Contributing to Source Code
Thanks for wanting to contribute source code to Nextcloud. That's great!
Please read the Developer Manuals to learn how to create your first application or how to test the Nextcloud code with PHPUnit.
In order to constantly increase the quality of our software we can no longer accept pull request which submit un-tested code. It is a must have that changed and added code segments are unit tested. In some areas unit testing is hard (aka almost impossible) as of today - in these areas refactoring WHILE fixing a bug is encouraged to enable unit testing.
Sign your work
We use the Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) as a additional safeguard for the Nextcloud project. This is a well established and widely used mechanism to assure contributors have confirmed their right to license their contribution under the project's license. Please read contribute/developer-certificate-of-origin. If you can certify it, then just add a line to every git commit message:
Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <email@example.com>
Use your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions).
If you set your
user.email git configs, you can sign your
commit automatically with
git commit -s. You can also use git aliases
git config --global alias.ci 'commit -s'. Now you can commit with
git ci and the commit will be signed.
Apply a license
In case you are not sure how to add or update the license header correctly please have a look at contribute/HowToApplyALicense.md
