contribute.json

A JSON schema for open-source project contribution data.

This is currently a proposal and is not yet stable. Suggestions and pull-requests welcome.

This is the current draft. I'm presenting the schema as an example instance using mozilla/bedrock as the subject. Previous discussion can be found in the comments of the original gist.

Validation

We're currently using the JSON Schema standard and we publish our schema at schema.json.

You can, for example, use the json-schema-validator to validate your own contribute.json against this schema.

Flask app

There's a server-side app that is currently available on https://www.contributejson.org

Running the Flask app locally

# clone from the main repo
git clone https://github.com/mozilla/contribute.json.git

# go into the directory
cd contribute.json

# using virtualenv wrapper, create a new virtual environment for the project.
mkvirtualenv contribute.json

# intall the requirements
pip install -r requirements.txt

# install the npm dependencies
npm install

# generate the CSS files (use `grunt watch` to work on the LESS files)
grunt less

# Run the app with
DEBUG=true python app

open http://localhost:5000/

NB! Most of the functionality is built as an AngularJS app.
