Reporting Issues

If you have found what you think is a bug, please start a discussion.

Also for usage questions, please start a discussion.

Suggesting new features

If you are here to suggest a feature, first start a discussion if it does not already exist. From there, we will discuss use-cases for the feature and then finally discuss how it could be implemented.

Development guide

If you would like to contribute by fixing an open issue or developing a new feature you can use this suggested workflow:

General

  1. Fork this repository
  2. Create a new feature branch based off the main branch
  3. Follow the Core lib and/or the docs guide below and come back to this once done
  4. Run pnpm run prettier to format the code
  5. Git stage your required changes and commit (review the commit guidelines below)
  6. Submit the PR for review

Core lib

  1. Install dependencies by running pnpm.
  2. Create failing tests for your fix or new feature in the tests folder
  3. Implement your changes
  4. Build the library pnpm run build (Pro-tip: pnpm run build-watch runs the build in watch mode)
  5. Run the tests and ensure that they pass.
  6. You can use pnpm link or yalc to sym-link this package and test it locally on your own project. Alternatively, you may use CodeSandbox CI’s canary releases to test the changes in your own project (requires a PR to be created first)
  7. Follow step 4 and onwards from the general guide above to bring it to the finish line

Docs

  1. Navigate to the website folder. Eg. cd website
  2. Install dependencies by running pnpm in the website folder
  3. Run pnpm dev to start the dev server
  4. Navigate to http://localhost:9000 to view the docs
  5. Navigate to the docs folder and make necessary changes to the docs
  6. Add your changes to the docs and see them live reloaded in the browser
  7. Follow step 4 and onwards from the general guide above to bring it to the finish line

Type

We follow the conventional commit spec for our commit messages. Please review the spec for more details.

Your commit type must be one of the following:

  • build: Changes that affect the build system or external dependencies (example scopes: pnpm, npm, rollup, etc.)
  • ci: Changes to our CI configuration files and scripts (example scopes: GitHub Actions)
  • docs: Documentation only changes
  • feat: A new feature
  • fix: A bug fix
  • perf: A code change that improves performance
  • refactor: A code change that neither fixes a bug nor adds a feature
  • style: Changes that do not affect the meaning of the code (white-space, formatting, missing semi-colons, etc)
  • test: Adding missing tests or correcting existing tests

Pull requests

After you have submitted your pull request, we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible. We may suggest some changes or request improvements, therefore, please check ✅ “Allow edits from maintainers” on your PR
