  2. Set up your environment variables by following the instructions in .env.example.
  3. yarn install to install dependencies
  4. yarn dev to run the development server
  5. yarn test to run tests, or yarn cypress:dev to run cypress tests

Contribution Policy

Bugs & documentation

Code contributions for bug fixes and documentation are very welcome. To report a bug, Please open an issue here on github.


If you have ideas for the project, I would love to hear from you! Visit the GitHub Discussions to start a conversation. I am always excited to hear from people who are using hikerherd and have constructive input for how it could be improved.

I am not currently looking for code contributions for new features. Feature PRs are a lot of work for me to review and they carry an ongoing maintenance burden, I can't currently dedicate enough time to managing outside contributions. The best way to contribute right now is to report bugs and get involved in feature discussions!

If you have something you desperately want to see in hikerherd then please start a discussion, and we can decide if it is something that should be implemented. If not, you are always free to fork the project and add it yourself.
