- Easy Plugins Website This project includes creating a plugins website as well as redesigning the Pidgin plugins UI to allow easy installation of plugins right from Pidgin. The project would also allow developers to submit their own plugins for inclusion in the Pidgin plugins repository as well as upload new revisions of the plugins.
- File Transfer between Libpurple/Non Libpurple Clients. The aim of the project is to implement: Seamless file transfer to and from pidgin : Perfecting protocol implementations(prpl) in Pidgin to enable the “Send File..” feature to flawlessly work between libpurple/libpurple and libpurple/non-libpurple clients(Yahoo Messenger and Google Talk). Alternate file transfer plugin Implementing an HTTP file transfer mechanism for cases where file transfer is not able to initiate/undergo due to any reasons.
- GObjectification Projects This project aims to remodel the pidgin codebase around the GObject. I believe that this transition will benefit the code by making it cleaner, more robust and object-oriented. GObjectification would result in a more modern codebase that is not only more maintainable, but will also lift some of the restrictions developers currently face. The proposal also introduces an intuitive GObject-based plugin API, and a protocol interface that protocol plugins must implement.
- Quail - A Qt GUI for libPurple I propose to create a Qt based user interface for libpurple. I would like to create a new application called Quail that is based around the Qt 4 and 5 toolkits.
