Future is open
We believe in freedom. We want people to have the freedom of choice, be it about code, content or personal privacy. We dare to dream about a future where users, developers, companies, or governments alike can define their own mobile experiences without limitations.
Sailfish OS is truly a people powered platform, built like a classic Linux distribution. Based on open source, it’s built together with a vibrant Sailfish community. You can be a Sailfish OS developer, seasoned user or the new kid on the block and just getting started – everyone is invited to join the Sailfish family. DIT – Doing It Together is our motto.
Code the core and apps
Access the software and wide range of documentation and tools for core platform development. Learn how to make great apps and publish them in the official Jolla Store to reach Sailfish OS users around the world.
You can also contribute a translation to existing Sailfish OS languages, as well as propose a new language of the world and eventually join its community-driven localisation team!
Port to Android devices
Access community-driven knowledge base on hardware adaptation and make a chosen Android™ device run Sailfish OS, a true Linux platform.
Sailfish OS is famous for its amazing porting community, ease of porting, and own architecture which decouples HW adaptation from the UI and middleware, supporting new devices with minimal changes across the stack.
Sailfish X is Jolla’s officially supported downloadable version of Sailfish OS for selected devices. It’s currently available for the Sony Xperia™ 10 and Xperia™ 10 Plus, Sony Xperia™ XA2 product variants, Sony Xperia™ X, and Gemini PDA. Purchase the software, install it, and experience Sailfish OS on these great devices.
Sony Mobile’s Open Devices program provides tools to developers in order for them to build and test custom software on a range of Sony devices. Visit Sony Mobile’s developer website to learn more.
