What languages / frameworks do I need to contribute to Discourse on GitHub?


(Nathaniel Suchy) #1

I’m looking for more open source projects to contribute to on GitHub and would like to know which languages and frameworks I need to learn to contribute to the project.

From what I understand so far…

  • Ruby
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Javascript (i have a good understanding - still have much to learn)
  • Jquery
  • Ember.js
  • (obviously html/css) (I already know that)

Anything else I need to add to that list? (I’m a fast learner :slight_smile: )

I would say the essential things to know are Ember.js and Rails.

Alright, I’m going to crash-course myself in those and then try to resolve some issues on the Discourse GitHub :slight_smile:

Keep in mind, you’re not going to find any issues on Github.com. We track every here on Meta. Check out the #bug category for bugs, and the #pr-welcome and #starter-task tags for things to do. Be sure to also review Discourse Development Contribution Guidelines.

Thanks for the heads up.
