You can start by forking this repository and creating pull requests on the develop branch. Maybe start working on starter issues.
Easy starting points are also reviewing pull requests
Xcode 14.2 Project Setup
After forking a repository you have to build the dependencies. Dependencies are managed with Carthage version 0.38.0 or later. Run
carthage update --use-xcframeworks --platform iOS
to fetch and compile the dependencies.
In order to build the project in Xcode you will also need a file
GoogleService-Info.plist at the root of the repository which contains the Firebase configuration. For development work you can use a mock version found here.
Creating Pull requests
Nextcloud enforces the Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) on Pull Requests. It requires your commit messages to contain a Signed-off-by line with an email address that matches your GitHub account.
How to Sign off
The DCO is a way for contributors to certify that they wrote or otherwise have the right to submit the code they are contributing by adding a Signed-off-by line to commit messages.
My Commit message Signed-off-by: Random Contributor <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Git even has a
-s | --signoff command line option to append this to your commit messages automatically.
