Improving wanikani community (discourse)


#1

i was torn about whether to put this in bugs/errors or feedback, but i just wanted to say:

discourse is an open-source software, which means it accepts bug fixes and improvements from the community. it’s written in ruby, which is a programming language i know very well.

so if we have bugs / issues or are looking to improve wanikani community in some way, i am happy to help!

that is all, have a nice day ^-^

Ohhh, I didn’t know it was written in ruby, it’s nice to know!
I’d be happy to do some contributing myself too! :gem:


#3

yep! you can find it here: discourse sourcecode


#4

yeah, I found it a few minutes ago, though I’m pretty bummed they don’t have the issue tracking on github…


#5

agreed! do you know where they do it or if it’s accessible to the public? it seems weirdly contrary to the open-source idea if they hide their dirty dirty.


#6

my tip would be that they have their own discourse :smiley:

dunno, but it should be stated somewhere in the contributing info they have in the repo


#7

Here you go - the contribution guide. I wanted to report a couple of things, but as you mentioned, they don’t track issues on Github. Turns out you report bugs via… Discourse. You gotta post on a “meta” Discourse. So although I’ve found a few minor bugs, I can’t really be bothered to report them right now… :sweat_smile:

haha go figure ^-^’ thanks, i’ll look into it!
