If you're wondering how could you help, fear not, there are plenty of ways 😄

Some of them are:

Roadmap

Currently qTox is under a feature freeze to clean up our codebase and tools. During this time we want to prepare qTox for upcoming new features of toxcore.

The next steps are:

  • move all toxcore abstractions into their own subproject
  • write basic tests for this Core
  • format the code base
  • rework our TravisCI setup for faster PR checks
  • rethink our Issue tracker

The current state is tracked in the Code cleanup project.

Screenshots

Note: The screenshots may not always be up to date, but they should give a good idea of the general look and features.
