The FOLIO software development site is available at dev.folio.org

FOLIO uses discuss.folio.org for asynchronous messaging. The Discuss site is a web forum with categories, topics, and posts. Use Discuss for asking questions and recording discussions that require more than a few sentences. 

FOLIO uses wiki.folio.org to store documents with some permanence. FOLIO Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which are dedicated to specific functional areas or interests within FOLIO, have a space on the wiki. 

Join the SIG meeting that is appropriate to the area where you are working: Community Calendars

Sign up for SIG mailing lists so you get all the emails sent to the group(s): https://ole-lists.openlibraryfoundation.org/

FOLIO Slack channels for real-time chat are available at folio-project.slack.com. POs may request to join the FOLIO Slack channels here

FOLIO UX designs can be viewed in the UX prototype.  For some features, especially those in User Management and Resource access, this directory on FOLIO's google drive has more up-to-date mockups.  

The FOLIO Google Drive has working documents for various project groups including most SIGs and the Product Council.

The FOLIO Roadmap shows the high-level features that have been identified by the SIGs as in scope for v1.

User stories have the following general format:

  • Purpose - Story context for casual viewers.  What is this story supposed to cover?  If it's just an initial iteration of a larger feature, make that clear here.
  • Scenarios - Written in the Given, When, Then or "gherkin syntax"
  • Attachments/links - Whenever possible, a UX mockup should be attached or linked to the user story.  If there are elements of the mockup that are out of scope for the story (for example, because the technical prerequisites are not in place), then they should be noted as "out of scope for this story"  

Some example user stories:

  • UIU-253 - Loan Actions: Loan Action for Requests
  • UIREQ-1 - Requests: View Request Details v1
  • UIU-181 - Assign Proxy v2: Sponsor Sub-Section
