Ways to Contribute
Table of Contents
Financial contributions are welcomed and are accepted using Open Collective.
The Stash backend is written in golang with a sqlite database. The UI is written in react. Bug fixes, improvements and new features are welcomed. Please see the README.md file for details on how to get started. Assistance can be provided via our Discord.
Efforts to improve documentation in stash helps new users and reduces the amount of questions we have to field in Discord. Contributions to documentation are welcomed. While submitting documentation changes via git pull requests is ideal, we will gladly accept submissions via github issues or on Discord.
For those with web page experience, we also welcome contributions to our website (which as of writing is very undeveloped).
Testing features, improvements and bug fixes
Testing is currently covered by a very small group, so new testers are welcomed. Being able to build stash locally is ideal, but custom binaries for pull requests are available by navigating to the
continuous-integration/travis-ci/pr travis check details.
The link to the custom binary for each platform can be found at the end of the build log, and looks like the following:
$ if [ "$TRAVIS_PULL_REQUEST" != "false" ]; then sh ./scripts/upload-pull-request.sh; fi % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 43.1M 100 35 100 43.1M 3 3812k 0:00:11 0:00:11 --:--:-- 5576k stash-osx uploaded to url: https://transfer.sh/.../stash-osx % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 60.7M 100 39 100 60.7M 3 5391k 0:00:13 0:00:11 0:00:02 7350k stash-win.exe uploaded to url: https://transfer.sh/.../stash-win.exe % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 44.6M 100 37 100 44.6M 2 3648k 0:00:18 0:00:12 0:00:06 7504k stash-linux uploaded to url: https://transfer.sh/.../stash-linux
if line will need to be expanded to see the details.
Submitting and contributing to bug reports, improvements and new features
We welcome contributions for future improvements and features, and bug reports help everyone. These can all be found in the github issues.
Offering support for new users on Discord is also welcomed.
