Welcome.  Your experience with Django is immediately useful; we have a
Django app called Pootle on https://translate.sugarlabs.org/ that has
not been maintained recently.  We continue to have occasional
translators, but I don't think we have an active translation manager.

You can find our guide to setting up a development environment at
https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar/blob/master/docs/development-environment.md

(Given your wish to port activities from Python 2 to Python 3, the
lowest cost development environment is a virtual machine instance of
Sugar Live Build installed on a virtual disk.  Only Sugar Live Build
supports both versions of Python at once now that Linux distributions
have dropped Python 2.  You would find it most efficient to use an SSH
server on the instance, and use your regular development environment
as an SSH client.  Using SSH in this way minimises the edit and test
cycle.)

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction

2020-12-14 Thread James Cameron
Welcome.  Thanks for volunteering.

Given your skills, one of the opportunities is to port Sugarizer
activities back to Sugar.

One of our goals has been to leverage work done on activities so that
they are available on both Sugar and Sugarizer.  Having a Sugar Web
library that works on both is a better outcome than having two
separate libraries, because it will reduce maintenance.

What has tended to happen is that developers who want to work on
JavaScript are attracted to Sugarizer, and developers who want to work
on Python are attracted to Sugar.  A division by language preference.

Once an activity is accepted into Sugarizer, developers have been
content with that dopamine hit and haven't worked to get the activity
working in Sugar.  Firstly because of the evolution of the Sugar Web
library inside Sugarizer, secondly because of scope constraints for
GCI tasks or GSoC projects, and thirdly because no other developers
have been working on JavaScript activities in Sugar.

Perhaps you, being skilled in JavaScript _and_ Python, may work on the
Sugar Web library, and port activities to Sugar.

Welcom Muskan.

The Sprint Math activity is embedded in the Sugarizer repository.

https://github.com/llaske/sugarizer/tree/master/activities/SprintMath.activity

Relevant data in the same repository can be found with "git grep
Sprint".

Or you could use GitHub to search for org.sugarlabs.SprintMath

For how to contribute to Sugarizer, see;

Now I want to start contributing with the sugar labs community but I can't

Thanks for asking.  All tasks contain some design.  There is more to
do than can possibly be done.  We don't have time to make a list.

Could you please self-direct?  Please use Sugar, Sugarizer or Music
Blocks, and choose what to work on, based on;

* your time,

* your interest,

* your equipment,

* how many other people are also interested, and;

* your previous experience with the languages, tools, and operating
  systems.

You are always the best judge of these things.  If you fail in one of
these areas, you can self-improve.

Lionel can tell you what needs doing in Sugarizer.  Walter can tell
you what needs doing in Music Blocks.  For Sugar, what needs doing is;

* maintenance of activities, through to release and publishing,

* back-porting Sugarizer activities to Sugar,

* adaption of Sugar to high resolution displays,

* review and testing of work by others.

You began looking at www-sugarlabs.  New developers should avoid
changes to our infrastructure, such as web sites and documentation,
until they have demonstrated ongoing contribution to Sugar, Sugarizer
or Music Blocks.

Am a junior product designer and software developer mostly front-end, with five 
months of experience in UI/UX Design, I also help to implement the designs into 
an actuall product. Please how can I joint the community and contribute as a 
UI/UX designer or Web designer? Recently I cloned the www.sugarlabs.org repo, 
had some issues on windows. When I asked the community for help realized I need 
Linux OS to contribute. Please while I work on that is their any design project 
I can work on?

What do you mean?  Designer is so vague.  Software designer?  Web site
designer?  Graphics designer?  System integration designer?  User
experience designer?  Design is part of everything we do already, and
a designer who can't implement what they design is generally
ineffective.

Welcome Deepak,

GCompris skills are needed.  The opportunities are;

already in existence as sugar activities. You can visit
activities.sugarlabs.org to view existing activities.

