Adding a new application
src/apps.json(use a JSON validator).
You can now use SVGs. These are preferred to PNGs, as they are vector graphics and can scale to any size. If you do anything with Inkscape, be sure to save it as a Plain SVG. They will be compressed later in the build script, so don't worry about that. Open it in any browser just to be sure that it displays correctly. Width and height doesn't matter, as it is a vector image. You can open EPS files with Inkscape and save them as SVGs if you install the Ghostscript Postscript and PDF interpreter/renderer. The filename should be the same as the application name and should be added to
src/icons. To find a logo you can use Instant Logo Search.
If you can't find an SVG, add a 32x32 PNG image to
src/iconsmatching the application name (use iConvert Icons to convert from ICO format if needed; and then Kraken, Tinypng.com or OptiPNG for compression).
Adding a new category
Adding a new translation
src/drivers/firefox/locale/en-US.properties and update its contents.
src/drivers/chrome/_locales/en and update its contents.
Refactoring or adding new features
I'm much more likely to merge a pull request if it's an incremental change rather than rewritten or added functionality. If you have an idea please open an issue to discuss it first. I'm interested to hear it.
