If you are an independent developer who is interested in working on a Sugar activity, please introduce yourself and your project in an email to sugar-devel@lists.sugarlabs.org.

Quick Start

If you'd rather just start coding right now, it's easy to do!

  • Install sugar at first
    • The easiest way is installing sugar from native packages
    • If your favourite GNU/Linux distribution doesn't provide sugar or contains out-of-dated packages(in most cases you don't need latest minor release(like 0.82.1, 0.84.1), the good practise is looking for the last major release(0.82, 0.84)) you could consider possibility to use sugar-jhbuild - the system used by core developers to build sugar from last git sources.
  • Check ActivityTeam/TODO for ideas to work on. To start small, pick an Activity Feature Request. If you'd rather work on something harder, try one of the High Impact Tasks.
  • If you haven't already set up Sugar, see ActivityTeam/Resources.
  • Clone the Git repository for the project you picked and register it with Sugar.
git clone <project_url>
cd project_name
python setup.py dev
(Ctrl-Alt-Erase to restart Sugar)
  • Hack on the source code.
  • Create a patch file containing your changes.
git commit
git format-patch -1
  • Email 0001-My-change-description.patch to sugar-devel@lists.sugarlabs.org.
