Contributing Guidelines

This document contains information and guidelines about contributing to this project. Please read it before you start participating.


Asking Questions

We don't use GitHub as a support forum. For any usage questions that are not specific to the project itself, please ask on Stack Overflow instead. By doing so, you'll be more likely to quickly solve your problem, and you'll allow anyone else with the same question to find the answer. This also allows maintainers to focus on improving the project for others.

Reporting Security Issues

The Alamofire Software Foundation takes security seriously. If you discover a security issue, please bring it to our attention right away!

Please DO NOT file a public issue, instead send your report privately to This will help ensure that any vulnerabilities that are found can be disclosed responsibly to any affected parties.

Reporting Other Issues

A great way to contribute to the project is to send a detailed issue when you encounter an problem. We always appreciate a well-written, thorough bug report.

Check that the project issues database doesn't already include that problem or suggestion before submitting an issue. If you find a match, add a quick "+1" or "I have this problem too." Doing this helps prioritize the most common problems and requests.

When reporting issues, please include the following:

  • The version of Xcode you're using
  • The version of iOS or OS X you're targeting
  • The full output of any stack trace or compiler error
  • A code snippet that reproduces the described behavior, if applicable
  • Any other details that would be useful in understanding the problem

This information will help us review and fix your issue faster.

Submitting Pull Requests

Pull requests are welcome, and greatly encouraged. When submitting a pull request, please create proper test cases demonstrating the issue to be fixed or the new feature.
