Hephy Workflow is the open source fork of Deis Workflow PaaS. Some of the old documentation and README are still preserved so they may reference "Deis Workflow". Hephy Workflow is the community continuation of the Deis Workflow project after it was end-of-lifed by the Deis team which moved on to do bigger projects at Microsoft Azure.

Hephy Workflow is the open source fork of Deis Workflow.

Working on Documentation

Build Status Latest Docs

The Deis project welcomes contributions from all developers. The high level process for development matches many other open source projects. See below for an outline.

  • Fork this repository.
  • Make your changes.
  • Submit a pull request (PR) to this repository with your changes, and unit tests whenever possible.
    • If your PR fixes any issues, make sure you write Fixes #1234 in your PR description (where #1234 is the number of the issue you're closing).
  • The Deis core contributors will review your code. After each of them sign off on your code, they'll label your PR with LGTM1 and LGTM2 (respectively). Once that happens, a contributor will merge it.
