About Kopete

Kopete is an Instant Messaging Client that is modular and has plugins. It requires KDE Plasma. Kopete has a huge code base with lots of legacy code and reflects the hard work of many developers since many years. Kopete currently supports 9 different messaging services and has 15+ plugins.

About the Project

Title : Autotests and improving protocol support for Kopete

Kopete is now ported to KF5. This project is about adding auto tests to Kopete. In this auto-tests for protocols and plugins will need to be written. This project also includes the improvement of support for protocols in Kopete.

Work report

I have done auto-tests for following modules -

  • libkopete
  • kopete
  • plugin
  • protocol

Porting of the kopete with the bug fixes was also done during this GSoC Period. Also it is documented how to use the tests suite while development of kopete.

What I did : Created autotests for Kopete and worked on porting the remaining KDE4 part to KF5.

How will it help: It will help in easier maintanance of Kopete by the community members and by me.

What Next: I will complete the test suite and will also work on the issues discussed with mentor so the Kopete based completely on KF5 be released. I am also thinking of keeping some issues and tasks (on phabricator) that will get some interest of new developers and will help them get indulged with the project.
