We’ve been working hard on a variety of different things (bugs, new features etc)the last few releases and we’re pleased to announce that the current MASTER branch of Kandan now supports Ruby 2.0.0 as well as Ruby 1.9.3.

Any other versions of Ruby ARE NOT supported.

Now that we’ve released Kandan 1.1 we spent a little time focusing on getting a Hubot Adapter for Kandan up and running. After a week or so we now feel comfortable announcing the 1.0 release of the Kandan Hubot Adapter.

A lot of you aren’t going to be familiar with Hubot so here’s a brief primer.

The Kandan Team is pleased to announce the Official 1.0 release of Kandan an Open Source alternative to HipChat.

What is Kandan? Kandan is a private chat service for your company or team. You can invite colleagues to share ideas and files in a persistent group chat room or rooms.

Unlike HipChat or other alternatives, Kandan is completely Open Source and can be hosted internally or externally by your organization or by a third party.

How To Contribute Code

Whether you’ve got a bugfix, documentation update, or new feature for us, these are the steps to follow to contribute code back into the main kandan repo.

1. Get the latest code from Github

You’ll need to understand a little bit about how git and gihub work before this step (if you need an introduction guide, Github has a good one you can learn from). In simple terms, log in to github, visit the Kandan project page, and click the “fork” button to create your own copy of the repo. You will push your changes to this new repo under your own github account, and we will pull changes into the main repo from there.

Overview

Spotting and reporting genuine issues in our platform is one of the most accessible ways to contribute but, in equal measure, also the most tricky to do well. If you use this guide as reference when you raise a ticket, it will reduce the chance of delays in it reaching our development team.

Searching Issues

Tickets for outstanding issues often contain workarounds shared by our development team, or links to threads that provide discussions and solutions between our community members. Otherwise, they will tell you when a fix for a issue was created and the build you need to obtain in order to take advantage of it.
