Looking for Coders or Testers for an Open Source File Organizer

Discussion in 'Python' started by zainul franciscus, Jun 14, 2011.

  1. I started an open source file organizer called Miranda. Miranda is
    inspired by Belvedere written by Adam Pash of Lifehacker (http://
    lifehacker.com/341950/belvedere-automates-your-self+cleaning-pc). I
    know you guys must be thinking "Hmm, Miranda, isn't that an IM
    application ?"; Yep I hear you, I'll change the name once I get a good
    name. I am open for any suggestions.

    Miranda is written in Python, meant for Ubuntu, but hopefully it can
    be tested for every Linux Flavour. I have nothing much to offer in
    return for the software,but I will acknowledge your contribution in
    the software, and give credit to anyone helping when I feature Miranda
    in How-To Geek : http://www.howtogeek.com/

    I am a beginner in python, so the code may look a bit messy, and I am
    open to rewrite the code if I can get a mentor whom I can pair with
    for coding the application. I do have 7+ years of programming, web
    development, database, desktop, you name it. So I am not totally blind
    of programming, but it will be great to get an experienced python
    programmer who has the passion for coding, and the patience to mentor
    a beginner python.

    The chief geek has given his nod of approval to publish Miranda
    through how-to geek, and I can pitch any of your software to him, and
    write an article about it - provided that the chief geek approve the

    Actually I was thinking "isn't that a functional programming language?"

  3. Where is this code hosted? I'd be more than happy to (hopefully) lend
    a hand wherever I can. I'm not that savvy (yet) with Python, but I'm
    knowledgeable with a lot of computer science algorithms and such for
    both sorting and searching, which I assume will help greatly!

  6. Or 'Philtre'. A philtre is a very useful thing to have around a
    house... just ask Aline Sangazure.

    I'd like to join this project, as a tester.

    Sounds good, I shall take a look at it when I get home from work. (The
    Google Docs domain is blocked here. Curses!)

    Just as a tip: on the project's homepage, just write about your
    project and what it's features are. Don't write in the first person.
    This isn't about you, it's about the project. O=)

  14. Thank you for the interest, I have added you as one of the committer.
    Let me know if you have any problem with the application, just IM me
    at gtalk, or email me. I am located in Wellington, New Zealand, so
    there might be some lag in our communication. I shall try to answer
    any of your questions as prompt as possible =)
