Introduction

Fedora Developer Portal would be a new place for developers, providing information about tools, technology and other features that are packaged in Fedora. It would raise awareness about new and existing projects among users.

Main Purpose

The project would provide information to developers working on Fedora. To be clear, I am talking about developers building *on* Fedora, rather than contributing *to* Fedora.

The site would help developers to:

  1. Explore: What tools and tech Fedora offers? (DevAssistant, Vagrant, Python, Ruby, ...)
  2. Build: How to use this tech? How it is packaged in Fedora?
  3. Deploy: Which deployment technology should I use? (Copr, Nulecule, xdg-app, Software Collections, OpenShift ...)

Resources

Milestones & Progress

The project will run in five two-week scrums, started on Jul 16, 2015 and ready to be released on Sept 24, 2015. Expected results at the end of each scrum are as follows:

  • Jul 30, 2015 - Working prototype, testing instance deployed
  • Aug 13, 2015 - Design mockups ready
  • Aug 27, 2015 - Design implemented
  • Sep 10, 2015 - Beta release, Content 100% completed
  • Sep 24, 2015 - Project ready for release

    • Flask
    • Django
    • Ruby on Rails
    • PostgreSQL
    • ...

To be completed...

Example

Ruby

  • Installation (both RPM and upstream)
  • Explain them why we have ruby-mri bin and why we use rubypick
  • Answers to how our Ruby differs from upstream
  • Let users know we have a lot or RubyGems packaged
  • Show them our https://github.com/zuhao/isitfedoraruby
  • Let them know there is something like Fedora Ruby SIG that they can join

Vagrant

  • how to get packaged Vagrant
  • providers
    • libvirt
    • how to run libvirt with vagrant without sudo
  • list of plugins we maintain
  • troubleshooting, how to report problems
  • Fedora Vagrant boxes (links)

"I am a Ruby developer" view

  • combination/listing of pages we have and are relevant
  • Ruby, Rails, Vagrant, docker, DevAssistant would show up
