Hi Sumana, I'm a developer and a Wikipedian (from en.wiki). I want to work with WikipediaMobile but instead using PhoneGap I'm more into conventional Eclipse IDE. So, where can I get code?

Hi, please have a look at meta:Mobile_Projects/Contribute. There you can find links to the mobile apps source code, open bugs and other interesting information.

PhoneGap and Eclipse are orthogonal - see e.g. Getting started with PhoneGap in Eclipse for Android. As long as you are familiar with Javascript you are good to go.

The next steps for getting involved is joining #wikimedia-mobileconnect IRC channel and mobile-l mailing list. There you can find the other mobile developers and get further advice from them.

Thanks Qgil. I appreciate your taking the time to help. However, I figured it out by myself but other links you have provided are really helping. I guess I have to revise JavaScript as I'm mainly a Java programmer. I'm also a white box tester (usually work with JUNIT), how can I get involved?

The only MediaWiki corners I'm aware of where Java is used are:

  • the Wikipedia app for Nokia Series40 (but the development is quite outsourced and even if open I wonder how easy is for external contributors to get in).
  • the Lucene search library. fwiw we have an open full time position related to this. Interested? :) Otherwise feel free forwarding to your colleagues.
