The FreeGuide development team are open to contributions from anyone and we expect to accept most patches we receive, except ones that differ radically from our aim of creating a nice, simple TV guide.
FreeGuide itself is written entirely in Java (1.4 or higher required), but it uses the XMLTV tools (XMLTV is a separate project) which are written in Perl.
At the moment you need Sun's Java Development Kit. We want to change this so FreeGuide can work on an all Free Software platform. If you are interested in helping out, please get in touch - we will be keen to help.
The releases are built using Apache's Ant build tool. You can use the AntFarm plugin in JEdit, or Eclipse, or the command line, but you will need ant.
