The source code for the Vulkan Loader component is sponsored by Khronos and LunarG.
There are a couple of methods to identify areas of need:
Please feel free to contact any of the developers that are actively contributing should you wish to coordinate further.
Repository Issue labels:
It is the maintainers goal for all issues to be assigned within one business day of their submission. If you choose to work on an issue that is assigned, simply coordinate with the current assignee.
Use the Google style guide for source code with the following exceptions:
Run clang-format on your changes to maintain consistent formatting
.clang-formatfiles present in the repository to define clang-format settings which are found and used automatically by clang-format.
# Make changes to the source. $ git add -u . $ git clang-format --style=file # Check to see if clang-format made any changes and if they are OK. $ git add -u . $ git commit
Strive for commits that implement a single or related set of functionality, using as many commits as is necessary (more is better).
Please ensure that the repository compiles and passes tests without error for each commit in your pull request. Note that to be accepted into the repository, the pull request must pass all tests on all supported platforms. The automatic Github Travis and AppVeyor continuous integration features will assist in enforcing this requirement.*
loader/generated directory contains source code that is created by several generator scripts in the
scripts directory. All changes to these scripts must be submitted with the corresponding generated output to keep the repository self-consistent. This requirement is enforced by both Travis CI and AppVeyor test configurations. Regenerate source files after modifying any of the generator scripts and before building and testing your changes. More details can be found in BUILD.md.
Run the existing tests in the
tests directory of the repository before and after each of your commits to check for any regressions.
Run tests that explicitly exercise your changes.
Feel free to subject your code changes to other tests as well!
.cmake-format.pyfile in the repository to define the settings. See the cmake-format page for information about its simple markup for comments.
# ~~~comment line before and after that block.
# cmake-format: offand
# cmake-format: oncomment lines.
sudo pip install cmake_format
cmake-format --in-place $FILENAME
sed --in-place='' 's/^ *#/#/' $FILENAME
You will be prompted with a one-time “click-through” CLA dialog as part of submitting your pull request or other contribution to GitHub.
