Who would like to port Xournal to Sailfish OS?

About the software: Xournal is an application for notetaking, sketching, keeping a journal using a stylus. http://xournal.sourceforge.net/

I'd like to see Xournal as well, but I'm afraid might need to wait for xwayland to be ported first...

You 'just' need to rewrite it from scratch re-using as much as possible of the internal logic (object handling mainly) and the save/load of .xoj file + a good, fast, reliable, PDF library.

Hi, I need this app too and then I just started developing Papocchio, a free-hand drawing application for Sailfish OS.

That's great news. Will you publish it on openrepos.net?

Well, I sent it to Jolla Harbour, so it should be in the Store in a couple of days. However, I could put it there until then, yes.

EDIT 25/11: Papocchio is available in the Jolla Store.

As a starting point for whoever will go with this port before me:

Really badly needed any app of this kind: sketching, journaling, adding pictures and fingerpainting on top, and... maybe even taking notes on PDF files ! That would be awesome and very useful ...
