About this book
This book was initially created over just 3 days during the 2013 Google Summer of Code Doc Sprints held at the Google campus in Mountain View, California, United States.
The event was a partnership between the Google Open Source Programs Office, Aspiration, and FLOSS Manuals. The initial authors of this book represented a wide variety of OpenMRS community members & developers (Michael Downey, Eric Holscher, Suranga Nath Kasthurirathne, Daniel Kayiwa, Jordan Kellerstrass, and Elyse Voegeli from United States, Sri Lanka, and Uganda). Photos used in this book are courtesy of Michael Downey and OpenMRS, Inc.
In 2016, this book was translated into GitBook format during Google Code-in and migrated to GitHub.
In 2023, this book was translated into Retype format.
The guide was written for OpenMRS 1.9 in 2012 and needs to be updated. We would appreciate any help in updating the developer manual to make it more relevant. For OpenMRS 3 frontend development, please see om.rs/o3docs
