We welcome contributions to Backpack from across the company. Give us a heads up in #backpack to ensure it isn't something we're already working on.

We welcome contributions to Backpack from across the company. If you work at Skyscanner give us a heads up in our internal channel to ensure it isn't something we're already working on.

Setup

Before you can contribute to Backpack you'll have to go through a few one-off steps to make the experience better for everybody involved:

 

  • Create a github.com account - if you don't have one already
  • Clone the repository of choice (see below)

When using ssh you may want to also either copy your existing ssh key to the github.com account or set up a new one and update your ~/.ssh/config file to contain it.

After these steps you should be able to contribute to all backpack projects 🎉

Before contributing be sure to check the contributing guidelines of the project:
