Bugs Reports

A bug is a demonstrable problem that is caused by the code in the repository. Good bug reports are extremely helpful – thank you!

Guidelines for bug reports:

  1. Use the GitHub issue search — check if the issue has already been reported.
  2. Check if the issue has been fixed — try to reproduce it using the latest master or integration branch in the repository.
  3. Isolate the problem — ideally create a reduced test case and a live example.
  4. Please try to be as detailed as possible in your report. Include specific information about the environment – operating system and version, browser and version, version of typeahead.js – and steps required to reproduce the issue.

Feature Requests & Contribution Enquiries

Feature requests are welcome. But take a moment to find out whether your idea fits with the scope and aims of the project. It's up to you to make a strong case for the inclusion of your feature. Please provide as much detail and context as possible.

Contribution enquiries should take place before any significant pull request, otherwise you risk spending a lot of time working on something that we might have good reasons for rejecting.

Pull Requests

Good pull requests – patches, improvements, new features – are a fantastic help. They should remain focused in scope and avoid containing unrelated commits.

Make sure to adhere to the coding conventions used throughout the codebase (indentation, accurate comments, etc.) and any other requirements (such as test coverage).

Please follow this process; it's the best way to get your work included in the project:

  1. Fork the project, clone your fork, and configure the remotes:
    # Clone your fork of the repo into the current directory
    git clone https://github.com/<your-username>/typeahead.js
    # Navigate to the newly cloned directory
    cd <repo-name>
    # Assign the original repo to a remote called "upstream"
    git remote add upstream git://github.com/twitter/typeahead.js
  2. If you cloned a while ago, get the latest changes from upstream:
    git checkout master
    git pull upstream master
  3. Install the dependencies (you must have Node.js and Bower installed), and create a new topic branch (off the main project development branch) to contain your feature, change, or fix:
    npm install
    bower install
    git checkout -b <topic-branch-name>
  4. Make sure to update, or add to the tests when appropriate. Patches and features will not be accepted without tests. Run `npm test` to check that all tests pass after you've made changes.
  5. Commit your changes in logical chunks. Provide clear and explanatory commit messages. Use Git's interactive rebase feature to tidy up your commits before making them public.
  6. Locally merge (or rebase) the upstream development branch into your topic branch:
    git pull [--rebase] upstream master
  7. Push your topic branch up to your fork:
    git push origin <topic-branch-name>
  8. Open a Pull Request with a clear title and description.
  9. If you are asked to amend your changes before they can be merged in, please use `git commit --amend` (or rebasing for multi-commit Pull Requests) and force push to your remote feature branch. You may also be asked to squash commits.
