Welcome to GitHub India 🇮🇳

In this repo, you can find resources and information for the developer community in India.

🧑‍💻 Open Source

The open-source ecosystem in India is thriving with many contributors & maintainers from India and open-source projects being built in India. We are here to help developers, contributors and maintainers in their journey towards open-source.

GitHub Grants for Open Source

At GitHub Satellite India 2021, we announced the GitHub India Grants for Open Source to support the open source community by providing monetary grants to contributors/maintainers, with a total monetary fund of INR 1 crore.

Projects from India

There are many open-source projects that we might be using frequently, but unaware that it's a project that was created in or receiving significant contributions from India. We have collated some of the projects from India in this GitHub Explore Collection - Made in India

If you know of any other projects from India, Suggest an edit and tag any one of the project's maintainers/admin in the comment of the PR.


If you are looking to make your first contribution to open source, or even an experienced maintainer looking for ways to grow your community — we have resources to help you! Check out the Open Source Guide which has many resources on how to start an open-source project, build communities, best practices for maintainers, and a lot more!
