Opencaching.de Code Repository
Opencaching.de is a major Geocaching website in Germany. This repository contains the website's code, including all third-party libraries needed to run it. It is one of two major Opencaching code forks; the other one is Opencaching.pl. Feel free to use it under the provided license terms for setting up your own open and free Geocaching listing service! The code can easily be translated to other languages.
Your contributions to this project are welcome - you may contact the team in the Opencaching.de forum if you like to join us. Development is usually done on a VirtualBox Linux system that you can run on your Linux, Windows or Mac workstation, but you may also try to set up the code directly on your Linux machine. Otherwise you can use our new vagrant box. You get the needed link from a Team Member in Opencaching.de forum.
This repo contains three branches:
- the stable branch with current Opencaching.de production code
- the master branch, basis of all development, which contains code that will be released with the next site update
- the next branch with experimental features to be tested.
The next branch is now and then resetted to master state and rebuilt from there, so do not derive any working-branches from it. Use master instead.
Major OC.de site updates are version-tagged. See the changelog for a detailed list.
Before you start writing OC code, please contact the developer team in the forum and verify if someone is ready to review and release your contributions.
