Forum Nokia Projects - online project hosting

Published by Rafe Blandford at 20:02 UTC, July 12th 2010

Forum Nokia recently took the covers of Forum Nokia Projects (projects.forum.nokia.com), a free service providing online project hosting for collaborative software development, documentation, or any other project. The service is built on top of the open source Trac software and is fully integrated with Forum Nokia. The service includes the usual tools such as source-code browser, wiki, forums, tickets and support for three version control systems (SVN, Git, and Mercurial).

The service, which is currently in beta, is similar to those provided elsewhere (e.g. Google Code, SourceForge and Unfuddle), but there is a clear visibility advantage to hosting a project at Forum Nokia, especially if your project is mobile related or you are looking for other people to get involved. Forum Nokia is one of the biggest mobile developer portals on the web, with millions of registered users.

As described by Forum Nokia:

Forum Nokia Projects is the perfect place for you to meet other users who are interested in working on new and exciting things for mobile. If you have a brilliant new idea, and some time and energy to spare, this is the perfect place for you.

Forum Nokia are also providing a comprehensive set of tools, which should meet the requirements of most projects:

Without structure, no project can survive, so we are relying on what is recognised as one of the best project management tools available: Trac.

We have enabled all of the basic features that you would expect: Wiki, tickets/issues, milestones, and the source-code browser. In addition, we have installed a few of the best plugins we could find, including: forums; source-code management support for Subversion (SVN), Git, and Mercurial; a WebDAV server; and more.

There are already more than a hundred projects hosted on the service including QtQuickPlayground (a showcase for QML and Qt Quick), Xfolite (J2ME implementation of XForms 1.1), Cut the Angle (multi-touch Flash Lite 4 game). Nokia are also using the service to host a number of their own projects including Nokia Mobile Web Templates and GuaranaUI (jQuery-based set of customizable UI elements, application frameworks, and templates for WRT).
