PINNED: Contributing to the Future of BeerSmith

(1/4) > >>

BeerSmith:
I know there are many other programmers and designers out there who (like me) enjoy the hobby and would like to contribute in some small way.

While I can't offer much in the way of compensation, I'm happy to highlight the contributions of others and offer to host your work for the good of the larger group.

Examples:
- Recipes (we can always use more!)
- Additional data (manufacturer specific grain listings, missing ingredients, local style guides, equipment setups, etc...)
- Report templates
- Beta testing
- BeerXML style sheets, DTD, and converters to convert other beer program files to BeerSmith (yes it is possible!)

Please contact me before you start as I would like to deconflict any ongoing efforts, and also provide some broad guidelines (for example data naming conventions) to help you in your efforts.

Whatever you contribute will be placed in the public domain for free download from our web site and possibly included in future versions of BeerSmith (if appropriate).

 In the case of exceptional contributions, I may be able to donate a free copy of BeerSmith or a T-shirt to the cause!

Thanks!
Brad

bonjour:
Brad,

Is anyone working on Briess Malts?

Fred

BeerSmith:
Fred,
 Not that I know of, but I did use many of the Briess profiles to build the original "generic" malt database, so it would be pretty easy to use the generic one as a starting point.

 Let me know if you are interested via email - I can provide some naming guidelines and links.

Cheers!
Brad

I'm willing to help out.  I'm a programmer so I can handle anything you need.

I noticed a request to update the BA Beer Style guide.  Has that been handled yet?

BeerSmith:
Hi,
  Thanks for the offer - if you wish to enter the BA style guide, that would be a great contribution!  BeerSmith already supports multiple style guides, so it would just be a matter of entering the new one.

  Let me know or drop me an email.

Cheers!
Brad
