Welcome to the GRAMPS for Windows project.
This project is for the creation of windows installation solutions for GRAMPS, an open source software project for genealogy. Despite recent advances there is still a lack of clean installation solutions for windows users. Developers which wished to support the windows community had to release their solutions on their own sites with no coordination. This project hopes to resolve these issues. Hopefully the development pace will be rapid with quick changes and test releases.
This project is not a fork of GRAMPS. Our only focus is on the windows solutions for GRAMPS. Something the main developers have been open to and encouraged but not motivated to do on their own. It is hoped that after we create solid installers with solid best practices for building and installing that we can merge these solutions into the main GRAMPS code and release cycle.
There are four main solutions we hope to solve for GRAMPS windows users.
- Traditional binary installation
- This solution
- Portable installation
- use installer
- PortableApps installation
- Source code installation
- use svn
If you would like to get involved in development please send a project admin a tell and they will add you to the developers list.
