Dutch OSS Project looking for developers!
« on: October 12, 2018, 08:51:12 am »
Very recently a new Open Source Software (OSS) project has been started in the Netherlands to develop the Dutch beer brewing software BrouwHulp further. The creator of the program is too busy to maintain the software so decided to release it to the community. The sources will be available shortly. We are in the process of creating a project to bring development further.

We are looking for bright and cheerful Dutch-speaking software engineers with experience with Lazarus/Pascal. The software is in Dutch, but we might plan an English version later.

It is totally OK if you never brewed your own beer. Good chance you will get interested and develop a new hobby :).

Any help is greatly appreciated!

If I check out the sources somewhere? I'd like to take a look.

An English version would be very interesting. Is the plan to put the current version on github?

Sources are not available yet but will be in the next week. Github: https://github.com/bliekp/BrouwHulp

An English version is not our primary focus at this point but might be in the future. I have no idea if the code is prepared for internationalization or if this would mean a lot of (re)work.

Our sources are now online! We also changed the name of the project, so the new URL is: https://github.com/bliekp/BrewBuddy

We are having great difficulties succesfully compiling the sources. None of the current people involved have experience with Lazarus. Some have experience with Delphi but that doesn't seem to help much.. Any help greatly appreciated!

Which branch do we work with?
As I can see, there are 2 branches excluding master all containing the same codes?

I also suggest you create an English README, it will attract more developers in my own view.

Thanks,

I got it now.

To compile it i needed to install 2 packages. laz_synapse and expandpanel. I found them on:
https://github.com/roth-a/expandpanels
http://www.ararat.cz/synapse/doku.php/download

I set the target Os to win64 and i compiles but does  not run. Perhaps it must run on win32. Everything else seems to be working.
There are a lot of warnings when you compile it.
