We will be having a meeting on our IRC channel ( #axr
) on Sunday, 7th October at 19:00Z.
Here's a summary of the topics that will be discussed:
- How to get more contributors for the prototype
In the web design industry it is quite easy to find people who are interested in a project such as ours, but to contribute to the prototype, C++ programming skills are needed, which are harder to find. We'll discuss specific steps we can take to improve the odds that knowledgeable developers join our case.
Since our recent switch to Qt, which includes classes to add ECMAScript to Qt based software (it uses V8 internally), we are now in a way better position to add such capability to our prototype. This is one of the biggest things to come in our next few releases, so we will discuss everything around how best to do it, and how to integrate it with the rest of the language (the DOM api, MVC patterns, etc).
- Other uses of the AXR platform (library for mobile UI's?)
The primary goal of the AXR Project is to be a tool for creating web sites and applications, but the need for creating graphical UIs in software is not restricted to the web platform. The AXR libray could be a very useful tool for using HSS for creating UIs of native applications. Android and iOS could be an awesome target for this kind of use.
- User interaction and involvement
We'll discuss ideas and proposals for enhancements on our website, that will increase the feedback and involvement of the people that stumble upon our project.
- Ideas for improving our PR
We need to expand the social awareness of our project, to pick up a bit more momentum and to raise the discussion. We'll brainstorm and debate ideas for how we can improve in this area as a community.
