Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

http://www.suntechgroup.com/IT/xclass.html

Coming to the point, we want inkscape to be customized and added to our software XCLASS as a plugin. We want to customize in such a way that our logo is added to inkscape and create different lessons for all section of students. Please quote the price for customizing the software according to our needs from your end.

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Pavi

Dear Aditya,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Is there any procedure to take it up forward? Like I would like to know point of contact for such queries on customizing or is it open for hundreds of developers and anyone would offer the quote and I chose the best one? Is there a team who manages and collect the status?

Also please give me any point of contact of the board of developers. I am also aware of the inkscape license and we just want a simplified version of inkscape to be added to our software as a plugin. We are looking to modify the content with SunTech's logo and preferences. We want to introduce inkscape to primary schools from level1 to high school in different stages so that students develop their creativity as they move to higher classes. Our XCLASS software is also developed using C++.  Since we don’t have enough bandwidth from our developers to customize inkscape, we are looking forward to the help of your developers since they know about the source code inside out, it could be easier for them too and we can finish off the project sooner.

 

Eager to hear back from you.

Hey Pavithra,

Here is the liscense of Inkscape which you can refer in additional to feedback by the other developers

https://inkscape.org/en/about/license/

Please verify your use-case with other people in the community to avoid any legal issues, also I think the community will be happy if you could contribute to the project.

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Hi. Currently all our developers are engaged in bug fixes, features, upgrades, etc. to Inkscape for our next major release. If you do not get a response here, it's probably because there is either no interest, or our developers do not have enough time to work with/for your company.

One note: Before you undertake modifications to Inkscape, please make sure that you comply with the license if Inkscape, and the way in which you want to use it is compatible with the software license.
This is very important, because you are legally obligated to comply with all terms of the GPL in order to use Inkscape as part of you program.

For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see

Thanks for your interest in Inkscape.

Actually the original was junked by gmail for me.

Dear Pavi,

I think the idea of an Inkscape for Kids is a really good idea. I would
like to invite Sun Tech Group to consider developing such a
modification in the public under a generic name without specific
branding (which can be added in later for your own distribution). This
I suggest because it would involve the greatest reduction in cost for
maintaining such a fork for your business.

This is a project that we could help you develop in the right way. Let
us know in reply.

In addition to compliance to the GPL (https://inkscape.org/en/about/lic
ense/), you must also comply with the Inkscape trademark usage policy (
https://inkscape.org/en/about/branding/) in whatever production you end
up doing. If you have any issues, let us know as soon as possible any
questions or concerns and we can clarify the rules.

Good luck!

Best Regards, Martin Owens

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Brynn
On the other hand, I was just thinking.  As a community, I think we are aware
that Inkscape is probably lacking in instructional material - especially from
the beginner level on up.

If SunTech is offering to pay us to create such instructional material, and as
long as we would be free to make it available to all Inkscape users as well,
maybe it would be worth considering the offer?

All best,
brynn

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Pavi
In reply to this post by doctormo
Dear Martin,

Thank you for your interest in our project. I am glad that you liked the idea.
We would like to know team size, duration, point of contact, status and so many other factors.

Also with respect to license and branding, our software XCLASS and DLL is widely used in educational institutions across the world.
We would like to add inkscape(plugin) as a new feature and enhance our software.
This would require modification as removing the inkscape logo and adding suntech logo to the software, although the UI is fine we would like to simplify as it would be used by primary school students.
Also, we want to have different levels for each primary classes.

Please let me know your ideas or suggestions for developing this project.

Thanks,
Pavi

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Pavi
In reply to this post by Brynn
Dear Brynn,

We want to add inkscape to our software so it may enhance the value of our software.
Just creating the instruction material would be of no use to our business growth.

Thanks,
Pavi

On the other hand, I was just thinking.  As a community, I think we are aware that Inkscape is probably lacking in instructional material - especially from the beginner level on up.

If SunTech is offering to pay us to create such instructional material, and as long as we would be free to make it available to all Inkscape users as well, maybe it would be worth considering the offer?

All best,
brynn

Actually the original was junked by gmail for me.

