Looking for developers to take over Cardapio

Written for Cardapio by Thiago Teixeira on 2013-03-16

You probably noticed it has been a while since the latest Cardapio update. It has been-- wow, almost two years!

What happened?! you ask.

Well, what happened was that these past years the Cardapio team members got progressively busier with other projects, new jobs, and real life in general, until we simply had no time to devote to even the smallest bugs.

So we are now looking for developers who are interested in taking over Cardapio and pushing it to the next level. What do you say? Do you have what it takes?


Some ideas:

- Take advantage of the current XFCE and LXDE momentum, and make Cardapio integrate well with those environments. This could be huge!

- Work with the Pinguy OS guys, who have set Cardapio as their default menu, to integrate it more deeply into their system.

- Make Cardapio work as an Ubuntu HUD client! This way you could take the HUD to other DEs, such as Gnome, KDE, XFCE, LXDE, and so on. I would love to see this happen! Please make it so.

- Port Cardapio to other widget toolkits. Imagine Cardapio running *inside* Gnome Shell, or Cardapio on Ubuntu phones.

...and so much more!


Any takers?

Either way, I think I speak for the whole team when I say thanks for your support over the years! Without your word-of-mouth, your feature requests, your bug reports, and -- yes -- even the occasional nasty attacks, Cardapio would never have gone past the 10000 users mark. (Which we did, according to Launchpad PPA stats. I still can't believe it.)

So keep on being vocal and awesome, Linux community. We'll be seeing each other!
