Community API Repository
This area is a collection of APIs that are not part of the official BlackBerry WebWorks SDK but may prove as a testing ground for new APIs before they are officially added to the WebWorks SDK
All APIs shared in this repository are Open Source under the Apache 2.0 License
To contribute code to this repository you must be signed up as an official contributor.
The APIs in this repository are broken out into APIs for the BlackBerry Smartphone OS and for the BlackBerry Tablet OS. When adding your API to this repository you'll need to create your own sub-directory in the appropriate platform directory.
For specific information on how to organize your code in each of these sections, please refer to the README found in both the Smartphone and Tablet directories. They will have specific information on what pieces are needed to contribute an extension for each of the platforms.
To add new APIs or make modifications to existing APIs:
- Fork the WebWorks-Community-APIs repository
- Make the changes/additions to your fork
- Send a pull request from your fork back to the WebWorks-Community-APIs repository
- If you made changes to code which you are NOT the owner, send a message via github messages to the Author(s) of the API to indicate that you have a pull request for them to review
- If you made changes to code which you own, send a message via github messages to one of the Committers listed below to have your code merged
The code for each of the Community APIs is managed by the author of the API. When a pull request comes in for a specific API the Author(s) should be notified by the pull request owner to perform a code review. When the author indicates that the pull request is ready to be merged (via a comment on the pull request) they can then send a message to a committer through github messages to have the changes merged.
If there are more than one Author for a specific API, only one Author is required to indicate that the pull request is ready. If there's more than one API affected by a pull request, at least one Author from each API must code review the pull request and indicate that it is ready to be merged before the pull request can be merged.
If the Author of the pull request is the actual owner of the API, then the Author should send a message to a committer via github messages to have their changes merged.
An Author can transfer ownership to another Author by opening up an Issue where both the original Author requests ownership to be transfered to the new Author, and the new Author agrees to take ownership of the code.
The README for the API should be updated to indicate the new Author.
Bug Reporting and Feature Requests
If you find a bug in a Community API, or have an enhancement request, simply file an Issue for the API and send a message (via github messages) to the API Author(s) to let them know that you have filed an Issue.
