I would love to join the Joplin Community because i am convinced within myself that this is the right project to contribute to for GSoC, i specifically want to contribute to the DESKTOP VERSION OF JOPLIN. i have scanned through the list of ideas and i particularly like the “OCR support” idea.
I am presently trying to build the electron project on my Windows 10 OS and the instructions on the documentation is not quite clear, but should in case i run into any error, i will reach out. cheers.
Welcome. The build instructions in the Readme are definitely a bit obtuse but if you open the BUILD.md file in Joplin’s root directory, you should be good to go. I would highly recommend checking out the Chocolatey package manager for Windows if you are missing any software required to build Joplin.
Hi @Runo-saduwa, welcome here, and thanks for your interest in the project!
We try to make the doc as easy to use as possible but if something is not clear, feel free to let us know what.
Note that Windows is not always the easiest development environment to work with. In general, for Joplin, I’d recommend to only use a Command terminal running as administrator as this is where you’ll get the best performance and less errors. Don’t use WSL for building or running the app unless you really know what you’re doing.
