For the third year, Joplin has been selected as a Google Summer of Code mentor organisation! We look forward to start working with the contributors on some great new projects. This year's main themes are:
- Mobile and tablet development - we want to improve the mobile/tablet application on iOS and Android.
- Plugin and external apps - leverage the Joplin API to create plugins and external apps.
- And of course contributors are welcome to suggest their own ideas.
Our full idea list is available here: GSoC 2022 idea list
In the coming month (March 7 - April 3), contributors will start getting involved in the forum and start discussing project ideas with the mentors and community. It's also a good time to start looking at Joplin's source code, perhaps work on fixing bugs or implement small features to get familiar with the source code, and to show us your skills.
One difference with previous years is that anyone, not just students, are allowed to participate.
Additionally, last year Google only allowed smaller projects, while this year they allow again small and large projects, so we've indicated this in the idea list - the small ones are 175 hours, and the large ones 350 hours.
