    Hi! I'm here because I want to contribute to Om :)

    hi @robertoissc ,
    awesome! :)
    how would you like to contribute? there's lots to do, from conducting various types of research to translation to development to spreading the word
    I'm in the middle of finals at my university right now, so I might be slow to answer sometime (like I have been up till now)

    right now, as the next step, I'd like to make the app as accessible to the world as possible
    I'd like to make a research-backed script for mindfulness meditation and let volunteers over the world translate it and record it

    would you like to help me do the research to come up with a quality script? do you have any experience with guiding meditations?

    Hi! I found Om on f-droid and I was hoping I could contribute.
    I was thinking it would be nice to allow configurable meditation times.

    Hi,
    Awesome! Do you mean guided or unguided meditations?
    How would you like to contribute? Are you a developer?

    @arnlo_gitlab
    I was thinking the unguided meditations
    I'm a dev but I haven't done much Java

    :) it's Kotlin, so you'd be learning something new either way

    heh
    I saw gradle and I just assumed

    Kotlin has a relatively low learning curve and has really nice safety precautions built into its foundation—like null safety and static typing

    sweet
    any advice on getting the dev env set up? i'm going to install android studio and i'm hoping it will Just Work :tm:
    Mirek Mazel
    @12people

    I think it will just work

    the first time you compile, it will probably ask you to download a few things (like the emulator and dev tools), but everything should be automatic

    the Android platform is a bit complicated, so that might take you a bit longer to learn
    if you ever have questions, message me in the development room, I'll be glad to help

    @arnlo_gitlab I just created an issue for this in GitLab, to track progress: https://gitlab.com/enjoyingfoss/om/issues/7
    you're welcome to assign yourself
    if you don't, at least it will be on the to do list :)

    i'm hesitant to jump on it officially until i can figure out how to build the app lol

    @12people

    hi! any hint about building / required API levels?
    I just cloned and run gradle built but it failed with "Error: android:windowLightStatusBar requires API level 23 (current min is 15) [NewApi]" (and a couple more)
    (I'm not proficient android dev so will most likely require some digging in)

    @.wojtek_gitlab hi :)
    hm... I'll take a quick look at it
