nalgebra is primarily being maintained and developed by Dimforge, and welcomes contributions from the community. In this page you will see various ways of getting help and contributing.
You are encouraged to join us on our Discord server! We are always happy to help, and sometimes a single question there could save you loads of time skimming through the documentation.
You can contribute to this website by completing, improving, and correcting
it. Do not hesitate to correct even the smallest, insignificant detail
(especially English mistakes, including typography). We love nitpicking! This
website is composed of a set of markdown files located on the
nalgebra.org repository. It is compiled using
Docusaurus 2. As explained in the next section,
you need to fork, fix, and create a pull request targeting the master
branch of the nalgebra.org repository to make your contribution ready
to integrate into our code base. There are no specific rules, except that all
compilable code to generate illustrations
must be located on the
src folder. Downloadable examples have to be located
examples directory of the main project repository.
If you intend to work on the source code of nalgebra, you should start by forking the repository. Once you are done making modifications to your own copy of nalgebra, you have to create a pull request targeting the dev branch so that your contribution can be reviewed, commented, and eventually merged.
