Re: What do I need to contribute to the RedNotebook code?


I would suggest to pick a small project to work on first. E.g. try to implement the sound playback in a standalone application with only a commandline interface, then later turn it into an app with just one window and one button. Improve from there: Make the application fit your needs better. While doing this I strongly recommend reading the python tutorial at http://docs.python.org/tutorial/ and the pygtk tutorial (for the graphical stuff) at http://www.pygtk.org/pygtk2tutorial/index.html.

When you have your application try to implement it in the RedNotebook codebase. You can get the development version of RedNotebook by doing

bzr branch lp:~jendrikseipp/rednotebook/next rednotebook-next

Good luck ;)

Hi all, and Jendrik in particular!

After finding another idea on expanding RNB's functionality (adding 1-3
sound snippets to each day with an easy Play Now interface), I almost
immediately had a shockback thought: "You human! Do you think Jendrik
will have enough time to code all the weird ideas of yours?"

I'm not saying I definitely will be in for coding down any suggestion,
but still, Jendrik, what would I need for starting to work with Python?

Which books, which compilers (Win+Lin), which, erm, free code snippets
(like your calendar widget) and which databases for them would you
recommend to a young upstart newbie?

How did you start working with it, by the way? =)

Thanks for reading this letter,
