The Best Open Source Email & Collaboration Software
Some weeks ago, we have released the Zarafa WebApp 1.0. It was a very cool experience to work with 15 WebApp co-Zarafians on feedback from many people in the ecosystem. I would like to share some thoughts with you about plug-ins.
We are looking forward to leverage the widget options in this framework because it will speed up the development of plugins. Then, a plug-in can be made 5 to 10 times faster compared to the old framework.
Recently I have had numerous contacts with developers who want to build VoIP integrations, social media integrations and other 3rd party integrations. To boost this enthusiasm, we will organize several coding sessions in the upcoming months.
At the same time, the Zarafa development team is working on an update of the WebApp developer guide. This guide will contain much more coding examples to let people hook in their code to the WebApp.
So, keep track of our WebApp project for new releases! Although we have released WebApp 1.0, which is included in ZCP 7.0 packages, we will release a new version every 2 weeks on the WebApp project site. The latest version can be checked out on git.zarafa.com.
In fact, we have now reached the point we have been aiming at when we started the WebApp project. We sincerely hope that you will help us to motivate people with some developer knowledge in your environment to contribute with new plug-ins to the enrichment of our WebApp.
