From Kiwix

XO computer

Sugar is a Desktop environment created for kids. It is especially known to be provided in XO computers of the One Laptop Per Child (olpc) project. Like Sugar, Kiwix is developed on GNU/Linux, so there are no major problems running Kiwix on Sugar... but there are still issues to fix.

The first difficulty is that Kiwix should be compiled statically (natively in Sugar), which is not fully finished for GNU/Linux... but already works for MS Windows and MacOSX.

The second difficulty is to integrate Kiwix into Sugar, which means:

  • Redesign the User Interface with XUL and CSS
  • Create the program
  • Deal with the journal and other things specific to Sugar

For that task we need a developer with expertise with in working with Sugar and GNU Autotools.
