You can contribute to VTEX IO by creating an issue or making a pull request. Pull requests can contain changes in the code, but documentation improvements are also welcome and appreciated! :)


We strongly recommend you create your own branch before submitting a pull request. We follow a strict branch naming convention that makes it easier for the project maintaners to keep track of the repository.

Our branch naming convention keeps the following syntax:


The first seperator should define if your PR is a fix, feature or refactor.
The second seperator contains the name of your branch. Try not to get too creative :)


Suppose you want to fix the rendering pipeline, your PR should be called something along the lines of fix/rendering-pipeline

Please adhere to using a kebab-case format for your Pull Requests


We kindly ask that if you feel a certain app requires an enhacement or improvement of sorts, that your first open an issue and describe your thoughts and specific needs. We want to work alongside to define the right approach for your problem.

Pull Requests

Once we settle on a solution for your issue, you can submit the code patch for review. We use an template for ou PRs process. Follow the instructions and let us know if you have any problem.

How to create a Pull Request

Creating a pull request is pretty straight forward. Just add and commit your unstaged changes and push them. Next, create a pull request with a short and objective description of the problem and how your fix solves it.

IMPORTANT: Create a workspace with your proposal changes and add the link in PR description. This way we can see if everything is fine.

Also, before creating a pull request, make sure your changes follow and pass our linting rules. To test your linter, go to the repo's main folder and type

cd node;
rm -rf node_modules;
yarn && yarn lint;


To keep track of changes between versions, we use We follow the standards of Keep a Changelog. Please, always add a changelog to your pull requests. Feel free to refer to file for more information. Add your changes bellow the tag ## [Unreleased]

How to Create a Release

After your PR (pull request) has been accepted, you are able to release it. This repo uses the releasy npm tool for this purpose.

releasy is a SemVer aware tool that changes the app's version accordingly.

To release a new patch with releasy, just go to the repo's root folder and type
