Polishing GlassHUD and moving towards CortUI 1.80

Posted by Cort, Feb 5 2011, 03:21 PM in CortUI

Hello everyone,


Bunnywabbit and me are pretty much moving into the polishing phase with GlassHUD now. There are quite a number of minor things left to fix and I decided to try an approach that has become fairly common in the open source space (see Mozilla and LibreOffice for example) and mark some bugs with the keyword 'goodfirstbug'. These are ideal for someone who's interested in learning MDL and/or supporting GlassHUD/CortUI.
Of course, if you want a real challenge, you can also grab a bug that does not have this keyword. You should probably get in contact with Bunny or me then regarding design issues.

Everything that is in the state 'new' or 'assigned' (but not 'accepted') is generally free to work on. You should 'accept' a ticket before starting work on it though, to avoid others working on the same issue simultaneously.

List of all open Good First Bugs.
List of all 1.80 tickets.

The main way to get your change in, is to attach a patch file to the corresponding bug. We'll gladly help you create these if you've never done it before. If really necessary, you can also just attach the modified file, but integrating those can in the worst case make us more work than you could've saved us.

The latest installer build can be found on the CortUI website: http://cortui.rtsquad.org/.
The Modulus package has not yet been updated to include GlassHUD.

Looking forward to your contributions!


PS: I started writing a guide and a list of first steps if you want to help out with CortUI: http://cortui.rtsquad.org/wiki/Development. Feedback welcome, please tell me what you find hard to understand so I can improve it.

Somehow, I've managed to go all this time without trying CortUI, but I finally installed it a couple days ago... And I just wanted to say thank you for coding it. smile.gif I knew its basic features before, but I didn't realise what an improvement it really makes to the game. You are quite awesome.

I'm submerged under a huge pile of RL.

I hope to surface in a week or so.
