Developing for Observium
By contributing code you are making a donation and forfeit all copyright to the project leader, Adam Armstrong. We will not commit personal copyrights into our codebase.
Observium is currently licensed under a modified QPL-1.0 license. We reserve the right to change the license for all or part of the code at any time.
What can to be done?
- We need more/better documentation
- User levels need to be worked out somewhat bit more
- Code, snmp, SQL optimization
- New device support!
- Security audit (especially user access levels)
- Conversion of old code to new standards
- Gotchas and possible brokenness is indicated by FIXME comments in the code which probably need to be looked at
- There are reported bugs that may need fixing, and some feature requests on the bugtracker as well.
Where to start
- Check the documentation below
- Check with the developers on the mailing list or in the IRC channel what you want to do, to avoid duplicating or doing unnecessary work
There is a lot of code of different ages in Observium, which has evolved through a number of different code stages. Please check with the developers first before taking something as a base to start from, as it may no longer be the preferred way of doing things!
