During the last meeting, your group identified a GNOME App to work on.
To contribute to a project, it is first necessary to set up a development environment with the latest version. This will allow you to make changes, test them, and create patches. This tutorial describes how to do this using Flatpak and an IDE called Builder. This is the recommended method for new contributors, and is the easiest way to get started.
If you would prefer to use the command line or a different IDE, an experimental developer command line tool is available. It is also possible to use JHBuild, GNOME's build tool for system components and apps that don't support Flatpak.
Flatpak is a technology for installing and distributing applications. This tutorial requires Flatpak version 0.9.2, which is available in most distributions. Installing it is usually just a matter of installing the flatpak package.
Note for Ubuntu users: Install a package called 'tracker', it will be necesary for most of the apps.
After you install or update Flatpak, restart your system so it will work properly. Even if it seems to work, restart your system.
See the Flatpak website for details on how to install it on a wide range of distributions.
