We welcome all contributions to the project both big and small. From new features, bug reports to even spelling mistake corrections in the documentation. Please don’t hesitate to submit an issue.

The Contributing guide provides information on how to submit an issue or create a pull request to fix a bug or add a new feature to JBake.


The project has adopted the Semantic Versioning spec from v2.2.0 onwards to maintain an understandable backwards compatibility strategy.

The version format is as follows:

  • An increment of the major version represents incompatible API changes.

  • An increment of the minor version represents additional functionality in a backwards-compatible manner.

  • An increment of the patch version represents backwards-compatible bug fixes.

  • Existence of a label represents a pre-release or build metadata.

Build System

The project uses Gradle 4.9+ as the build system. To build the JBake distribution ZIP file execute the following command from the root of the repo:

$ ./gradlew distZip

This will build a ZIP file in the /build/distributions folder.

For more information see Test, Build and Deploy

Coding conventions

The project uses a basic set of checkstyle rules to keep the Code in shape.

We configured the gradle checkstyle Plugin to run with the check task. It does not break the build if convention violations are found. But prints a warning and generates a report.

For more information see Test, Build and Deploy