Dear Pavi,

I think the idea of an Inkscape for Kids is a really good idea. I would like to invite Sun Tech Group to consider developing such a modification in the public under a generic name without specific branding (which can be added in later for your own distribution). This I suggest because it would involve the greatest reduction in cost for maintaining such a fork for your business.

This is a project that we could help you develop in the right way. Let us know in reply.

In addition to compliance to the GPL (https://inkscape.org/en/about/lic
ense/), you must also comply with the Inkscape trademark usage policy (
https://inkscape.org/en/about/branding/) in whatever production you end up doing. If you have any issues, let us know as soon as possible any questions or concerns and we can clarify the rules.

Good luck!

Best Regards, Martin Owens

I apologize if I misunderstood.  From this

I thought all you wanted was a logo and instructional material.

Maybe you should say specifically what you want, rather than generalities?  From
my point of view, adding Inkscape to your products will enhance the value, even
if it's not changed at all.

Although I think Martin's suggest was for you to make the changes that you need
(with guidance from the Inkscape community); if developers were to provide you a
quote, they would need to know every detail about what you want.

All best,
brynn

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Also as per my understanding, you will have to specify the source code of the program for free online, i.e. you have to give proper attirubtion to inkscape and well. I request other sound professionals to step in for the legal aspects since I am just a newbie.

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Pavi

Dear Brynn/Others,

 

It is not just about the logo and instruction material. We want to customize inkscape for school kids.

 

Our software XCLASS is used in primary schools,P1 to P6(students aged between 6 to 12). Since the current inkscape software is advance level for these kids, we want to introduce to them step by step for each year.

Each primary year, they can learn few topics in inkscape. Like to begin with basic shapes, then tracing, then layering and extracting and so on. As they go to higher classes, we can increase the level of tracing, calligraphy, designing and so on.

 

If anyone is interested to develop this kind of project, please inbox me so that we can discuss in detail and take it forward.

 

Thanks,

Pavi

Maybe you should say specifically what you want, rather than generalities?  From
my point of view, adding Inkscape to your products will enhance the value, even
if it's not changed at all.

Although I think Martin's suggest was for you to make the changes that you need
(with guidance from the Inkscape community); if developers were to provide you a
quote, they would need to know every detail about what you want.

All best,

Dear Brynn,

We want to add inkscape to our software so it may enhance the value of our
software.
Just creating the instruction material would be of no use to our business
growth.

On the other hand, I was just thinking.  As a community, I think we are aware
that Inkscape is probably lacking in instructional material - especially from
the beginner level on up.

If SunTech is offering to pay us to create such instructional material, and as
long as we would be free to make it available to all Inkscape users as well,
maybe it would be worth considering the offer?

All best,

Actually the original was junked by gmail for me.

Dear Pavi,

I think the idea of an Inkscape for Kids is a really good idea. I would like to
invite Sun Tech Group to consider developing such a modification in the public
under a generic name without specific branding (which can be added in later for
your own distribution). This I suggest because it would involve the greatest
reduction in cost for maintaining such a fork for your business.

This is a project that we could help you develop in the right way. Let us know
in reply.

In addition to compliance to the GPL (https://inkscape.org/en/about/lic
ense/
), you must also comply with the Inkscape trademark usage policy (
https://inkscape.org/en/about/branding/) in whatever production you end up
doing. If you have any issues, let us know as soon as possible any questions or
concerns and we can clarify the rules.

Good luck!

Dear Brynn/Others,

 

It is not just about the logo and instruction material. We want to customize inkscape for school kids.

 

Our software XCLASS is used in primary schools,P1 to P6(students aged between 6 to 12). Since the current inkscape software is advance level for these kids, we want to introduce to them step by step for each year.

Each primary year, they can learn few topics in inkscape. Like to begin with basic shapes, then tracing, then layering and extracting and so on. As they go to higher classes, we can increase the level of tracing, calligraphy, designing and so on.

 

If anyone is interested to develop this kind of project, please inbox me so that we can discuss in detail and take it forward.


Pavi and others,

I think this is a great opportunity to address the sometimes hostile UX of Inkscape. (They way I learned Inkscape was through daily "struggle" in combination with the Inkscape Book, but I was a (technically educated) adult when I learned that.)

