[Wikimediaindia-l] Wikisource Android Apps

Greetings All,

We are happy to announce that the CIS-A2K team have been initiated to develop the Wikisource Android apps for Wikisource reader. Over the last couple of months, a group of devs from the Tamil language community have been putting together an Android Wikisource App for us. They have been finished their POC of the app. In the coming month, we will engage some developers to develop iOS apps for the same. We think it’s finally gotten to a good state for people to start hacking on it.

For those just wanting to get started here are the links
Initial code: https://github.com/ViluppuramGLUG/WikisourceApp

How can you help?

In the coming month, we may help to do the following …

  • Fork the code and help us with open bug requests
  • Critique the code and suggest a cleanup
  • Start to hack on new features UI.
  • Localization for the user interface

Also, you may comment/suggest/feedback our meta talk page https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikisource_Apps
