Areas needing refactor?


(Tyler J. Diaz) #1

Discourse community,

I’d like to help refactor some parts of the codebase. Are there any specific areas that should be focused on?

If not, I’ll start by focusing on of the following:

  • Make code currently living in the codebase adhere to the standards set in the contributing guide.
  • Refactoring areas CodeClimate reports to be complex. See: Issues - discourse/discourse - Code Climate
  • Speed up tests.

Awesome :+1: But I would rather you spend time working on improving our spec suite (either improving it’s speed or it’s coverage) than randomly refactoring code.

@zogstrip Sounds good. Any areas you feel could use attention the most?

You know what could be even better? Pick a bug from this list that you like and fix it :wink:

Bear in mind we have a policy of not accepting style only PRs though!