[Sugar-devel] Introduction and GSoC 2019 Idea Selection

2019-03-28 Thread sameer kumar
Hello Everyone, I am Sameer Kumar Satyadarshi an undergraduate student
of *Indian
Institute of Information Technology Kottayam Kottayam*, India.
I have been contributing to Sugarlabs for quite a while now. I have
analysed WRITE activity and want to contribute to it through GSoC 2019. I
have gone through other Text editors mentioned on the idea list.
I am developing my own basic rich text editor with primary functionalities [
Here ]. I am adding new features
like printing, export etc. in WRITE activity as mentioned in GSoC idea list.
I would like to contribute to Sugar Labs community, help me with further
insights regarding the project and way forward.

Hey,

I am an undergraduate student studying Computer Science.

I looked through the list of the projects and found the "Improve Sugarizer
Server Dashboard" interesting. I have good experience on working with web
development and js, I have gone through the source code and also opened a
PR. I look forward to contribute more to the community.

Thanks,

Welcome Yash.

Please choose some of the ideas you are really interested in, read
them carefully, look for ambiguities or places where information is
missing, and ask questions here on sugar-devel@.  We may then work
together to improve the ideas.

Please don't talk privately with mentors about the ideas, unless a
mentor has specifically asked you to.  Sugar Labs benefits most from
public discussion.  See our Code of Conduct for more details on
expected behaviour;


https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar-docs/blob/master/src/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md

There are plenty of things you can do to improve your suitability; see
"How can I help?" and "Contribute code";

https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar-docs

Also do some deep learning and practice with the technologies and
tools.  Given your experience with MERN, you might learn the other
tools used by Sugarizer.  See the repository for Sugarizer, both the
master and dev branches;

​This method should be preferred.  It is easy and effective, doesn't
destroy history, and points toward where you want people to look.

I don't know.  I don't have administrator rights on the Wiki.  Hope
Walter or someone else can answer.  Meanwhile, I've been replacing
migrated pages with links to the new location, so that old links don't
break.

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction and review request of GSoC Proposal:

2018-03-26 Thread Rudra Sadhu
thanks James for the assessment.

I've successfully migrated a few of the pages from
https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities to GitHub
Find the pull request at https://github.com/godiard/help-activity/pull/38

and now, the wiki-pages needs to be deprecated.
As to delete a page from the wiki, an user needs 'administrators' rights,

thus,
Some possible ways to delete the pages are:
1. create a bot account with restricted permissions which can delete
pages(my preferred choice)
2. for a temporary period grant delete rights to me
3. someone trusted deletes the pages
4. something else and better (please suggest)

It may not be convenient to delete the pages manually as there will be
thousands of those(including extra images/files attached to the pages) for
the 345 pages to be migrated
All of the deletion is preferred to be done by a script (which uses
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Delete), under close supervision
Do not worry, no damage(if at all) will be permanent; since it is possible
to always recover pages deleted by an user with 'administrators' rights.
Read https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Deletion_and_undeletion

Please recommend the desired course of action

thanks,
Rudra Sadhu

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction and review request of GSoC Proposal:

2018-03-25 Thread James Cameron
Thanks, I've reviewed your updated proposal.

My assessment of project impact;

Originally documentation was separate because we had non-coding
developers and tool chains that varied by type of developer.  Now we
use GitHub the tool chains are combined.

With the project as described, documentation will be concentrated in
the source code repository for an activity, reducing ongoing
maintenance.

We have less active Wiki contributors than we ever did, and in the
current threat environment a Wiki requires significant monitoring and
administration; we recently lost some system administrators and gained
new ones; using GitHub allows us to outsource system administration.

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction and review request of GSoC Proposal:

2018-03-25 Thread Rudra Sadhu
Thanks James, Carlos, Gonzalo and everyone for the insights

Your inputs helped a lot, and I've updated my proposal accordingly.
A lot of important stuff was added such as the working the Help Activity,
keeping check on the activity bundle sizes and completing the miscellaneous
section.

