This is an old project idea for our (now defunct) sister project, AptitudeCMS (aka Geeklog 2). This project outline is therefore only of historical interest and you can not apply for this project in future instances of the Google Summer of Code. Please see our ideas page for a current list of GSoC project ideas.


Along with blogs, social networks are the new big deal in the netosphere. And for any good CMS to contend in this arena it should be prepared to perform any social networking tasks. At it's present state GL2 is a perfect candidate for adding the ability to perform these tasks. And using Google's OpenSocial APIs is the perfect way to add this functionality.


Develop a plugin that utilizes Google's OpenSocial APIs to provide all the functions common to a social networking site.

Level of Difficulty


This may prove to be a difficult undertaking for a student new to open source development. But with a good understanding of the internals of both the GL2 APIs and the Google OpenSocial APIs this plugin can be pulled off and provide some nice features to GL2.
