      Testing

      This activity deals heavily with the sugar api. More people testing the activity and filing bugs on the sugar bug tracker would be great. Component FileShare on the the sugarlabs bug tracker: http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/query?component=FileShare

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        We need people to download version 0.4.5 and make sure the frobulator still frobulates correctly.

  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

    • [X]
      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with FileShareActivity that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.

About FileShareActivity

(logo)

FileShare is an activity that allows the user to share files from their journal on the xo laptop. When the activity is started, the user is brought to a screen where they can add and remove files to the share list. They also have the option to install back to journal, useful if restored at a later time.

After the user has shared the activity, any user who joins has the ability to download any files being shared.

If a server script is running on the jabber server the xo is connected to, they will be able to upload/download files to the server for a mini file library.

from the profile of Justin Lewis (jlew)

The code is mostly written in C.
