User Experience Design

If you are a user experience designer, you can help FreedomBox with the following items:

Technical Design

Document: User Manual, Website and Wiki

FreedomBox needs better documentation for users and contributors. FreedomBox manual is prepared by aggregating various pages on the wiki and exporting to various formats. The manual is then used in FreedomBox Service (Plinth) and elsewhere.

If you wish to contribute to the FreedomBox wiki (and consequently the FreedomBox manual), you can create a wiki account and start editing.

For contributing to the website please start a discussion on the FreedomBox discussion forum's development category.

Quality Assurance

See the quality assurance page for a basic list of test cases to check for and information on reporting bugs.

Localization

All text visible to users of FreedomBox needs to be localized to various languages. This translation work includes:

You can contribute to the localization effort using the web-based tool at Weblate or directly to the source tree via Salsa.

If you wish to see FreedomBox available for one of your languages, please start a discussion on the FreedomBox discussion forum's development category to work with others translating for that language.

For more information, please visit the FreedomBox translators page.
