Fedora Community

Fedora community overview.png


Fedora Community is the collection of Moksha web applications which make up the Fedora Community portal - an integrated view into the Fedora Infrastructure. The goal is to create a modular web page in which each module would pull views from the various Fedora resources and display them to the user. It is a first step in implementing the goals laid out in this paper .

Moksha is the base generic platform which provides a web framework based off of TurboGears 2 and jQuery for creating web applications which can be stitched together to create a larger integrated application.

Fedora Community builds on top of Moksha to provide a fast and consistent user interface to Fedora Infrastructure applications. MyFedora is the repository for all of the Fedora specific apps that make up the bulk of Fedora Community.