The proposal is available at https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/
go/Summer_of_Code/2018/attentive_migration_of_wiki_activity_pages_to_git
I've also shared the same via the GSoC dashboard
Please read, most importantly the 'About Project' section

Let me know of the stuff I should add/remove/update to better justify the
task.

also It would help, if someone volunteers to answer the impact of this
project required to be filled in as an answer in the 'Project and the
Community' section

Thanks
Rudra Sadhu

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction and review request of GSoC Proposal:

On IRC #sugar Vipul Gupta asked;

 Hey, in the Activity task of migration. We need to
migrate content from activities page to their Githubs or their git
pages.

 ?

 Please clarify which one is it. Some pages don't have
the links of their repository

 The organisations is not uniform. I have included
this in my proposal too.

 vipulgupta2048: need to write a program that will migrate
content from wiki.sugarlabs.org activities page to respective GitHub
repository README.md files, yet without duplicating what is there, and
without duplicating user documentation in the help-activity, see
recent posts to sugar-devel@ discussing the issue.

write a mail.

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction and review request of GSoC Proposal:

2018-03-14 Thread James Cameron
G'day Rudra,

Thanks for being at the meeting earlier, and for your proposal.

A project for GSoC 2013 added context sensitive help, or user
documentation, to the Sugar desktop, with alt+shift+h key.

It works with the Help activity.  Metadata in the Help activity links a
subject activity to a markdown source file, which is converted to HTML
and rendered in a tiny browser.

Many of these source files came from the Wiki pages of activities, and
have been updated since then.

Please review and integrate the Help activity into your proposal; for
instance;

- avoid duplicating user documentation into activity repositories,
  because that would make for unncessary maintenance burden, or;

- move some of the Help activity files into activity repositories and
  provide a way to update the Help activity from the subject
  activities.

Please review the discussion on these two pull requests;

https://github.com/sugarlabs/activity-abacus/pull/12
https://github.com/sugarlabs/sugar-docs/pull/137

And then ask any questions to clarify, thanks.

Hi Rudra

Look nice the proposal you will talk more that in the  meeting with more
details in the Sugarlabs.org meeting at at 5PM US/Eastern (9PM UTC) and get
more feedback from the community.

I suggest try to complete the Miscellaneous section is important to try to
understand the enviroment. Unless Walter, James, Ignacio or other member
consider or confirm if it's ok.

Hello everyone!
My name is Rudra Sadhu,
and this is my first email to the sugar-developer mailing list.

I've been learning about the Sugar Labs community since the past one month.
lurking in IRC channels, using the sugar desktop environment, reading
mailing-list archives, exploring different parts of the wiki and codebase,
to better understand this community.

Application window for GSoC 2018 has opened and I'm interested to work with
Sugar Labs this summer.
For the project: 'Migration of wiki activity pages to git'
I've drafted a well thought implementation workflow, with all necessary
details.
Please find the proposal at
https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Code/2018/attentive_migration_of_wiki_activity_pages_to_git

I would love to discuss a lot more about different aspects of the proposal
in detail.
Let me know of everything you feel about the proposal, pointers on how it
could be improved and please point out any mistakes you find.

Your review and valuable feedback is important for the success of this
project.

But now, it got fix itself after restarting just now. I will still share

Hello! It's nice to meet you, Manraj! I'm a web developer in San
Francisco of the US. I saw your message in IRC, so you can ping me there
if it's easier for you. I've heard feedback that the server setup

I assume this is from after running the following step?

$ sudo mongod --fork --port 27018 --logpath /home/root/mongo.log

Exit 100 is an unhandled exception in mongo, the database. Can you post
the log from /home/manrajsingh/mongo.log ?

Also, after you post the logs, would you try this command instead?

   $ mkdir ~/mongodb
   $ mongod --dbpath /home/manrajsingh/mongodb --port 27018 --logpath 
/home/manrajsingh/mongo.log

Finally, what distro are you using?

