How to contribute

Third-party patches are essential for creating fantastic software. Github is a great tool for making contributing a little - or a lot - easy and fun. There are some guidelines that contributors should follow that makes it easier for everyone to help out.

Getting Started

  • You must have a GitHub account
  • Fork the repository on GitHub
  • Try running the tests or generating an extension

Bugs, Feature Requests, and Tasks (oh my)

If you find an error with the way the generator works, that is a bug. If you want to add a new feature to the generator or change the way something works, that is a feature request.

If you think you've found a bug, or have a feature request for G\Generator the first step is to search to see if someone else has already logged the item in the issue tracker.

If you do find a similar bug or feature request, and have additional information to add, please leave a comment. Don't comment just to say "me too".

If you don't find your bug or feature request, feel free to create a new issue, please label it appropriately. Feature requests marked as bugs are pretty likely to simply be marked as invalid and ignored.

Making Changes

If you want to work on a feature request or bug yourself:

  • Create a feature/bug branch from where you want to base your work. It works well to have the issue id in the branch name somewhere.
    • You usually want to base off of the master branch.
    • Please avoid working directly on the master branch.
    • Check for unnecessary whitespace with git diff --check before committing.
    • Make sure your commit messages are in the proper format and include the issue id # in the commit message
  • Make sure you have added the necessary tests for your changes.
  • Run all the tests to assure nothing else was accidentally broken.

Submitting Changes

  • Push your changes to your bug/feature branch in your fork of the repository.
  • Submit a pull request to the repository in the gtkforphp organization.
