Bug Reports // Feature Requests

Use GitHub Issues to report any bugs or to request any features that may be useful to anyone else.

Check currently open issues and closed ones to make sure someone else hasn't already made the issue.

For bug reports, be sure to include:

  • Hilbish Version (hilbish -v)
  • Ways to reproduce


For any code contributions (Lua and/or Go), you should follow these rules:

  • Tab size 4 indentation
  • 80 line column limit, unless it breaks code or anything like that
  • In Lua prefer no braces () if the function takes 1 string argument
  • Use camelCase

Making the Pull Request

  1. Ensure that any new install or build dependencies are documented in the README.md and pull request.

  2. Mention any and all changes, this includes useful file locations and breaking changes.

  3. We use Semver for versioning and Conventional Commits for commit messages. Please document any breaking changes and be sure to write proper commits, or your pull request will not be considered.

  4. Finally, make the pull request.