Hi Roshan,
The best to start, if you already have a development environment and can
run Sugar,
is try to solve some bug in bugs.sugarlabs.org or try do some little
improvement to Sugar
or to the activities.
If you find a bug in bus.sugarlabs.org that you test and is already fixed,
please report, that is a good help.
If you are looking for the repositories of some activity,
this page can be useful:

 The docker-io is the correct package, the another one is something not

 Many distros are getting into this naming problem.

 So, you should remove docker and get docker-io.
 I think that the docker service will start automatically.

 This docker recipe should work across distributions as I didn't used
 specific items.

 I forgot to tell it but docker will only run on amd64 machines.

 The first time you'll run the script, docker will fetch the sugar image
 I've built. It's around 500mb, the source code used is in the Dockerfile
 located inside the github repo.
 It will be cached and the next launches will be almost instant.

any way to
preserve a state?

* Docker is using the packages installed in Fedora, right? What Fedora
version?
I am trying to understand if we should use this as a distribution option,
as a testing option or if we can use it to develop/test.

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction to the list

2015-05-12 Thread Michaël Ohayon
Great !

- I'll look onto preserving the state for the next versions

- Docker can run any docker container based on any linux.
Your os got his own docker version but you can run everything.
My Dockerfile specifies that the container should use fedora. So the guest
OS is fedora even if I use ArchLinux, Fedora or any other distro as host.

It's a great tool for develop/test. As you can see they are some
limitations for the distribution and some specific testing, like for the
hardware part but it's kinda stable.

The docker images are stored inside /usr/share/docker I think, don't delete
them manually or you'll get into troubles.

*How to remove things :*

Image : base Image of a system (like Fedora)
Container : running instance of an image

You can list images using : docker images -a
You can list containers using : docker ps -a
You can remove all containers using : docker rm `docker ps -aq`
You can remove all images using : docker rmi `docker images -aq`

You must kill and remove containers before images, so *to remove everything*
:
docker kill `docker ps -q`
docker rm `docker ps -aq`
docker rmi `docker images -aq`

The quote ` and not ' or  is important.

I'll setup a wiki page to keep this available !

 Each modification of a container is handled like a git commit so you

 Interesting. I don't know more from Docker than the sporadic news,
 could explain what can be done with the Sugar container?

[Sugar-devel] Introduction to the list

2015-04-29 Thread Michaël Ohayon
Hello everyone,

My name is Michaël Ohayon.

I'm new to this list and I'm very glad to contribute to Sugar during the
Google Summer Of Code !

I'm a 4th year computer science student at Epitech Paris.

I'm fond of free software and had the opportunity to help the local
Ubuntu's community for years during install parties.

I heard about Sugar thanks to Lionel Laské.

I have met Lionel at Le Spot by working with him on innovative projects.
I had the chance to try the XO there.

I had already heard about OLPC before and was happy to find one XO inside
my school campus.

Few months later, I joined the Docker Paris Hackathon and had built
Sugarizer and Sugar containers (with graphical support for the Sugar one).

I attended a GSOC conference and OLPC France Sugar training camp to the
Nosy Komba volunteers.

That's basically how I got to GSOC.

My proposal is the SugarWeb Basic ActivitySet which is a writting of some
essential apps for the web version of Sugar.

Here's the link to my GSOC proposal :
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Code/2015/mohayon.SugarWebBasicActivitySet

I've also got my own XO today and will use it to explore Sugar more in
detail !

See you on IRC,

Best regards,

2014-03-18 Thread Kamal Kaur
Hello there,

I'm Kamaljeet Kaur, a third year Computer Science student from Punjab,
India. I have interest in learning Python, JavaScript, HTML and CSS.
Have also used them in my previous open-source project.

On the announcement of selected organisations in GSoC-14, I didn't
know much about the organisations whose names I already knew.

