      Please shoot me an email at Druage@gmx.com or message me on the #phoenix-dev irc channel, on the freenode server.
      I can go into detail about how the audio, video, and input system works.

  • Q: Other than writing code, how can I contribute?

    • 0
      Writing documentation, and making sure the code follows our coding style. Also drawing mockups or artwork for the project are wanted.

      • Tip:

        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?

      • 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 Phoenix that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

    • 0
      Warning dialogs haven't been added to the project.

      The more important parts of the project haven't been completed yet, and so all of the effort has been put on tasks with a higher priority.

      • 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 Phoenix

(logo)

This is an open source emulation frontend. This program runs on Linux, OSX, and on Windows.

Phoenix is not a normal emulation frontend, in which the backend code is completely separate from the frontend. We handle the video, audio, input, and library management for many different emulators.

The emulators are targeting a graphics api, called the libretro api, so that we can have mutliple emulators working in a consistent way.

This project is done in C++ and Qt. We also use Python for various emulator tools.

from the profile of Druage

The code is mostly written in C++, Qt's QML.
