Contributions Guide

We welcome contributions to the Arduino ESP32 project!

How to Contribute

Contributions to the Arduino ESP32 (fixing bugs, adding features, adding documentation) are welcome. We accept contributions via Github Pull Requests.

Before Contributing

Before sending us a Pull Request, please consider this:

  • Is the contribution entirely your own work, or is it already licensed under an LGPL 2.1 compatible Open Source License? If not, we unfortunately cannot accept it.

  • Is the code adequately commented for people to understand how it is structured?

  • Is there documentation or examples that go with code contributions?

  • Are comments and documentation written in clear English, with no spelling or grammar errors?

  • Example contributions are also welcome. * If you are contributing by adding a new example, please use the Arduino style guide.

  • If the contribution contains multiple commits, are they grouped together into logical changes (one major change per pull request)? Are any commits with names like “fixed typo” squashed into previous commits?

If you’re unsure about any of these points, please open the Pull Request anyhow and then ask us for feedback.

Pull Request Process

After you open the Pull Request, there will probably be some discussion in the comments’ field of the request itself.

Once the Pull Request is ready to merge, it will first be merged into our internal git system for in-house automated testing.

If this process passes, it will be merged onto the public github repository.
