Community made patches, localizations, bug reports, documentation and contributions are always welcome and are crucial to the success of this project.

Getting Started

Submit a ticket for your issue, assuming one does not already exist.

    • Your Arduino IDE version
    • Snippet of your makefile

Making Changes

  • Fork the repository on GitHub
  • Make the changes to your forked repository
  • Update the changelog file and add a note about your change. If possible prefix it with either Fix, Tweak or New
  • If you are adding or changing the behavior of any variable, then update the corresponding documentation in the file as well
  • When committing, reference your issue (if present) and include a note about the fix
    • If possible (and if makes sense) do atomic commits
    • Try to follow this guideline while choosing the git commit message
