First of all 👏👏 thanks for visiting this page, for us means you are willing contribute to
verdaccio and we are happy for that. Jumping into an unfamiliar code base is not easy but we are here to help you.
If you are willing for asking, we use two channels for discussions:
- Public Gitter channel
- Contributors Slack channel (unfortunately only by email invitation, you might ask in Gitter to be included)
As a first glance verdaccio is a single repository, but there are many ways you might contribute and a variety of technologies to practice.
Finding my spot
All we have different skills, so, let's see where you might feel comfortable.
I know or I want to learn Node.js
Node.js is the base of
verdaccio, we use libraries as
async. Verdaccio is basically a Rest API that create a communication with
npm clients compatible, as
I would prefer to work in the User Interface
Recently we have moved to modern techonologies as
element-react. We are looking forward to see new ideas how to improve the UI.
I feel more confortable improving the stack
Of course, we will be happy to help us improving the stack, you can upgrade dependencies as
webpack. You migt merely improve the
webpack configuration would be great. Any suggestion is very welcome. Furthermore whether you have experience with Yeoman you might help us with the verdaccio generator.
Here some ideas:
- Create a common eslint rules to be used across all dependencies or plugins
- Improve Flow types definitions delivery
- Moving to Webpack 4
- Improve hot reload with Webpack
- We use babel and webpack across all dependencies, why not a common preset?
- Improve continous integration delivery
I do great Documentation
Many contributors find typos and grammar issues, that also helps to improve the overall experience for troubleshooting.
I am a Designer
We have a frontend website http://www.verdaccio.org/ that will be happy to see your ideas.
Our website is based on Docusaurus.
I am a DevOps
We have a widely popular Docker image https://hub.docker.com/r/verdaccio/verdaccio/ that need maintenance and pretty likely huge improvements, we need your knowledge for the benefits of all users.
We have support for Kubernetes, Puppet, Ansible and Chef and we need help in those fields, feel free to see all repositories.
I can do translations
Verdaccio aims to be multilingual, in order to achieve it we have the awesome support of Crowdin that is an amazing platform for translations.
We have setup a project where you can choose your favourite language, if you do not find your language feel free to request one creating a ticket.
I'm ready to contribute
If you are thinking "I've seen already the repositories and I'm willing to start right away" then I have good news for you, that's the next step.
You will need learn how to build, we have prepared a guide just for that.
Once you have played around with all scripts and you know how to use them, we are ready to go to the next step, run the Unit Test.
