To contribute to the source code of the Fluid Project, we recommend the following:

  1. Download the latest source code from our githup space.
  2. Become familiar with the source code by running tests and trying some demos.
  3. Check the Fluid issue tracker database for tasks to be done.
    • If you find a task you would like to do, submit a patch or pull request for that task.
    • Note: you will need to sign up for a issue tracker account before being able to submit a patch.
    • Note: you will need to sign up for a github account before making a pull request.

We are an open community, so anyone can check-out our source code and contribute.

Before jumping into some code, we would love for you to introduce yourself first. This would help us understand what you're interested in and help us give you guidance.

See this page on how to join a conversation.

Push access to Fluid's github repos

By default, push access to Fluid's github repositories are restricted. This means that to contribute code back to Fluid, you should submit a patch to or make a pull request for a particular Jira issue. This allows the community to collaborate on the modifications first before it affects the main code in project repository.

After a few patches and/or pull requests, you can petition for Commit Access by following this procedure.
