Every Contribution Makes a Difference

We welcome contributions of any kind, including blog posts, tutorials, testing, writing documentation, and pull requests. Our Developer Guide contains all the information necessary for you to get started.

Join the Community

Follow us on Mastodon, Bluesky, or join the Community Chat to get regular updates, connect with other users, and discuss your ideas. Our Code of Conduct explains the "dos and don’ts" when interacting with other community members.

As a contributor, you are also welcome to contact us directly if you have something on your mind that you don't want to discuss publicly. Please note, however, that due to the high volume of emails we receive, our team may be unable to get back to you immediately. We do our best to respond within five business days or less.

Creating Bug Reports

Before reporting a bug, please use our Troubleshooting Checklists to determine the cause of your problem. If you have a general question, need help, or an issue has not (yet) been clearly identified:

GitHub Issues

We kindly ask you not to report bugs via GitHub Issues unless you are certain to have found a fully reproducible and previously unreported issue that must be fixed directly in our source code. Thank you for your careful consideration!

  • When reporting a problem, always include the software versions you are using and other information about your environment such as browser, browser plugins, operating system, storage type, memory size, and processor
  • Note that all issue subscribers receive an email notification from GitHub whenever a new comment is added, so these should only be used for sharing important information and not for discussions, questions or expressing personal opinions
  • Contact us or a community member if you need help, it could be a local configuration problem, or a misunderstanding in how the software works
  • This gives our team the opportunity to improve the docs and provide best-in-class support to you, instead of handling unclear/duplicate bug reports or triggering a flood of notifications by responding to comments

Submitting Pull Requests

Follow our step-by-step guide to learn how to submit new features, bug fixes, and documentation enhancements.

Pull requests solving "help wanted" issues are the easiest to merge and the most helpful to us, as they allow us to spend more time on core functionality and other issues that are difficult for external contributors to work on. If you are new to this project, anything labeled "easy" may be a good first contribution.

Be aware that reviewing, testing and finally merging pull requests requires significant resources on our side. It can therefore take several months if it is not just a small fix, especially if extensive testing is needed to prevent bugs from getting into our stable version.

Contributor License Agreement (CLA)

After you submit your first pull request, you will be asked to accept our Contributor License Agreement (CLA). Visit and to learn more.
