How can I get started developing apps for my Amahi Server?

Postby rtcoder » Tue Jun 07, 2016 6:28 pm

I am a fairly beginner programmer, but I really want to get into developing applications for my Amahi home server. How do I get started? Is there any docs for writing an application for Amahi that someone could point me to?

You can view the Developers area in the wiki.

Most who contribute to Amahi do so via packaging web apps.

If you want to develop apps for your own use, you will need to find the tools needed to install on the server. Amahi is designed to be a basic home server, so we don't have many apps packaged for programming. There are a few in the app store though.

I can just install any tools and dependencies from the server console like I would on any UNIX system, correct? I can just use dnf and install it?

Also, it says I can install any Linux apps. What is an example of a Linux app that I can install and use on the Amahi server that a general user would want to install?

How about git or svn. Most users add web applications that are not available in the Amahi app store.
