The site is work of many contributors. You're encouraged to submit pull requests and propose topics. When in doubt, ask a question in the Grape Google Group.

Fork the Project

Fork the project on Github and check out your copy.

git clone
git remote add upstream

Create a Topic Branch

Make sure your fork is up-to-date and create a topic branch for your feature or bug fix.

git checkout master
git pull upstream master
git checkout -b my-feature-branch

Bundle Install and Run Jekyll

Ensure that you can build the project and run tests.

bundle install
bundle exec jekyll serve

Navigate to http://localhost:4000.

Add Content

Create markdown content.

Commit Changes

Make sure git knows your name and email address:

git config --global "Your Name"
git config --global ""

Writing good commit logs is important. A commit log should describe what you did.

git add ...
git commit


git push origin my-feature-branch

Make a Pull Request

Go to and select your feature branch. Click the 'Pull Request' button and fill out the form. Pull requests are usually reviewed within a few days.


If you've been working on a change for a while, rebase with upstream/master.

git fetch upstream
git rebase upstream/master
git push origin my-feature-branch -f

Amend your previous commit and force push the changes.

git commit --amend
git push origin my-feature-branch -f

Be Patient

It's likely that your change will not be merged and that the nitpicky maintainers will ask you to do more, or fix seemingly benign problems. Hang on there!

Thank You

Please do know that we really appreciate and value your time and work. We love you, really.
