Note: One must read CODE_OF_CONDUCT before starting work on any issue

First things first, In order to contribute you have to create a Pull Request from your forked repo which is a remote clone of this upstream repository.

  1. Click this button at the top of screen to fork this repo, don't forget to star the repository!:

  2. Now head over to the forked repository and copy the clone HTTPS URL:

  3. Next up clone the forked repo on to the local machine using:

    git clone <copied-fork-link>

  4. It is critical to keep your forked repository in sync the upstream repository so merge conflicts can be avoided:

    git remote add upstream
    git fetch upstream
    git pull upstream master
    git push
  5. Create a seperate branch to work on:

    The branch name must be selected according to the issue

    git checkout -b <branch-name>

  6. Contributors must follow the directory structure guidelines:

    • All files must be kept in a directory.
    • Directory name must resemble the issue assigned.
    • Based on the language used, create a directory inside the language directory.
    • Example: If I am writing in Python I will create a directory inside Python directory.
    • In case a project is being contributed make sure to add the files inside a directory(name according to project) which in turn must be placed inside the Projects directory.
    • Changes done by you will not affect existing structure of the project.
    • Add a with your name and link to github profile using [your-name](link-to-profile)

    git commit -m <your_message>

    git push origin <branch-name>

  9. Issue a pull request from forked repo to this repo:
