Contributing to Redbrick

Code Contributions

We welcomes new contributors.

This document will guide you through the contribution process.

Step 1: Fork

Fork the project on GitHub and check out your copy locally.

Which branch?

For developing new features and bug fixes, the master branch needs to be pulled and built upon. We follows a Continuous Integration model, where the master branch is always deployed to production.

Step 2: Branch

Create a feature branch and start hacking:

$ git checkout -b my-feature-branch -t origin/master

Step 3: Commit

Make sure git knows your name and email address:

$ git config --global "J. Random User"
$ git config --global ""

Writing good commit logs is important. A commit log needs to describe what changed and why. Follow these guidelines when writing one:

  1. The first line ideally should be 50 characters or less and contain a short description of the change
  2. Keep the second line blank.
  3. Wrap all other lines at 72 columns.

A good commit log can look something like this:

explaining the commit in one line

Body of commit message is a few lines of text, explaining things
in more detail, possibly giving some background about the issue
being fixed, etc. etc.

The body of the commit message can be several paragraphs, and
please do proper word-wrap and keep columns shorter than about
72 characters or so. That way `git log` will show things
nicely even when it is indented.

The header line needs to be meaningful; it is what other people see when they run git shortlog or git log --oneline.

Step 4: Rebase

Use git rebase (not git merge) to sync your work from time to time.

$ git fetch upstream
$ git rebase upstream/master

Step 5: Push

$ git push origin my-feature-branch

Go to and select your feature branch. Click the ‘Pull Request’ button and fill out the form.

Pull requests are usually reviewed within a few days. If there are comments to address, apply your changes in a separate commit and push that to your feature branch. Post a comment in the pull request afterwards; GitHub does not send out notifications when you add commits.
