I'd like a game of solitaire

So, anyone working on a native solitaire game? On the N900, I found solitaire quite useful for forcing myself awake in the morning. Would be nice to also have that possibility on the Jolla, without fighting with Dalvik.

Oh, Klondike would be fine. Freecell would also work. (I know that stuff like GNOME Aisleriot has lots of others, but that may not be trivial to make a Sailfish version of.)

Having pySol would be amazing. A pySol junior version would be great. Even a pySol minimalist version would be very nice indeed. Just imagine showing people that demo mode. Maybe the huge number of games in pySol could be divided into a family of apps? One deck games, two deck games, mahjongg, etc.

There's already a solitaire game in the store called 'SolitaireGames' by munski. It has many different games. I'm sure many has noticed it since it has been available for many months now.

Yes, but its Klondike variants are too hard to be worth playing in the morning, and it doesn't have Freecell either. (Yes, there's an independent Freecell app, but it barely works.)

Gnome Aisleriot has a number of good quality solitaire games written in Schema and the program itself written in C with GObject and GTK+. It includes Klondike (with a few variations), Spider and Freecell and almost 80 other games.

If it could be ported (or rewritten) in C++ and QML (Qt) with mobile friendly GUI I think it would be a success. I think that regular Qt would work better than Silica and that would make it possible to port it to Android too (larger user base but Sailfish first of course).

I could take part of in that effort but I know I couldn't do it alone. I know my way with C++, QML and Git. But be aware that it would be a lot of work to do.
