This is the development branch of Sweeper for the upcoming V0.4 release.
Some of the jazzy new features you can expect from this upcoming release are:
- Tag-based navigation of content
- Content grouping
If you are a developer interested in contributing to Sweeper then there are a few things to note before you jump in and start coding. First be sure to read this overview - http://goo.gl/mlPff
The master branch will always be the latest stable release of the app so unless you like living life dangerously this is the best place to start:
$ git clone git://github.com/ushahidi/Sweeper.git
With the app code checked out you still need to perform the following steps before you can start local development:
$ cd Sweeper $ git submodule init $ git submodule update
Why do we do this? Well, Sweeper is just one of many applications that run on the Swiftriver core framework. To allow for this, the framework has its own repository and is brought into this project using the git-submodule facility.
Once you have done this, you will have all the code required to run and change Sweeper!
- Apache 2.x or greater
- PHP 5.3 or higher
- PHP Pear Extensions
- MySQL 4.0 or higher
