Not all changes or new features submitted will be accepted.

###Making Changes

  • Fork journalduhacker/journalduhacker on

  • (Optional) Create a branch to house your changes.

  • Wrap code at 80 characters with 2-space soft tabs for Ruby code. For other languages, use the existing style of the files being edited. 3rd party, externally-maintained code such as Javascript libraries can remain in their own style.

  • Check for unnecessary whitespace with git diff --check before committing. Commit whitespace and other code cleanups separately so that your actual changes can be easily understood.

  • Write a proper commit message with the first line being a short, present-tense explanation of the change. Wrap all lines at 80 characters.

  • If applicable, add tests for your changes. Not all changes require tests, and tests should not be added just for the sake of code coverage.

  • Run all tests (with rake in the root directory) to ensure nothing has been broken by your changes.
