Developing

This is an open source project. Please help us!

It is written in coffeescript (nodejs) based on hangupsjs using trifl on top of electron (atom shell).

How can you help?

You can improve YakYak in many ways:

  • Core functionality
  • Interface (example: new themes only require choosing less than 20 colors)
  • Bug fixing
  • Translations (new translation only need 117 strings)

Send a pull request, start a conversation with a new issue or participate on a ongoing conversation.

Setup

Requirements:

  • Node.js (v4 or v6)
$ npm install
$ npm run gulp

Continuous build

$ npm run gulp watch

Run it

$ npm run electron app

Build Binaries for Deployment

Supported platforms: Windows (win32), Mac OS X (darwin), Linux (linux)

Suported architectures: 64-bits (x64), 32-bits (ia32)

# Building for all platforms and architectures
$ npm run deploy

# You can also build specific builds by using
#  deploy:<platform>-<architecture>
# example:
$ npm run deploy:darwin-x64

If you have fpm installed (gem install fpm), you can also build RPM and Deb packages:

$ npm run deploy:linux-x64:rpm
$ npm run deploy:linux-x64:deb

note: if you are building Windows binaries in Linux or Mac OS X, Wine (1.6 or higher) must be installed. It also requires a 32-bit Wine installation when building Windows 32-bit binary.
