Code Contributions

Code contributions (pull requests) are currently not being accepted while majority of code base is being rewritten for Playnite 11.

Please wait with any pull requests after P11 is at least in beta state.

Please ask in the related issue first before starting implementing something to make sure that nobody else is already working on it. If an issue doesn't exist for your feature/bug fix, create one first.

Regarding code styling, there are only a few major rules:

  • private fields and properties should use camelCase (without underscore)
  • all methods (private and public) should use PascalCase
  • use spaces instead of tabs with 4 spaces width
  • add empty line between code block end } and additional expression
  • always encapsulate the code body after if, for, foreach, while etc. with curly braces:
if (true)


instead of

if (true)


  • master - default branch representing state of currently released build.
  • devel - development branch containing latest changes. All pull requests should be made against devel branch.
  • devel* - development branches for specific features/versions.


You can see the planned versions with their features in the milestones overview.


See the wiki for info about building and setting up the development environment.
