Steps to Onboard
Step 1: Create some accounts
Please create accounts on the following sites, if you haven't already:
Step 2: Tell us a little about yourself
Please fill out a survey so we can better connect you to the right opportunities. We may reach out to you if there is a particular project that fits your skills, but in the meantime please move on to step #3.
Step 3: Familiarize yourself with the on-boarding materials
- Intro to contributing a patch to Firefox Marketplace
- GitHub Best Practices
- Working with Marketplace developers
- Coding styleguide
Step 4: Set up a development environment on your local machine
Our documentation provides step-by-step instructions on how to set up your local development environment. (Have Windows? Learn how to install Fireplace on Windows). If you run into any issues or have questions, please go here for help. Or, jump into the #Marketplace channel on irc.mozilla.org.
Step 5: Select a "goodfirstbug" to work on
Once your dev environment is set up, go to this link to see a list of bugs that are marked as good for first time contributors. If no one else is working on the bug, please leave a comment to let the mentor know you are going to work on it. If someone is working on it but there hasn't been activity for a while, feel free to ask permission by leaving a comment.
Alternatively, we may reach out to you to suggest a bug for you to work on, based on what you indicated in the contributor survey.
When your first pull request is merged, please report it here so we can properly celebrate your first contribution!
Pick another bug
Select another “goodfirstbug” to get more practice, or move on to a “goodsecondbug”!
Please feel free to reach out to one of our community mentors! The two best ways to reach out are:
- irc.mozilla.com - #marketplace channel; mentors are given "voice" in the channel, so should float to the top in most clients
- Code contributor forum: https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/c/firefox-marketplace
