To follow up with Orangecat’s testimony, on teaching to code apps for SFOS, I would like suggest an inventory/census of existing documentation available out there of some app development.
The goal I picture is to have a ‘wiki like’ database where a new comer can quickly find tutorials in all existing languages.
Let’s take for example the two official links i think everyone knows: (Jolla’s documentation and QT’s documentation):
[EN] [Tutorial - Combining C++ with QML] Creating an animal list app with QML frontend and C++ backend - archive link
[EN] [Tutorial - Creating an application in Python] Creating an app using python for displaying a chosen color - archive link
[EN][SailfishOS Introduction Tutorial] Installing SailfishOS IDE and creating your first app - archive link
The frame is: [language][official title - with hyperlink] your summary/keywords - the internet archive link, if it exists
I would like to suggest to the owners of these blogs to add the linked page to Archive.org, so if the blog would close, the information still exists.
And for the people adding others documentation (like me), to reach out to the blog’s owner asking if they can add their link to archive.org. This could lead to past SFOS users coming back just to check on what’s happening for curiosity .
If the blog/post/article is in an other language, I suggest translating the title and the summary to English and specifying the language in the [language] part:
[FR][Adapting the BEPO keyboard to a Sailfish OS smartphone] Creating and installing a custom keyboard for SFOS - archive link
If you have any recommendation regarding the frame (like adding also the last date of edition of the article or the OS compatibility version) feel free to tell me. That is mostly it, I will try to find past links shared on this forum and the old one to bring them here too.
