Sugar

From Kiwix
Jump to navigation Jump to search
XO computer

Sugar is a Desktop environment thought for kids. It's especially known to be provided in XO computers of the One Laptop Per Child (olpc) project. Because Kiwix is developed on GNU/Linux like Sugar, there is no principle problem to run Kiwix on Sugar... but they are still things to do.

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

The second difficulty is to integrate Kiwix in Sugar, that means:

  • Redesign the User Interface with XUL and CSS
  • Create the activity
  • Deal with the journal and such specific Sugar things

For that task we need a developer with Know-How both with Sugar and GNU Autotools.
