Inqlude, the Qt software archive

a project by cschum

During Hack Week 7 I worked on an archive of Qt-based libraries. The goal was to easily make all available Qt libraries accessible to developers. Think CPAN for Qt. So I hacked on a web site and a command line client. There was a little bit of progress on the project since then, but with the upcoming KDE Frameworks 5 there will be quite a number of additional libraries available for Qt developers. This should be well represented in Inqlude as well. The coverage of Inqlude is also still not complete, and the tooling needs some improvement as well, especially regarding integration with distributions.

OCI Image Distribution with RPMs

a project by cyphar

Currently the Open Container Initiative doesn't specify a distribution protocol or system, and the current "standard" format is the Docker registry protocol. Aside from technical reservations with Docker registry, it is also not an OCI-compliant system and will require a lot of work to integrate it into all of the openSUSE/SUSE tooling. So, a very insane idea I came up with is to convert OCI images to RPMs and then distribute them as simple RPMs. The idea would be to use capabilities (Provides: oci(...)) to implement the different names of images and then also the dependency graph of blobs (which would naturally be de-duplicated).

Evernote client (everpad/geeknote) for openSUSE

a record by mwilck

Evernote is a popular cloud-based note-taking application. It has the advantage of being available on many platforms, thus notes taken on an Android phone are readily available on the desktop, and vice versa. Unfortunately there's no official Evernote client for Linux. It can be used through its Web UI, but a more lightweight client would be desirable as well.

Recipe for packaging Electron apps

an idea by bear454

Electron apps are popping up everywhere, from the Atom editor to the Rocket.Chat client to Kap, a cross-platform open-source screen recorder. Electron apps are based on web technologies, and built from the ground up to be platform-agnostic. The electron framework is open source, and most of the apps are as well, but they are typically distributed (for Linux) as either a tarball or via npm.

Compare & implement a simple way to startup an open SIS

an idea by bear454

Washington state is a leader in Alternative Learning Experiences, public schools that teach in unique ways. In order to manage the requirements imposed by the State office of public education, ALEs must use some form of a Student Information System (SIS). Most ALEs in the state subscribe to a closed-source SIS: Wings; most school districts and program administrators have either no knowledge of open source SIS, or are the subject of FUD from vendors like Wings.

Jeedom House automation with SLES on RPI

a project by cbosdonnat

I recently got Jeedom working on SLES for Raspberry Pi. However, I'ld love to play more with it like controlling my window shutters. This hackweek could also be an occasion to get as much as possible of the jeedom plugins to work on SLES and openSUSE.

Packman diet 2.0

a project by scarabeus_iv

Continuing last year tweaks of packman project we should proceed in the good work and reduce the packman to provide smallest set of packages possible on Tumbleweed (later on inherited by 43.0...). One of the cool results planned is that on stock openSUSE Tumbleweed user will be able to run most of the multimedia apps and play youtube (this is already working) and also with addition of non-free repository being able to run netflix.

Finish Making a grub-ipxe package for opensuse like Ubuntu has

a project by blarson

In ubuntu, you can install grub-ipxe, which adds an ipxe entry to the grub menu. This allows you to easily pxe boot on machines that may not natively support it. You can also use it along with grub2-reboot to remotely re-image a machine. The project has been started here: https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:blarson:grub-ipxe It needs to be tested, and polished before trying to include it into opensuse.