As from my childhood, I got attracted towards art and creative stuffs,
the name Sugar-labs made me look inside. After exploring, I came to
know about the Design team, writers team and all the creative people
out there. I felt like, Wow! This community is for me. I can do it.
Explored more and set up the development environment. And this is my
first love that didn't make me feel like searching for any other
organisation that interests me meaning that I like the first one only
:D

Well, now I want to continue my journey with this sweet community:
Sugar-labs. Want to apply for Activity Unit Tests. What I have got
about it from my own interpretation is that Activity Unit Tests mean
something like testing output for other programs w.r.t. their Inputs.
Can be like checking the accuracy and reliability. Correct me if I'm
wrong.

@Mentors Walter Bender and Daniel Narvaez

Please guide me to explore and get more about this project. Or you'll
suggest me to explore other projects too? Please guide me so that I
can get the maximum about the project before applying which will help
me to understand it better and ultimately complete it properly.

Thank you.

Excerpts from James Simmons's message of Sat Jan 29 16:22:49 +0100 2011:

 The book Make Your Own Sugar Activities! has some suggestions on
 development environments and many other topics:
 
 http://en.flossmanuals.net/ActivitiesGuideSugar/Introduction

[...]

In the What About Using sugar-jhbuild? section you write:

 When you're done you'll have an up to date test environment that you
 can run as an alternative to sugar-emulator.

sugar-jhbuild is an alternative to installing Sugar from distro
packages, nothing more or less.

In order to run Sugar inside an already-running desktop system (very
similar to running Linux inside a VM, just at the desktop system level
instead of at the operating system level) you can use sugar-emulator, no
matter how you installed it (distro packages or sugar-jhbuild).

Similarly, you can run Sugar in native mode no matter whether you got
it from distro packages or using sugar-jhbuild.

It would be nice if you could clarify this in your book, because this
misunderstanding has been a major source of confusion in the past (and
probably still is in the present).

Excerpts from Gary Martin's message of Sat Jan 29 16:09:43 +0100 2011:

  I don't have an XO laptops but I do have a VirtualBox Fedora and Ubuntu VMs 
  running sugarlabs. What do you use as a Python editor- I was hoping to use 
  eclipse but I have used a basic introduction to VIM in my classes so it can 
  be anything. I played around in the SugarLabs Pippy editor but I was hoping 
  that I could write another machine and import.
 
 The first things I usually yum install to a new Sugar image are vim and git, 
 that way I can git clone an Activity repository into the ~/Activities 
 directory, tinker with it using vim, and easily git commit and git push 
 changes back to the main repository after testing. If I'm going to be making 
 large source changes or starting something new I'll often just work on my Mac 
 using Xcode (my source editor of choice) and scp the Activity directory over 
 to various Sugar builds for testing.

FWIW, I'm increasingly using sshfs to hack on code that's inside a VM.
sshfs allows you to mount a remote file system that's accessible via
ssh/sftp and access it as if it were a local file system. That way you
can use all the editing / VCS / whatever tools you're used to, without
having to install them inside the VM. Because the tools are running on
your real machine, they work as usual - including things like
copypaste across applications (which requires special guest additions
in VirtualBox and doesn't work at all in KVM).

IIRC I've successfully used a special port of sshfs on MacOS X some time
ago. There are also tools for Windows that seem to provide something
similar, but I haven't tried them myself.

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction

2011-01-30 Thread James Simmons
Sascha,

What I was trying to get across is that while the distro packages are
what most people should be using, they aren't up to the minute.  By
installing sugar-jhbuild you can test both the latest Sugar and an
older version that is more likely to be used in the field on the same
box without the two environments interfering with each other.  That's
not the easiest point to get across.  I also say that most developers
should not use sugar-jhbuild, at least not to begin with.

I'll look at it again when I have a chance.

 In the What About Using sugar-jhbuild? section you write:

 When you're done you'll have an up to date test environment that you
 can run as an alternative to sugar-emulator.

 sugar-jhbuild is an alternative to installing Sugar from distro
 packages, nothing more or less.

 In order to run Sugar inside an already-running desktop system (very
 similar to running Linux inside a VM, just at the desktop system level
 instead of at the operating system level) you can use sugar-emulator, no
 matter how you installed it (distro packages or sugar-jhbuild).

