Marija Contribution Guide

Marija community welcomes your contribution. To make the process as seamless as possible, we recommend you read this contribution guide.

Development Workflow

Start by forking the Marija GitHub repository, make changes in a branch and then send a pull request. We encourage pull requests to discuss code changes. Here are the steps in details:

Setup your Marija Github Repository

Fork Marija upstream source repository to your own personal repository. Copy the URL of your Marija fork (you will need it for the git clone command below).

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone <paste saved URL for personal forked marija repo>
$ cd marija

Set up git remote as upstream

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git remote add upstream
$ git fetch upstream
$ git merge upstream/master

Create your feature branch

Before making code changes, make sure you create a separate branch for these changes:

$ git checkout -b my-new-feature

Test Marija server changes

After your code changes, make sure you'll:

  • add test cases for the new code.
  • squash your commits into a single commit. git rebase -i. It's okay to force update your pull request.
  • run go test -race ./... and go build completes.

Commit changes

After verification, commit your changes. This is a great post on how to write useful commit messages.

$ git commit -am 'Add some feature'

Push to the branch

Push your locally committed changes to the remote origin (your fork):

$ git push origin my-new-feature

Create a Pull Request

Pull requests can be created via GitHub. Refer to this document for detailed steps on how to create a pull request. After a Pull Request gets peer reviewed and approved, it will be merged.
