News about Zentyal for developers
« on: December 29, 2011, 10:06:33 am »
Hi potential Zentyal developers!

Lately many Zentyal users have expressed their interest in developing their own Zentyal modules and as you may have already noticed, last week we published an updated version of the Zentyal module development tutorial. It is now located in our community wiki, so everybody can contribute to improving it. Here is the link to the index:

Please let us know if you have any feedback or questions! Also, an encouraging word for those interested in development: making a Zentyal module is now easier than ever! This is because we have got rid of autotools for building the packages, which caused a lot of mistakes specially among people not familiar with them. Instead, we have now our own zbuildtools package which does all the magic and the developer just needs to put the files in place.

There is also documentation about some tools shipped with Zentyal that may be useful for developers at:

And we're happy to tell you about one last change in Zentyal development: we have migrated to GIT! We are already enjoying the advantages it offers over the previous Subversion repository and we hope this change will be positive for everybody. You can find the new instructions on how to get the Zentyal code at:
