Sailfish OS Community
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 and companies alike can define their own mobile experiences without limitations.
Based on open source and built like a classic Linux distribution, Sailfish OS is truly a people powered platform. 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.
Sailfish OS has currently tens of thousands of users around the world. Through current licensing partnerships including India’s largest smartphone vendor Intex Technologies, Turing Robotics, Open Mobile Platform, and community’s Fairphone 2 effort, as well as other upcoming partnerships, the user base is expected to grow significantly in the near future.
Join the discussion
Discuss all things Sailfish OS at the Sailfish Q&A Portal, join the Sailfish OS developer mailing list, and ask questions and share thoughts in IRC channels #sailfishos, #mer and #nemomobile on Freenode.
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.
