Getting started with the code

We use the nightly builds of the ASP.NET WebStack, so while master always contains stable code, if you don't have the packages on your machine already, they might have been deleted from the myget source which will cause errors during a build. As such, you likely want to work on the dev branch, which is updated more frequently.

To perform your first build, grab the source, and open a visual studio command prompt and run build.cmd from the main directory. JabbR.sln should now open and run in Visual Studio without problems. Note that you may need to update the web.config to point to a valid SQL Server installation. The first created user is assigned the admin role. Any questions or issues can be raised in the meta room on jabbr.

Getting Involved

We welcome contributions from experienced developers. You can get involved by logging bugs in github, hacking on the source, or discussing issues / features in the meta room.