 Similarly, you can run Sugar in native mode no matter whether you got
 it from distro packages or using sugar-jhbuild.

 It would be nice if you could clarify this in your book, because this
 misunderstanding has been a major source of confusion in the past (and
 probably still is in the present).

 I don't have an XO laptops but I do have a VirtualBox Fedora and Ubuntu VMs

 eclipse but I have used a basic introduction to VIM in my classes so it can 
 be anything. I played around in the SugarLabs Pippy editor but I was hoping 
 that I could write another machine and import.
 
 The first things I usually yum install to a new Sugar image are vim and git, 
 that way I can git clone an Activity repository into the ~/Activities 
 directory, tinker with it using vim, and easily git commit and git push 
 changes back to the main repository after testing. If I'm going to be making 
 large source changes or starting something new I'll often just work on my 
 Mac using Xcode (my source editor of choice) and scp the Activity directory 
 over to various Sugar builds for testing.
 
 FWIW, I'm increasingly using sshfs to hack on code that's inside a VM.
 sshfs allows you to mount a remote file system that's accessible via
 ssh/sftp and access it as if it were a local file system.

Thanks for the hint! Sounds like a nice improvement to my usual work flow :-) 
I'll make sure to give it a run through.

Regards,
--Gary

 That way you
 can use all the editing / VCS / whatever tools you're used to, without
 having to install them inside the VM. Because the tools are running on
 your real machine, they work as usual - including things like
 copypaste across applications (which requires special guest additions
 in VirtualBox and doesn't work at all in KVM).
 
 IIRC I've successfully used a special port of sshfs on MacOS X some time
 ago. There are also tools for Windows that seem to provide something
 similar, but I haven't tried them myself.

Fab, I see you've already found the Activity Team pages on the wiki, that

dev environment running comfortably (I use a mix of XO-1 laptops and my Mac 
laptop running a VirtualBox VM of Fedora with Sugar installed as its desktop) 
one way to help contribute could be to adopt an un-maintained Activity. This 
usually involves:

- getting familiar with Python, and some GTK+

As Gary says one of the best ways to help is adopting an activity.

All the pages inside Category Activity Team are useful.

perceived by those who know them best. We would be very grateful if you
would take a few moments of your time to share your perspectives with us.
We will use your input to generate strategic recommendations for how Sugar
Labs can increase its reach throughout the global community.

From a personal level, we all came to Sugar Labs due to our passion for
education and international development.  Alex previously served in the
Peace Corps, Laura worked at a non-profit, Julie served on the Board of an
educational non-profit for low-income students, and Parul has worked in
software development with an educational focus.  We are passionate about

Some of you may have already heard that I have accepted a position
with ActivityCentral to be the project manager for Dextrose.  It feels
like I have come full circle as I started out as a volunteer
maintaining the F11 for the XO-1 builds for the past 18 months.
That work was very rewarding and I was glad to see OLPC step in and
release official builds based on my work.  The F11 for the XO-1 was
also a starting point for the original Dextrose system, which Bernie
Innocenti brought to fruition.

Now we will be taking the original Dextrose and expanding upon it.
Dextrose2 will be the result.  Based on Fedora11 and Sugar 0.88 it
will strive for stability, while providing deployments with a
customizable product.  I have already started creating builds for the
new system with additional language support, and they can be found at
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Dextrose .  The builds will be for both
the XO-1 and XO-1.5 and will be available both with Gnome and without.

We have a team of developers at SEETA who will be working on this with
us.  Many of them are already known to the community and more will
become known as they join the effort.

I have already started going over the outstanding issues and know that
with everyone's help we can make Dextrose the Premier system for XO
deployments.

What about reusing bazaar.sl.o as Dextrose repository for all sugar
packages (it could be only sugar, other packages like hw maybe reused
directly from upstream, attached after bazaar repo or even build on
bazaar)?

I'm planing to have 0.88 Sugar Platform run on f11 at the end of this
week.

