I want to try, can I ?

Of course you can ! You can test LibraZiK "live", i.e. without installing anything. This will allow you to get an overview of what exactly LibraZiK is.

If you need help, the users and developers of LibraZiK can probably provide it to you. You will find ways to reach all these beautiful people in the following paragraph.

How to get some help ?

The blog and the Mastodon account are written in both French and English.

You can also join the IRC channel which is allowing people to talk in French or English. No installation required. Just click here and you'll be connected. There you can find people who are fine to talk French and English. When you are connected, say hello, ask your question and be patient. It is infrequent to get a quick answer on IRC. Do not forget that this is a user channel, and you might find people connected but not available, or not able to talk French/English at all.

If you wish to connect in any other way than the web interface, here you have the needed information : network → "" and channel name → "#librazik" .

Some of the documentation is available in English, but not all of it. The rest is in French, which, with the help of a fairly good online translator, will still be useful if needed.

Another place where you can express yourself in French or English is the LibraZiK bugtracker which is intended to serve as a central point for reporting bugs and/or asking for a new feature.

How to donate to LibraZiK?

LibraZiK welcomes donations with gratitude.

LibraZiK is a time-consuming project that welcomes contributions. You can help by making a donation. We'll see how it works here. It should be noted that a regular donation, by its repetitive nature, helps to stabilize the project. Occasional donations are also welcome. LibraZiK is to be considered as being provided to "free donation", i.e. you are invited to "give as you can".

Important note: this is here a donation and in no case a purchase of a service.

There is an account on Liberapay because it is appreciated what they do and are. In particular, it is appreciated that this is an association and not a company, as well as the fact that Liberapay does not itself takes a percentage on exchanges but that it seeks to finance itself through its own service like any other project. Click here to donate to LibraZiK's Liberapay account.

You can also use trebmuh's paypal account (the lead developer) to send him a monetary donation. Note that, if you can, it is preferred to use the LibraZiK Liberapay account (with which you can also use your paypal account) because it allows to smooth the donations.

You can as well propose any other way of funding the project such as device/hardware donations, holidays invitation,... anything up to your creativity. For that, please contact LibraZiK using one contact way described above.