I would like to add to the discussion that there has been som recent development during the summer if i remember correctly, to 'extract' the menus/icons from the code base, and into configuration files, making it easier to do precisely the stuff Pavi suggests - introduce features piecewise...

For example, Pavis software house could develop a menu+icon set called be "P1.config", another "P2.config" and so on, adding features step-by-step.

What would be needed, is good documentation of how to do such configration. Or one of the devs that knows how, could teach Pavis company as a consultant. Maybe a couple of days turotialing would be enough?



 

Thanks,

Pavi

Also as per my understanding, you will have to specify the source code of the program for free online, i.e. you have to give proper attirubtion to inkscape and well. I request other sound professionals to step in for the legal aspects since I am just a newbie.

Re: Price Quote: Customize and add Inkscape to our software XCLASS

Brynn
In reply to this post by Pavi
While I would very much like to help create such a project (assuming it would
carry the same license as Inkscape), I really would only have skills for writing
instructional material.  I could be involved in discussions about a modified
interface, but I wouldn't be able to actually modify the source code.

OOHH!  I just remembered this.  Some number of years ago....maybe almost 10
years ago, there was....I think it was a fork of Inkscape, called Kidscape,
which was going to be developed as Inkscape for kids.  I have not kept up with
that project.  But if you can find it, it might be a good starting place for
you.

All best,
brynn

Dear Brynn/Others,



It is not just about the logo and instruction material. We want to customize
inkscape for school kids.



Our software XCLASS is used in primary schools,P1 to P6(students aged between 6
to 12). Since the current inkscape software is advance level for these kids, we
want to introduce to them step by step for each year.

Each primary year, they can learn few topics in inkscape. Like to begin with
basic shapes, then tracing, then layering and extracting and so on. As they go
to higher classes, we can increase the level of tracing, calligraphy, designing
and so on.



If anyone is interested to develop this kind of project, please inbox me so that
we can discuss in detail and take it forward.



Thanks,

Pavi

Dear Brynn/Others,



It is not just about the logo and instruction material. We want to customize
inkscape for school kids.



Our software XCLASS is used in primary schools,P1 to P6(students aged between 6
to 12). Since the current inkscape software is advance level for these kids, we
want to introduce to them step by step for each year.

Each primary year, they can learn few topics in inkscape. Like to begin with
basic shapes, then tracing, then layering and extracting and so on. As they go
to higher classes, we can increase the level of tracing, calligraphy, designing
and so on.



If anyone is interested to develop this kind of project, please inbox me so that
we can discuss in detail and take it forward.



Thanks,

Pavi

Also as per my understanding, you will have to specify the source code of the
program for free online, i.e. you have to give proper attirubtion to inkscape
and well. I request other sound professionals to step in for the legal aspects
since I am just a newbie.

I thought all you wanted was a logo and instructional material.

Maybe you should say specifically what you want, rather than generalities?  From
my point of view, adding Inkscape to your products will enhance the value, even
if it's not changed at all.

Although I think Martin's suggest was for you to make the changes that you need
(with guidance from the Inkscape community); if developers were to provide you a
quote, they would need to know every detail about what you want.

On the other hand, I was just thinking.  As a community, I think we are aware
that Inkscape is probably lacking in instructional material - especially from
the beginner level on up.

If SunTech is offering to pay us to create such instructional material, and as
long as we would be free to make it available to all Inkscape users as well,
maybe it would be worth considering the offer?

Actually the original was junked by gmail for me.

Dear Pavi,

I think the idea of an Inkscape for Kids is a really good idea. I would like to
invite Sun Tech Group to consider developing such a modification in the public
under a generic name without specific branding (which can be added in later for
your own distribution). This I suggest because it would involve the greatest
reduction in cost for maintaining such a fork for your business.

This is a project that we could help you develop in the right way. Let us know
in reply.

In addition to compliance to the GPL (https://inkscape.org/en/about/lic
ense/
), you must also comply with the Inkscape trademark usage policy (
https://inkscape.org/en/about/branding/) in whatever production you end up
doing. If you have any issues, let us know as soon as possible any questions or
concerns and we can clarify the rules.

