Abstract

The Devilbox is currently being developed in my spare time and mostly reflects the features that I am using for all the web projects I have to handle. In order to better present it to the majority of other software developers I do require support to cope with all the feature requests.

So first of all, If the Devilbox makes your life easier, star it on GitHub!

1. How to contribute

There are various areas that need support. If you are willing to help, pick a topic below and start contributing. If you are unclear about anything, let me know and I will clarify.

See the general ROADMAP for what is planned.

  • Consolidate MySQL, PerconaDB and MariaDB into one repository for easier change management
  • Consolidate Nginx and Apache into one repository for easier change management
  • Performance improvements on Apache/Nginx and PHP-FPM
  • Add new container to the stack

New Features

Required knowledge: Various

Have a look at the GitHub issues and see if you can implement any features requested

Joining the Devilbox GitHub Organization

If you want to contribute on a regular base and take care about major feature development you can be invited to the GitHub organization.

This however requires some prerequisites:

  1. Willing to dedicate a regular amount of time to invest in this project
  2. Already spent a decent amount of time in improving the Devilbox
  3. A good understanding about the Devilbox
  4. A good understanding about the PHP-FPM container (and how it is built with Ansible)
