If you're looking to contribute to the project you're in the right place!

Here's a quick guide to create a pull request:

  1. Fork the github project by visiting this URL:

  2. Clone the git repository

    $ git clone
  3. Create a new branch in your git repository (branched from develop - see Notes about branching below).

    $ cd Parsr/
    $ git checkout develop
    $ git checkout -b issue/123-solve-the-issue # pick a better title
  4. Setup your build environment (see build instructions in our README) and start hacking the project. You must follow our code style guidelines (we use prettier, checkout our README), write good commit messages, comment your code and write automated tests.

  5. When your patch is ready, submit a pull request. Add some comments or screen shots to help us.

  6. Wait for us to review your pull request. If something is wrong or if we want you to make some changes before the merge, we'll let you know through commit comments or pull request comments.


We're using semantic versioning.

Given a version number MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, increment the:

  • MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
  • MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner, and
  • PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.


We use the git flow branching model.

  • master branch represents latest release version. HEAD of this branch should be equal to last tagged release.

  • develop branch represents the cutting edge version. This is probably the one you want to fork from and base your patch on. This is the default github branch.

  • Version tags. All released versions are tagged and pushed in the repository. For instance if you want to checkout the 1.0.2 version:

      $ git checkout 1.0.2
  • Release branches. When a new version is going to be released, we'll branch from develop to release/x.y. This marks version x.y code freeze. Only blocking or major bug fixes will be merged to these branches. They represent beta and release candidates.

  • Hotfix branches. When one or several critical issues are found on current released version, we'll branch from tags/x.y to hotfix/x.y.1 (or from tags/x.y.z to hotfix/x.y.z+1 if a hotfix release has already been published).

  • Fix or feature branches. Proposed new features and bug fixes should live in their own branch. Use the following naming convention: if a github issue exists for this feature/bugfix, the branch will be named issue/ISSUEID-comment where ISSUEID is the corresponding github issue id. If a github issue doesn't exist, branch will be named feature/comment. These branches will be merged in:

    • hotfix/x.y.z if the change is a fix for a released version
    • release/x.y if the change is a fix for a beta or release candidate
    • develop for all other cases

Note: release/x.y or hotfix/x.y.z will be merged back in master after a new version is released. A new tag will be created and pushed at the same time.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