The benefits I see here is that we can reuse Dextrose efforts(regarding
to sugar itself) in other sugar distros directly (just building for
particular distro). Also, we can have the same repo of activities on
bazaar (w/o repacking it for several distros).

[Sugar-devel] Introduction to this year's GSoC teams

2010-04-27 Thread Tim McNamara
Thank you to all of the students and mentors that have invested their time
in assisting Sugar Labs through the GSoC application process.
Contratulations to the successful students! As you will have inferred from
my previous emails, this year's applications were of a very high calibre.

If you were unsuccessful, we would still love your contributions! There were
several applications that we regretfully needed to turn down that would be
excellent additions to Sugar.

Here are the successful projects:


*Enhancing Sugar on a Stick*
  Sebastian Dziallas (sdziallas), mentored by Walter Bender
  http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Code/2010/Improved_Sugar_on_a_Stick
  Selected comments:

   - The author of this proposal has outlined a realistic timeline for a
   valuable project and has demonstrated that he has the knowledge, motivation,
   and contacts necessary to succeed and to grow.
   - SoaS is a critial part of the Sugar strategy for reaching out to
   teachers.

**
*Pippy Improvements*
  Dinko Galetić (dgaletic), mentored by Michael Stone
  http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Code/2010/Pippy_improvements
  Selected comments:

   - This is a fine proposal, well aligned with Sugar's goals, made by a
   talented candidate.


*Abstract Browser*
  Lucian Branescu Mihaila (lucian), mentored by Luis Gustavo Lira
  http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Summer_of_Code/2010/AbstractBrowser
  Selected comments:

   - This is a clear and focused proposal about a clear need
   - Lucian demonstrated that he is up to the task last summer--he could
   revitalize this important corner of Sugar

I wish the teams the best of luck. Congratulations to the sucessful
students!

I'll be updating the wiki today my time. Please feel to come to me with any
questions.

2010-04-23 Thread Roopesh P Raj
Hi All,

I am an experienced python developer, I have also worked with zope, css,
html, javascript, java, and web framework like turbogears. I have a physics
background and is very much interested in educational activities.

I came to know about the project through OLPC project page. I am interested
in getting involved in sugar lab project in what ever way I can. I can
contribute through code contribution, bug fixes, testing etc. I can also
contribute in documenting the work also.

Please guide me in getting started - please suggest me any projects which
requires python expertise so that I can start exploring.

I don't have a linux box, I have only a laptop with windows installed. Will
that be a problem?

Warm Regards,
Roopesh

Roopesh,

If you're interested in developing Activities you might check out the
FLOSS Manual Make Your Own Sugar Activities! at this URL:

http://en.flossmanuals.net/ActivitiesGuideSugar/Introduction

You might want to check out http://activities.sugarlabs.org to see
what is already available.  That might give you ideas about where you
could contribute.

You don't need a dedicated Linux box to do development for Sugar.  You
could run Linux in a VM on your laptop if it has enough memory to do
that, or you could set up the laptop to boot either Linux or Windows.
I do the dual-boot option myself.  You just need to create a partition
on your hard drive to hold Linux.  Having Linux partitions on your
laptop will not affect your experience running Windows, other than
losing the disk space the partitions use.

In addition to Jim's suggestion re writing an activity, we have a
number open tickets of varying sorts in our bug tracker
(bugs.sugarlabs.org) and a number of open feature requests described
in our wiki (wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features) as places to get
inspiration.

 Please guide me in getting started - please suggest me any projects which

Not a problem. You can install Sugar in a VM that runs in Windows.

regards.

 Sure.  alsroot is listed as the current maintainer, but he's already got
 plenty of activities to maintain so I guess he'll be glad to let you
 take Speak over or, even better, co-maintain Speak with you.

sure, ask Joshua(Cc'ed) to add you to git.sl.o/speak commiters list

  I've also been having a good look around gitorious and found this:
 
  http://git.sugarlabs.org/projects/listen-spell-new
  
  Which looks like the speak-and-spell type applicaton that you talked
  about. I believe this is a fork of listen-spell which was a Google
  Summer of Code project last year.
 
