Contributing Code to openBVE

Please Note: This file is a work in progress, and is intended to serve as a general set of guidelines, not hard and fast rules!

Code Style Guidelines

  • Please use Unix (CR LF) line terminators.
  • Please use tabs, not spaces for indentation for all new code.
  • When only changing documentation, include [ci skip] in the commit description

Code Licencing

The basic licence for openBVE is Public Domain. Please only contribute code which is licenced under either Public Domain, or loose permissive licences (e.g. BSD-2 and compatible)

Backwards Compatibility

  • Unless not possible (e.g. Plugin interface changes) , backwards compatibility with versions of openBVE below 1.5.0 should be maintained. An error message is fine, but a program crash is not!
  • When adding a completely new routefile feature, it is generally preferable to add a new command, rather than extending an existing, as this may be misinterpreted by older versions.
