The Pulper is a simple CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) application.
The data sets are Pulp Magazine editions from the 30s and 40s because, frankly, who doesn’t love reading pulp magazines.
The data has a variety of publishers, magazines and series pre-populated.
Each user has a unique session. This is valid for 5 minutes without activity, at which point it will be deleted and you will be provided with a new session.
The main entities are:
Book brings all of the entities together in that a Book has a publisher, an Author (multiple authors often), belongs in a Series and also has a House Author.
Note, not all pulp magazine fit into this model. Since this is a test app I don’t really mind.
We have a variety of screens showing clickable reports, lists of stuff, create screens, edit/amend screens and you can delete Entity Instances (e.g. a book) from the edit screens.
I’m sure you’ll find your way around.
You can find different versions of the app downloadable from Github
A simple CRUD Application.
A simple Canned Data Application.
The different versions may be easier to automate, harder, different stylings, buggy etc.
It can be outrageously expensive to collect original pulp magazines and they have a tendency to fall apart when you try to read them.
Sadly, the pulp archive above does not seem to have any issues of The Spider, or Doc Savage but there are companies still reprinting these today.
I highly recommend hunting out reprints of:
Or you could read easier to get hold of reprints e.g. HP Lovecraft, or Robert E Howard’s Conan or Solomon Kane.
