Coworfing is built by the coworking community to share the best places to work.
Depending on your skills and desires, there are different ways for you to participate. Check the What To Work On? section below to find something to help with, and then the How to contribute to get started with our code.
WHAT TO WORK ON?
1. Report an issue
Found a problem?
First check that you are the only one to have spotted it by searching similar issues in the issues list. If your issue is not listed, then create a bug report, with at least an explicit title and a descriptive text, the part of code posing a problem, and (it would be great) a unit test showing what goes wrong.
2. Solve an issue
Here is a list of the priorities to solve. Click on the item to see the corresponding issue. Comment on the issue if you have any doubts or questions. The list is sorted by priority (first item is the most important).
- Button "Edit place" on the place page (public places can be edited by any logged user)
- Button "report this place" (in order to merge double places)
- Search by place name
- Search by tag
- When users makes a search on the map, clicks on a place, and goes back to the map, they should see the map as the result of their search (currently they are taken back to a map of the world)
- Insert the fields for signing in directly on the nav bar
- User should be able to browse places without going back to the list (insert arrows on right and left, like the picture gallery)
- Sorting places per frequentation (number of "I worked here")
- Display LinkedIn skills on places (based on "I worked here")
- Opening times
3. Try and assess pending pull requests
You can also try pending pull request that have been submitted to us to test their validity.
4. Propose new features
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before you propose a new feature as we are currently focusing on solving issues rather than introducing new features.
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE
1. Getting ready to contribute
First, you'll need to have a working Rails development environment. Check the Contributing to Ruby on Rails page.
Be sure to have PostgreSQL configured, as well as bundler, and of course Git.
Then grab the code and deploy coworfing locally on your computer:
Fork the coworfing repo on GitHub
Clone your fork:
git clone https://github.com/xxxyourNamexxx/coworfing.git
Get into your coworfing directory and run
create a postgres user for the app
su - postgres psql create role coworfing with createdb login password 'yourpassword';
you may have to edit your pg_hba.conf to be able to log to your database. More details here.
to prepare the test database
RAILS_ENV=test rake db:create db:schema:load
you have to create
SECRET_TOKENfor verifying the integrity of signed cookies
finaly put your token to
Coworfing is now deployed locally on your computer!
2. Submitting your changes
If you feel like adding your stone to the collaborative coworfing cathedral, please do so using a clear procedure:
- work on your cloned repo
- commit the changes you are happy with on your computer, with a short and clear comment for each commit
Before pushing, be sure that you updated you cloned repo, changes might have occurred while you were working:
create a remote
git remote add coworfing https://github.com/nukomeet/coworfing.git
Get the changes
git fetch coworfing
Get back on your branch and merge
git checkout master git merge coworfing/master
Update your repo on GitHub
git push origin master
Then you can issue a pull request. Be sure to comment precisely what your request adds, and accompany it with all necessary tests. There is a chance that other contributors or the maintainers may suggest changes to your code before accepting it. Please take it as a really good sign, it means your contribution is potentially clever and interesting, and this is the way of the collaborative revolution.
Now play with the code, play with the app, find the coolest places to coworf!
