Ever wanted to be able to personalize Confluence, perhaps to remove a click or two with AJAX to speed up a common task?
Introducing Speakeasy, a Framework for Quick Personalization and Extension
Take the Challenge: 15 minutes of hacking, $15k in cash
Codegeist, Atlassian’s plugin coding competition, has a $15,000 cash prize for the best Speakeasy extension. And you still have two weeks to enter a submission. We challenge you to spend 15 minutes building something that makes Confluence easier and better for you, submit your extension to Codegeist, and enter to win a Codegeist t-shirt and a chance at $15,000 in cash money.
Getting Started with Speakeasy
Follow these steps to get hacking on a Speakeasy extension:
- Install Speakeasy on an instance of Confluence
- Start building a Speakeasy extension
- Submit your extension to Codegeist
Simple Implementation, Large Impact
We’ve published the binaries and source of a number of Speakeasy Extensions that have been built here at Atlassian. You’ll see that many of these extensions are fairly simple in implementation: thumbnail previews for image attachments; sidebar removal on personal spaces; “next” button for photo galleries; etc. Despite their simple implementation, these Speakeasy extensions make Confluence’s user experience much better for the authors of said extensions.
We know many of our Confluence customers are technical, and we’re excited to be providing a framework that lets people quickly and easily personalize and extend Confluence. So give Speakeasy a go and submit what you built for a chance to win $15,000!
