First off, thanks for showing interest in contributing to Piranha. Let's make this short and sweet so we can all go back to coding awesome new features!
Piranha is a framework and does not contain any components that produce client code. If you want to contribute such functionality, this is not the place and you should instead create your own community package.
Piranha is cross platform. This means that nothing can be added to the core packages that creates a dependency on a specific operating system or runtime environment. If you want to contribute such functionality you should also create your own community package.
Piranha is lightweight. Just because you can add a feature doesn't necessarily mean that you should. If you're not sure if your idea fits the project, please open an issue to get a second opinion on it.
When contributing new functionality, make sure you add the adequate tests
for your code. We want our test coverage to go up (or at least stay the same)
with each commit. For testing we use the
xunit test framework. If you contribute
functionality to an existing project, please add tests in the matching test project.
If you contribute by creating a new project, please create a new matching test project.
Integration tests must run on
SQLite so that they can be executed on our
build servers. Possible test data should be seeded before the tests starts and
deleted after the tests are finished so that tests can be run several times
without resetting the environment.
To keep commit logs as clean as possible we use the GitHub workflow with feature branches. This means:
This project is supported by the .NET Foundation.
