What is Semester of Code?
The Semester of Code (SoC) is an initiative of the European VALS project, which allows students of degrees of computer science addressing real business problems raised by companies and OSS Foundations, and get rewards from resolving them reflecting it in their formal education.There are three main stakeholders in this project:How VALS Semester of Code Works
[*] Propose a project for approval by a mentoring open source organisation
[*] Code the semester away
[*] Achieve Ultimate Glory ...and gain academic credithttp://vps.semesterofcode.com/projects/browseWebinterface for a decentralized social network
Webinterface for a decentralized social network
Motivation: offer similar features as facebook or diaspora. But don't expose any private data to a server operator. Retroshare is decentralized and does not need servers.
Desired Outcome: a webinterface for a social network. Create a post, display comments, allow to make comments or recommend posts to others. A profile page with a profile picture. Later we want a user interface to group persons into circles to allow access retrictions. The task could be extended to cover all Retroshare features. These are chat, croup chat, mail, forums and channels. We could also add long wanted features like photo albums. The interface should work with touch screens.
Communication with the Retroshare core will happen with JSON encoded messages over http or Websockets. This interface is under construction and should be available until December.

This project is right for you, if you don't fear design+layout and if you like a visible outcome of the project.

In August 2014 the development of a new webinterface for Retroshare started. This document describes the previous efforts to make a webinterface for Retroshare and how the fourth webinterface should work. At the end the setup of the development environment is shown. This document should give new developers enough information to help with this project.

**JSON over http API**
For the new Retroshare Webinterface 4 it was suggested to provide a JSON over http interface. This document describes the ideas behind this interface and serves a reference manual with simple examples. It should anyone with basic programming skills give the knowledge to use this interface.
