Privacy/security-oriented software recommendations (mirrored from GitLab)
Welcome to the PRISM Break project. Here's a quick overview of the code. JSON containing all of the project data is filtered through LiveScript and then compiled to plain HTML with Jade templates. Stylesheets are managed with Stylus, a CSS preprocessor.
The prism-break build process relies on several npm packages. Make sure to have node.js installed on your system if you want to contribute to the code.
If you'd like to translate the project to your favorite language, there's no need to install node.js or even download the code. Just add translated data to the appropriate JSON files on GitHub and submit a Pull Request - if anything's missing, the English version will be used instead. That being said, setting up the project locally will allow you to run
LANGis a language code) to get a nice list of things for you to translate.
Join us at #prism-break on Freenode! Feel free to ask any questions.
PRISM Break follows the GNU/FSF definition of Free Software and prefers software licensed under a compatible license but may allow other OSI reviewed licenses. The only exception is when free software offers no viable alternative to proprietary software. "Web Search" is the only category with this exception currently.
PRISM Break strives to promote the best open source applications. Ease of use, stability, and performance matter. This is the first time many people are looking to leave their proprietary walled gardens. Let's make it a good experience for them. If you're writing a privacy-minded FOSS app, please finish it before asking PRISM Break to promote it.
This can vary case-to-case, but generally here are the attributes we look for:
Offers security advantages that other projects don't
If it has been rejected, you'll learn why. If the issue hasn't been addressed, add a comment as to why it deserves inclusion. If the software has been improved significantly since the initial rejection, feel free to suggest it again.
I will respond to them quicker and they will get an answer faster.
Add the project you wish to get listed.
vi ./source/db/en-projects.json # edit or add a project
cp project.png ./source/assets/images/logos/medium/ # put 60x60 PNG here
Make sure your edits do not break the site by building the English version of PRISM Break. Open the pages to make sure it all works.
make test # builds ./public/en for preview purposes
You edited the
en-projects.jsonfile earlier. This only creates a project description for the English version of PRISM Break. Please copy the project description to all the other language files, so translators work on it more easily.
# Copying your edits to *-projects.json ./source/db/*-projects.json
At this point, feel free to commit the changes and submit a pull request. Steps #4 and #5 are only necessary if you want to build your own copy of the site.
make # get a drink, it'll take a while build all 27 languages
make reset # making a drastic change? run this instead of
make# this will vaporize /public before running
make serve # starts HTTP server on http://127.0.0.1:8080
