Contributor Guide

Make PowerTip better! Join the league of awesome today by submitting a patch! The best way to submit patches is to fork this project on GitHub and submit a pull request. But if you are unwilling or unable to use GitHub I will accept patches in any way you can get them to me (JSFiddle, pastebin, text file, whatever).

Style Guide

These are general guidelines, not rules. I won't refuse a pull request just because it isn't the style that I use.

  • Style guide: In general, follow the Google JavaScript Style Guide.
  • Line wrap: Soft-wrap at 80 characters (go further if wrapping makes code less readable).
  • Indentation: Use tabs for indentation.
  • JSDoc comments: Use closure compiler annotations.
  • Method chaining: Avoid long chained method statements, two or three max.
