Asked by TROUVERIE Joachim on 2016-05-28

Hello !

First of all, thank you all for this app, I use it every day in my job to keep traces of my tasks.

I'm a Python developer and would really like to contribute to the code. Unfortunately I don't really know where to start.
I have already read the contributing part on the web site (http://zim-wiki.org/contribute.html) and begin to look for bugs that I could eventually fix.

What is your process concerning the bug assignation ? Do I need to post a comment on the concerned bugs so you can assigned it to me ?

Have you some simple bugs in mind, that I could fix to help me mastering the code ?

I'm looking forward to hearing from you

Hi Joachim,

Help is always welcome! Afraid the current state of the bug tracker it is not very well organized to make it easy to start. So may need some help from my side to find a good entry point.

I recently made a pass over the whole list and flagged all bugs that I want to review again with the tag "2min", this is the full list: https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bugs?field.tag=2min

Not all of these bugs are easy to fix, but my rationale was that I think for these bugs it is either a quick fix (really 2 minutes being of course to ambitious), or it is a quick action to assess whether or not it is a quick fix. Maybe you can check if there are some of this list that have your interest and I can help you get up to speed.

You should be able to assign bugs yourself. But please only do so if you really have some code in progress, not just to show the intend.

Regards,

Jaap

Thank you for your quick answer.

I'm going to look into it to find a bug that I could easily fix.

Regards,

Thanks Jaap Karssenberg, that solved my question.

Could you also give me a link to a document referencing the following coding style in Zim ?

For example, browsering the code I saw that tabs are used instead of the 4 spaces recommended by the pep8 that i'm used to.

Regards,

Have a look at the "HACKING" folder in the source code :)
