Description (last modified by alsroot)


Fulltime development of Harmonic Distribution v0.3 release


Aleksey Lim


2012, April-May

Funds needed

2012, April: $300
2012, May: $500

Project description

Harmonic Distribution initiative is intended to be a technical basis for systematic approach to support Sugar Learning Platform based deployments. It is being designed and developed to accomplish the following technical tasks:

  • be a community basis project for [any number or] final product
  • covering full life cycle of Sugar based deployment, e.g., client and server software, content distribution, etc.
  • be as less maintainable as possible
  • support offline deployments


Funding request reason

The reason for asking for funding is to complete v0.3 release. The roadmap is:

This request doesn't include Sugar Network client development (which is a part of Harmonic Distribution) because it is being developed within the Hexokinase project. For the rest, v0.3 should be the first Harmonic Distribution release that is being intended to start testing in the field by people who will use final product. The functionality list was chosen to be useful in Puno pilot.

How to track the progress

How to revise the work

After being released, v0.3 should provide:

  • XO image for students to start behaving right after flashing
  • XO image for teachers, to behave as a server to serve students, right after flashing
  • Basic workflow for people who will support Puno pilot:
    • populating and revising Sugar Network content (Sugar Activities and .xol libraries)
    • provide technical support for offline schools using Sugar Network resources like Questions
  • Sneakernet synchronization (chaski) between teachers servers and the master one that is being located in the Internet
