Join this project!

Fjord is the software that runs Input (input.mozilla.org) which is one of several tools the Mozilla community uses to gather user sentiment on Mozilla products. This data helps us track down problems, guide new development and generally make Mozilla products better for users using them.

Interested in helping out? I hope so!

Generally we need help with:

  1. Writing code, fixing bugs and writing tests.
  2. Localizing.
  3. Testing.
  4. Improving the Fjord documentation.
  5. Making Fjord easier for other people to contribute to.

Before contributing to Fjord, you should make sure you have done the following things:

  1. Create a GitHub account. If you don’t want to, that’s ok, but it does make the workflow a little harder. If you’re new to git or development, we suggest you create a GitHub account since it’ll reduce some of the complexities in submitting changes.
  2. Join the input-dev mailing list. We send status reports, development environment change notices and other things to the mailing list. Plus it keeps an archive and it makes it possible for us to work together even if we’re not all in the same time zone. Plus this is the best way to get help when you’re having trouble.
  3. Say “hi!” on the #input IRC channel on irc.mozilla.org. If no one says anything back, it’s possible no one is awake. However, if people are awake, someone will definitely reply and this is one of the best ways to get familiar with who’s who and one of the places you can go to get help when you’re having trouble.

After you’ve done all that, it’s time to set up a development environment. For that, see the Getting started.

After that, check out our GetInolved page which lists mentored bugs.

If you have problems, please let us know! See Overview.
