Welcome to the Gramps Developers Portal! This area is for people interested in helping with the development of the Gramps program.

Gramps is programmed in the Python language.

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

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 Report writing tutorial and a technical description of report generation.
