How can I contribute?

There are several ways in which you can contribute to the NeoOffice project.

NeoOffice

End User

  • Donate money - Currently, there are only TWO developers programming NeoOffice. Both contribute as they are able—in their free time and as long as their finances permit. To help pay for the out-of-pocket costs associated with developing and supporting NeoOffice (bandwidth!) so they can focus on improving NeoOffice, you are invited to make a donation via the NeoOffice Donations page.
  • Report bugs - If you notice a bug, report it so the developers can fix it!
    • If you find yourself good at bug reporting and have some extra time, please help reproduce bugs reported by others and ensure that a bug report is clear and complete so that the developers can fix it.
  • Write documentation - Help update and maintain this wiki so new users will always have up-to-date information (request account).
  • Translate NeoOffice-related websites -
  • Help answer user questions in the NeoOffice Support forum on Trinity.
  • Spread the word - If you like NeoOffice, spread the word (and help maintain our press and media links and listings).
  • There have also been some discussions on starting a NeoOffice user group to support NeoOffice and a foundation to further the development of NeoOffice and open-source software on the Mac generally. If you have ideas or experience regarding either of these topics, check out respective forum threads on Trinity: User group Foundation.
  • See this list of things to do for more ideas.

Software Developer

  • This is an open-source project, so if you want to help, contact Patrick Luby or Ed Peterlin at the Trinity forums. Explain your area of expertise and we can go from there.
  • Ed has written up a number of specifications for small projects that might be good starting points for a beginning NeoOffice developer. (Note that the native filepicker and Address Book integration projects have been completed.)

NeoLight

NeoLight (NeoOffice Spotlight Importer) is in maintenance mode. It works and has been included in NeoOffice since 2005.

Read the NeoLight documentation or browse the source.

NeoPeek

NeoPeek is the NeoOffice Quick Look plug-in. It has shipped with NeoOffice since 2007.

NeoOffice/C

The NeoOffice/C project is no longer under active development so that all efforts can be focused on the continued improvement of NeoOffice.
