List of ideas for Google Summer of Code 2019. Our development efforts aim towards the release of phpMyAdmin 5.0.
For details about participating in the Summer of Code for the phpMyAdmin project, please refer to our GSoC 2019 applicant guide.
Possible mentors are listed for each idea; however, mentors generally do not wish to help a student drafting his proposal. You can use the phpmyadmin-devel mailing list to ask specific questions about these ideas.
For a general reference about Refactoring, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refactoring.
On this page:
- Convert the UI to Bootstrap
- Error reporting server
- Introduce modern JS features and tools to phpMyAdmin codebase
- General improvements
- Refactoring and improving Designer
- Your idea
Convert the UI to Bootstrap
phpMyAdmin has recently added Bootstrap 4 support. The goal of this project is to convert the existing user interface to the Bootstrap format, not to create a theme with Bootstrap style.
For each step of your project, it should be possible to merge it to the master branch, so take this into consideration when planning.
The buttons have already been converted to Bootstrap, see #14792.
Possible mentors: Maurício Meneghini Fauth
Error reporting server
phpMyAdmin's error reporting server is a service which collects failures happening on the phpMyAdmin installations all around the world. It's implemented in CakePHP and is serving us already few years.
However the server would need quite some improvements (see the issue tracker), for example:
- Improved stats page
- Mass operations on incidents and notifications
- Public read only interface
- Persistent settings
See its code at https://github.com/phpmyadmin/error-reporting-server/
Requirements: PHP and MySQL knowledge, CakePHP experience welcome.
Introduce modern JS features and tools to phpMyAdmin codebase
If you feel that your proposal timeline won't allow time for the whole codebase to be revamped, we expect you to specify handling the part-upgrades, without breaking the usability completely.
Experience with the following is welcome (but not required):
- Webpack (or any other bundler)
Possible mentors: Deven Bansod
There are many small enhancements in the bug tracker which are too small to make a single project, but they can be grouped together to make a suitable GSoC project.
Possible mentors: Saksham Gupta
Refactoring and improving Designer
None of above did attract you? Feel free to come up with your own idea, you can take inspiration from the enhancement requests: https://github.com/phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin/issues?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Aissue+label%3Aenhancement
Please note that the project is supposed to take the whole summer, so you will most likely have to combine several enhancement requests to get a big enough project.
