Contributing

Hi there, fellow coder!
If you are here, it means that you are interested in contributing to this project, and we are happy about it! You will find a collections of useful ressources to get started, whatever you would like to contribute.
Don't know what to work on? No worries, we have a list of things to do!

The project organisation

The project is organised in multiple repositories for us to be able to work on a project (eg the standard library) and update it multiple times without having to roll X different updates for the main repository, the language itself.

Contributing to the language, ArkScript

Clone https://github.com/ArkScript-lang/Ark.git and run git submodule update --init --recursive to clone all the submodules used by the project.
It is advised to do this even if you want to contribute to a subproject used by ArkScript, so that you can modify the project and test it directly

Then check that everything builds fine, and you're good to go.

If you are modifying a subproject, cd in it and change its git remote to point to your fork, then make a PR for your fork, not for the whole ArkScript repository

Adding an external C or C++ library to a project

Use git submodules instead of copying and pasting the code somewhere: `git submodule add https://github.com/user/name.git submodules/name` and add it to the needed CMakeLists.

An idea, a question, a proposition or a problem?

Just create an issue in the appropriate repository, we look at them every day.
