Sugar Labs at GSoC

Project Ideas

Title Mentor Project
Internationalization and Localization Chris Leonard
Brief explanation
A goal of Sugar Labs is to enable our users to experience Sugar in their own native language. See Translation Proposal To Do List for details. See Translation Team for framework description.
Expected results
Work flow improvements for i18n
Knowledge prerequisites
Some knowledge of Pootle; some scripting experience; Python and JavaScript
Full-color icons Design team
Brief explanation
We have been discussing the implications of removing the duo-tone restriction on Sugar icons, allowing for full-color icons. We can likely use badges to compensate for any functionality we'd lose. (See [1] as one example of how we might proceed.)
Expected results
A patch to Sugar that uses badges to manage the icon notifications such as activity and sharing
Knowledge prerequisites
Knowledge of GTK; Python.
Music Blocks optimizations

Walter Bender
Brief explanation
Music Blocks has never been optimized in any way. It would be helpful to review the tone.js optimization recommendations, as well as build some unit tests to measure and improve the program itself.
Expected results
A more robust and responsive Music Blocks.
Knowledge prerequisites
Knowledge of JavaScript, unit testing
Going Beyond Equal Temperament in Music Blocks

Walter Bender
Devin Ulibarri
Brief explanation
Most modern music systems are designed around equal temperament. But there are many ways to chose and tune notes in a musical system that offer different expressive characteristics. See also Music Blocks issues.
Expected results
Extend Music Blocks such that different approaches to temperament are available to the user.
Knowledge prerequisites
Knowledge of JavaScript, music theory
Maintenance of activities.sugarlabs.org (ASLO) Sam CG
Brief explanation
http://activities.sugarlabs.org/ is the Sugar Labs app store, where activities are hosted and downloaded. During GSoC 2017 we built ASLO v3 to address a number of deficiencies. But we have a few odds and ends that need to be addressed to bring the new site on line.
Expected results
Update missing license and repository info on the activities found in the Sugar Labs github repository. Popular the database for the new ASLO. Do extensive testing (including creating some test suites.) Document future maintenance on the Wiki.
Knowledge prerequisites
PHP, MySQL, Python, Apache, cron, PHP-Cake, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and git. See [2].
Lesson Plans for Music Blocks

Walter Bender
Devin Ulibarri

Hrishi Patel

Brief explanation
We have a Guide, but we really need some more scaffolding in the form of lesson plans.
Expected results
A website and PDF document that can be bound.
Knowledge prerequisites
Knowledge of music theory, writing skills
Just say no to GTK2 Ignacio Rodriguez
Cristian Garcia

Abhijit Patel
Ibiam Chihurumnaya

Brief explanation
GTK2 and GST0.10 are end of life. We need to upgrade the remaining activities with these dependencies.
Expected results
New versions of at least 25 existing Sugar activities.
Knowledge prerequisites
Knowledge of GTK, GST, and Python
Updating a new design of Sugarlabs wiki Jaskirat Singh

Expected results
New design of Wiki page of Sugarlabs
Knowledge prerequisites
Knowledge of mediawiki and use of some basic languages
Outreach Walter Bender
Brief explanation
We don't have a very friendly approach to outreach to new contributors. It would be great to make it easier to get involved and to navigate the path towards contributing to Sugar Labs. The goal of this project is to revamp our approach to outreach.
Expected results
A set of pages similar to [3] and [4]
