Checklist Contribution

All checklists on Checklist is populating by the Markdown files that in checklists directory on this repository. If you want to add a new checklist you need to create a new markdown file on the directory, or if you want to update an existing one, you can edit the corresponding file and create a PR.

Since we use Markdown files for checklists, you can read Markdown notation from here in case you're not familiar with it. We also use Front Matter to provide some meta data to checklists. Here are the required Front Matter data for a valid Checklist.

Key Meaning Available Values Example
title Title of the checklist Can be anything Bug Reporting
category Pre-defined category name You need to pick one of the pre-defined category Project Management
tags Tags for the checklist Can be anything, but you need to follow tag rules mentioned below ['jira', 'bug', 'issue']
description A brief description about checklist. It will be used on checklist lists. Can be anything The protocol we follow when we report a bug. This checklist is vital for assignee to understand the problem and reproduce it.
date Publication date. Most probably current day. Format: YYYY-MM-DD 2020-02-14

Here is the full list of pre-defined category list. It is not allowed to use any other, you should pick one of them. But, if you have a new brand category suggesstion, you should create an issue for that.

General There are some checklists which are hard to categorize. Let’s just call them generals.

We also have some tag using rules;

Tags are one of the main filtering elements that makes navigation easier and help us to keep everything in order.

As with anything else we have some rules for creating a tag;

  • Tags should be self-explanotory and definitive.
  • Tags should consist of one word only. If it really needs to have two or more words then please use a dash(-) to divide the words.
  • Tags are related but different to the categories so they should not have the same name as it's categories.
