How you can help: your first commits!
If you’re interested in contributing to Bundler, that’s awesome! We’d love your help.
If at any point you get stuck, here’s how to get in touch with the Bundler team for help.
First contribution suggestions
We track small bugs and features so that anyone who wants to help can start with something that’s not too overwhelming.
Generally, great ways to get started helping out with Bundler are:
- using prerelease versions (run
gem install bundler --pre)
- reporting bugs you encounter or suggesting new features
- adding to or editing the Bundler documentation website and Bundler man pages
- checking issues for completeness
- closing issues that are not complete
- adding a failing test for reproducible reported bugs
- reviewing pull requests and suggesting improvements
- improving existing code, including suggestions from CodeClimate
- writing code (no patch is too small! fix typos or bad whitespace)
- get started setting up your dev environment with these instructions
- backfilling unit tests for modules that lack coverage.
If nothing on those lists looks good, talk to us, and we’ll figure out what you can help with. We can absolutely use your help, no matter what level of programming skill you have at the moment.
