JabbR is a chat application built with ASP.NET using SignalR.


Before you contribute anything make sure you set autoclrf to true.

git config --local core.autocrlf true

Coding Guidelines

A few more things:

  • Sort your usings
  • Spaces not tabs (I won't even look at the PR if you use tabs)
  • Follow the existing conventions you see in the project (that means, brace style, formatting etc).
  • If you aren't sure about something, ask in the meta room on jabbr.

Features and Bugs

After deciding you want to work on a feature or bug, comment on that issue saying that you want to do it. If you want to discuss the feature further, join the meta room on jabbr.

NOTE: It's important that you indicate that you want to work on a issue so that there's no overlapping work being done.