 There's no code in git, however.  I'm cc'ing chiragjain1989 in case he
 can tell us more.

I guess its the same project

  I think it's quite fitting that there is a speak and spell app for the
  XO... the XOs remind me a lot of the speak and spell units (it's the
  moulded plastic). ET phone home? Maybe we also need a SETI app :P
 
 lol ;-)
 
 Please, also keep the sugar-devel@ mailing list on cc for this kind of
 communication, so others can jump in with their ideas and suggestions.

Re: [Sugar-devel] Introduction and question about introducing Sugar development

2009/6/26 Steve Dalton steve.dal...@gmail.com:
 Hi All

 Just went on IRC channel - but no-one around - so I'll try here.

 Steve Dalton here from Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. I'm an experienced 
 developer - mainly C/C++/Java/Groovy - but also dabble with Ruby/Python, just 
 starting out playing with Sugar development

 I was kindly donated 5 XOs a while back and I have been trying to get a bit 
 of a local OLPC developers group started here in QLD. Have young kids and my 
 (almost) 4 year old is already getting stuck into Sugar and working things 
 out which makes me think you guys are onto something really awesome - I'd 
 love to help in some way.

 Anyway - one way I think I might be able to stimulate some local activity is 
 by doing some sort of live demo on developing with Sugar. I was hoping to 
 demo something at Barcamp Brisbane next month and possibly something at the 
 OSDC (Open Source Developers Conference) in Brisbane later this year if it 
 works. I have made one of my paper submission for OSDC a Sugar one but It's 
 sitting in my drafts folder until I can be sure I have something that has 
 half a chance of working out (I like jumping in at the deep-end but don't 
 want to make a complete fool of myself).

 Does anyone have any good suggestions on what to do? I've done the Hello 
 world demo and had a look at some of the activities already developed... but 
 was hoping to do something a little more interesting with some cool value 
 to get people interested. Are there any canned demos or tutorials around that 
 anyone can recommend? Might give me some ideas.

Not that I know, though my recommendation would be to check out how
your kid is using Sugar and think of how the learning experience could
be improved. Most experienced developers will be happier to help if
it's something that addresses a real need than if it's something done
out of pure curiosity.

Regards,

Tomeu

 Many thanks in advance
 Steve

The #sugar channel is usually very active.

This weekend, most Sugar Labbers are in Berlin for the LinuxTag 
FUDCon, and anyway it was night in Europe and US when you posted this.

As you learn your way through Sugar, please let us know what was hard to
discover or unclear in our documentation, development process or code.

We need to find out what makes it hard for newcomers to get started to
lower the bar as much as possible.  We go around saying that young kids
will one day become contributors, so there's a lot of work to do in this
area.

If sugar-jhbuild defeats you, try my streamlined clone.  I believe it
makes things faster and easier, but it's been tested lightly on distros
other than Fedora 11.

Also let us know what parts of the UI work well and which ones don't for
kids that young.

Are you aware of the OLPC friends local community in Oz?

 http://www.olpcfriends.org/


My good friend Joel Stanley from Adelaide (also on this list) was
planning to start a Local Lab some time ago.  You should get in contact
with him as well.

 Hello world demo and had a look at some of the activities already
 developed... but was hoping to do something a little more interesting
 with some cool value to get people interested. Are there any canned

Many others can give you better advice than me on the current status of
development, but my feeling is that we need to involve more people on
enhancing existing activities rather than start new ones.

From your skill profile, you seem suitable for working on Browse, which
is xulrunner C++ code wrapped in a Python UI.  Caution: it's non-trivial
code, certainly not recommended for beginners.

Since you have pre-school kids, you might want to work on enhancing
Speak.  It's currently unmaintained, but very simple and cool IMHO...
Wouldn't it be awesome if someone grew it into a Speak  Spell activity?


 Many thanks in advance

Thanks to *you* for helping!
