We're Crowdfunding on IndieGoGo Back Us

Be a Part of Something Bigger

Everything that we make is 100% open source and developed collaboratively by people from all over the world. Even if you're not a programmer, you can get involved and make a difference.


With your help, we've been able to grow from a small group of passionate volunteers into a tiny company. Every little bit of help is one step closer to hiring another full-time developer.


We’re currently crowdfunding AppCenter, the pay-what-you-want app store, on Indiegogo. By backing us there, you'll be helping us pay for our remote team to get together in person with developers from our community for a week long sprint in Denver, Colorado.

BountySource suunab annetused ning rahastamised otse arendajatele, kes on tarkvarale veaparandusi teostanud või uusi funktsioone loonud. Sul on võimalik kindlale probleemile määrata just nii suur summa, kui sa ise tahad ning arendaja, kes selle probleemi lahendab, teenib sinu annetatud summa. Samuti on sul võimalik rahastada kindla rakenduste arengut või toetada üldiselt, tehes määratud tellimuse, mille saad iga hetk tühistada. Loe lähemalt.


elementary OS on loodud ja kasutatud inimeste poolt üle terve maailma; aita meil elamusi ka teistega jagada, tõlkides seda erinevatesse keeltesse.

elementary OS tõlkimine toimub Launchpad'is avatud ning koostööd toetava tööriistaga Rosetta. Loe lähemalt.

Question & Answer

StackExchange is a Q&A website built around finding the best answers to common questions. Anyone can create an account to start asking and answering.


elementary provides basic documentation for both users and developers. All of our documentation is written in Markdown and hosted on GitHub, so submitting a change or a new section is a piece of cake.


Our website is built using HTML, CSS, PHP, and JavaScript. We're always looking for people experienced in those areas who would like to contribute and make it even better.

Töölaua keskkond

Our desktop environment and all its apps are built using Vala, GTK+, Granite, and a number of other open libraries. We host our desktop code on Launchpad.net, a free service for open source projects. If you've never developed for elementary OS before, we recommend you check out our Getting Started guide. Loe lähemalt.


Every project begins with an idea. Our Design Team takes these and turns them into clear blueprints and bug reports. We break up design into two main components:

Visuaalne disain

We're always open to new ideas for elementary OS's visual design. Get started by sharing mockups with meie Google+ kogukonnaga.

Interaction Design

We use a system on Launchpad called Blueprints to create detailed explanations of new features and changes to the user interface.