Good luck!

Dear Pavi,

An open source project is not a professional project delivery company.
There are companies and there are people who do professional
programming here, but this channel is not the place to discuss the
details of such business.

If you have had no programmers or companies emailing you privately with
offers, then you will have to find a company from the wider pool of
open source companies.

As such this email list for talking about Inkscape development and
while I enjoy seeing the odd commercial venture invitation, the further
discussion should quickly move off this list until time to talk about
actual code changes.

Good luck.

Hi Pavi,
        All I could do is suggest searching the internet for "kidscape".  Geez,
it was probably based on version 0.44 or lower.  But those early versions may be
simple enough not to need modification??

        Someone in this community may remember the names of the people involved
with that.  But I was new in the community back then, so I don't remember any
names.  Oh wait....there may be still an old message in InkscapeForum.  Let's
see....

        Oh yeah, here we go:
http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=610  I suppose you could try
sending a PM to the member who posted that message.  But after 10 years, the
email address probably is no longer active.  You'll just have to be a super
sleuth!

        Sorry, I wish I could be more help.  Good luck!

software XCLASS

While I would very much like to help create such a project (assuming it would
carry the same license as Inkscape), I really would only have skills for writing
instructional material.  I could be involved in discussions about a modified
interface, but I wouldn't be able to actually modify the source code.

OOHH!  I just remembered this.  Some number of years ago....maybe almost 10
years ago, there was....I think it was a fork of Inkscape, called Kidscape,
which was going to be developed as Inkscape for kids.  I have not kept up with
that project.  But if you can find it, it might be a good starting place for
you.

All best,
brynn

Dear Brynn/Others,



It is not just about the logo and instruction material. We want to customize
inkscape for school kids.



Our software XCLASS is used in primary schools,P1 to P6(students aged between 6
to 12). Since the current inkscape software is advance level for these kids, we
want to introduce to them step by step for each year.

Each primary year, they can learn few topics in inkscape. Like to begin with
basic shapes, then tracing, then layering and extracting and so on. As they go
to higher classes, we can increase the level of tracing, calligraphy, designing
and so on.



If anyone is interested to develop this kind of project, please inbox me so that
we can discuss in detail and take it forward.



Thanks,

Pavi

Also as per my understanding, you will have to specify the source code of the
program for free online, i.e. you have to give proper attirubtion to inkscape
and well. I request other sound professionals to step in for the legal aspects
since I am just a newbie.

I thought all you wanted was a logo and instructional material.

Maybe you should say specifically what you want, rather than generalities?  From
my point of view, adding Inkscape to your products will enhance the value, even
if it's not changed at all.

Although I think Martin's suggest was for you to make the changes that you need
(with guidance from the Inkscape community); if developers were to provide you a
quote, they would need to know every detail about what you want.

All best,
brynn

Dear Brynn,

We want to add inkscape to our software so it may enhance the value of our
software.
Just creating the instruction material would be of no use to our business
growth.

Thanks,
Pavi

On the other hand, I was just thinking.  As a community, I think we are aware
that Inkscape is probably lacking in instructional material - especially from
the beginner level on up.

If SunTech is offering to pay us to create such instructional material, and as
long as we would be free to make it available to all Inkscape users as well,
maybe it would be worth considering the offer?

All best,
brynn

Actually the original was junked by gmail for me.

Dear Pavi,

I think the idea of an Inkscape for Kids is a really good idea. I would like to
invite Sun Tech Group to consider developing such a modification in the public
under a generic name without specific branding (which can be added in later for
your own distribution). This I suggest because it would involve the greatest
reduction in cost for maintaining such a fork for your business.

This is a project that we could help you develop in the right way. Let us know
in reply.

In addition to compliance to the GPL (https://inkscape.org/en/about/lic
ense/), you must also comply with the Inkscape trademark usage policy (
https://inkscape.org/en/about/branding/) in whatever production you end up
doing. If you have any issues, let us know as soon as possible any questions or
concerns and we can clarify the rules.

Good luck!

Best Regards, Martin Owens
