With this page, you will learn how to contribute code to the SEBLOD core.

Before starting the tutorial you should:

Go to the Octopoos/SEBLOD repository, and create a fork (image 1). Choose where you want to fork it (image 2), and then clone it (image 3). Click on "Open in Desktop" (image 4). You should save it into your localhost (in this tutorial, we use Wamp, so we choose the "www" folder).
