I'm not a software developer at all, but wondering if this would be a relatively simple project for creating an android shortcut.
My parents like doing the guardian quick crossword: https://www.theguardian.com/crosswords/quick/, I was thinking as a project with some practical purpose would to be have an app where it would take you to the crossword of the day in a different browser app. eg. https://www.theguardian.com/crosswords/quick/15049, the number at the end relates to the day so 15049 = today. There isn't a crossword on sunday, so there would have to be a simple line of code for the number.
There is a speedy crossword on sunday so that has a different web address: https://www.theguardian.com/crosswords/series/speedy
I can write a bit of code in python to do it:
def guardiancrossword(): import datetime import webbrowser today = datetime.date.today() someday = datetime.date(2018, 7, 29) diff = today - someday d = diff.days if d%7 == 0: x = int(d/7.0 + 1191) webbrowser.open('https://www.theguardian.com/crosswords/speedy/'+str(x)) else: x = int(d%7+((d - d%7)/7.0)*6 + 15046) webbrowser.open('https://www.theguardian.com/crosswords/quick/'+str(x))
Any Ideas as if this is a feasible project or is there some way to do this in a browser. Ideally it would be running on an android tablet.
Now per a suggestion I think a web page that executes the script to get the correct link would be better, but I don't know how you do that.
