First of all, thank you for your interest in contributing to Mango! To make sure your PR can be reviewed and merged smoothly, please read the following development guideline.


The master branch contains source code for the latest stable release. In will only be updated when making new releases. The dev branch is where the development is actually happening. It contains new features and bug-fixes to be released in the next version.

General Workflow

  1. Fork this repository to your own account
  2. Create a new branch from the dev branch. If you are developing a new feature, please name your branch feature/your-new-feature. If you are working on a bug fix, please name it fix/your-bug-fix
  3. Run make setup to set up the development environment. Now you are ready to develop Mango!
  4. Please write unit tests for your Crytal code if possible. The test files are in the spec/ directory
  5. Please run make test (unit testing) and make check (linter and static analyzer) before submitting your PR
  6. When you are done, submit a PR to merge it to the dev branch in the main repository. Your code will be reviewed and we may ask you to make further changes
  7. The dev branch will be merged to the master branch when we are making a new release
