Getting Started


You can find the docs here. Documentation is generated with jazzy and hosted on GitHub-Pages.


Please see the CONTRIBUTING file for how to help out. At Instagram we sync the open source version of IGListKit daily, so we're always testing the latest changes. But that requires all changes be thoroughly tested and follow our style guide.
