edit  The GRAMPS Developers Portal
Welcome to the Gramps Developers Portal! This area is reserved for people helping with the development of the Gramps program.

Gramps is programmed in the language Python.

If you are an adventurous user, have some technical experience, or have a programming background, you might like to try Getting started with Gramps Trunk.

You might want to start with obtaining the source code or have a look at Getting started with Gramps development. Once you have the code, writing a report or a quick report is a great way to learn to navigate through the codebase; see also Addons development. After getting familiar with Gramps, you might want to help work on a proposal, or make a proposal yourself you want to spend time on. Both can be done at the Proposals Portal, in collaboration with the bug/feature tracker.

edit  Report System
A good way to learn the Gramps codebase is by writing a small report.

Reports are plugins that can be distributed separately as unofficial plugins; see Addons development.

Documentation for writing reports can be found in the Database API and Report API. There is also a tutorial and a technical description of report generation.
edit  Specifications
This is a call to make report and tool specifications of the existing reports and tools in Gramps.
