How to contribute

We love your contribution, for it's essential for making ExceptionNotification greater every day. In order to keep it as easy as possible to contribute changes, here are a few guidelines that we need contributors to follow:

First of all

  • Check if the issue you're going to submit isn't already submitted in the Issues page.


  • Submit a ticket for your issue, assuming one does not already exist.
  • The issue must:
    • Clearly describe the problem including steps to reproduce when it is a bug.
    • Also include all the information you can to make it easier for us to reproduce it, like OS version, gem versions, etc...
    • Even better, provide a failing test case for it.

Pull Requests

If you've gone the extra mile and have a patch that fixes the issue, you should submit a Pull Request!

  • Fork the repo on Github.

  • Run Bundler and setup your test database

    cd test/dummy
    bundle exec rake db:reset db:test:prepare
    cd ../..
    bundle exec rake test
  • Create a topic branch from where you want to base your work.

  • Add a test for your change. Only refactoring and documentation changes require no new tests. If you are adding functionality or fixing a bug, we need a test!

  • Run all the tests to assure nothing else was broken. We only take pull requests with passing tests.

  • Check for unnecessary whitespace with git diff --check before committing.

  • Push to your fork and submit a pull request.
