Hi, I am an outreachy applicant, can I start work on this issue?

Hi :MonikaMaheshwari, I've assigned the bug to you! Please let me know if you have any questions, either here or in #pontoon on IRC.

You can start by installing Pontoon locally using Docker.

Once you have a working local environment, please make sure to read our contribution docs. It contains information on how to style code, how to run tests, how to name your commits, etc. All the things you need to know if you want your work to be merged into Pontoon!

The backend code (which will return the right list of entities) should be located here:

The frontend code (which renders the filter in the UI) should be located here:

:MonikaMaheshwari: let me know if this bug is overwhelming - it's one of the most complex mentored bugs we have. If you want, we can try to find something else for you to work on.

:mathjazz: It would be great if you can find something that I can start with.
