Contributing to Fauxton

CouchDB is an Apache project, which is why we keep all our issues in Jira. You can find or submit issues for Fauxton here.

We try to keep all tickets up to date with Skill level for you to have an idea of the level of effort or comfort with the framework you'd need to complete the task.

The Readme file has information about how to get the project running.

Guide to Contributions

We follow our coding-styleguide to make it easier for everyone to write, read and review code:

To start working on a specific ticket, create a branch with the Jira ID # followed by a traincase description of the issue.

e.g. 1234-Added-support-for-list-functions

If there is no Jira ticket for the issue you have, you don't have to create one.

Please describe the issue, how it happens and how you fixed it in the commit message. Before you submit the Pull Request, please run our testsuite and make sure that it passes:

grunt test

You can also open couchdb-fauxton/test/runner.html in a browser. Click on the headlines of the testcases to just run a specific test that fails - it should be faster than running the whole testsuite every time.

Commit messages should follow the following style:

A brief one line description < 72 chars

Followed by further explanation if needed, this should be wrapped at
around 72 characters. Most commits should reference an existing

Closes COUCHDB-XXXX (if there is a Jira ticket)

When you're ready for a review, submit a Pull Request. We regularly check the PR list for Fauxton and should get back to you with a code review. If no one has responded to you yet, you can find us on IRC in #couchdb-dev.
Ping Garren, robertkowalski or michellep though anyone in the room should be able to help you.
