Setting up the Sugar environment
There are several options for setting up the Sugar environment for development.
- Install Sugar on Ubuntu, Fedora, or Debian, using apt or dnf;
- From Windows. macOS or iOS, run Sugar in a virtual machine;
- Live boot from Sugar on a Stick;
- or better yet, use Sugar Live Build containing Sugar 0.112, which can be booted from hard drive, flash drive, and optical media, automatically starting Sugar without persistence; or can be installed as a virtual machine, with persistence and password protection, and contains all build dependencies, configured source trees (git clones in /usr/src), and binaries (make install) for Sugar 0.112 (Download from http://people.sugarlabs.org/~quozl/sugar-live-build-20171009/).
Getting started with coding in Sugar
- You will need knowledge of Python and GTK (See http://python-gtk-3-tutorial.readthedocs.org/en/latest/);
- and then the basic of Sugar development (See http://www.flossmanuals.net/make-your-own-sugar-activities/);
Please note that you must run pep8 and pyflakes on your code before submitting your patches.
Getting started with GIT
Some knowledge of git is important as your work will be submitted to our git repository (https://github.com/sugarlabs). The basic mechanism is a pull request (PR), which is detailed in . It is required that you follow the steps outlined on the Contributing Page when doing coding and documentation tasks in GCI.
GitHub provides a tutorial (See https://try.github.io/levels/1/challenges/1), although there are many others as well.
Note that our bug tracker is http:bugs.sugarlabs.org.
