Welcome to the Wiki for the CrisisCommunicator!!!
Table of Contents
In short, the CrisisCommunicator is an open source (using the BSD-based PeaceOSL) web-app built for distributed networks of devices, to help in disaster situations. It received the 2012 Young Innovator Fellowship from the UN International Telecom Union, and has been progressing ever since!
The code is in pre-alfa stage right now. Join the fun! We're building something beautiful. Check out the other pages on this wiki to know more about what it's supposed to do, and check the issues queue for some easy ideas on where to get started.
While we know you're itching to get your hands dirty with code, we suggest you first glance through the Use Cases to get an idea of how/when/why the application is going to be used.
You should definitely look at Saving,-Storing,-Sending-Messages, to see the different types of messages, and forms that need to be created.
Finally, take a look at INSTALL.md https://github.com/WiseEarthTechnology/CrisisCommunicator/blob/master/webapp/INSTALL.md for step-by-step instructions to set up your own development environment. It's super-easy!
We prefer that you fork the repository, so that we can merge a pull request once the challenge is over. However, we leave it up to whatever method you feel comfortable.
$ git clone https://github.com/WiseEarthTechnology/CrisisCommunicator-Challenge.git
Note that whatever code you write is subject to the Peaceful-OSL license in the repo.
- Check out the Saving,-Storing,-Sending-Messages to understand how the messages are expected to be formatted.
- Know what the app should support
