4 posts were split to a new topic: Help trying to install Plone with vagrant on my Ubuntu 16.04

Thanks to all of you for helping each-other out in my absence. I've been dealing with a personal issue for a bit. I am so gratified to see incoming students for GSoC already acting as members of the Plone community and helping each-other out. You all clearly have the spirit!

So anyway, a delayed welcome from me as well to you who are new to us, @Arhant, @DipakDA, and @santosh2201. We are so glad you've chosen to try us out for your GSoC experience.


Thanks. @cewing

@Arhant please start a new thread to ask for help with the installation (...ah, I found the way to split off your discussion :slight_smile: )

Hello everyone, I am Manish, I am in 2nd year at Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, computer science branch. I have worked with python, java, nodejs and mongodb. I am very much interested in Gsoc'18. I really am very much interested in working with plone and learning from excellent peer group here at plone. I have been reading chats here at forum. I have installed plone 5.0 on ubuntu 16.04 and familiarised myself with plone environment. I am now working on making a website using plone. I will keep updating my progress. Please welcome me in my first endeavour to open source community.

I am Adithya Kumar, 3rd year student IIT Palakkad, India.

Am currently following the steps mentioned :slight_smile:


Welcome @adithya Adi
Keep going on. :blush:

That's great, do let us know if you need help with anything.
And of course, welcome to the community!

Does anybody know how to check the changes I made in the code of the following repository.
I mean how do I run this repository's code?

Usually you wouldn't modify the code in that repository. Plone is comprised of many packages, so code changes would be made in those. You can find out more how to make core changes to Plone here:

Thank you Sir, I am on it.
