Send ideas to: [email protected]

And file documentation fixes or requests for improvement at: https://github.com/MystenLabs/sui/issues/new/choose

Select the Sui Doc Bug template, adjust fields, and describe the issue.

You may also make changes to the docs directly in GitHub right here using the Source Code link below.

Important: Make sure you are in the main rather than devnet branch in the URL.

Simply edit the file in question and generate a pull request. We will get back to you shortly.

In order to obtain the Sui source code, follow the steps to download (git clone) the sui repository at Install Sui.

Send pull requests

Start by creating your own fork of the repo:

$ gh repo fork https://github.com/mystenlabs/sui.git # or alternatively, clone your fork
cargo install --path sui/sui # put Sui CLI's in your PATH
cd sui
cargo build --all --all-targets # check that build works
cargo test # check that tests pass

To submit your pull request:

  1. Make your changes in a descriptively named branch.
  2. If you have added code that should be tested, add unit tests.
  3. Ensure your code builds and passes the tests: cargo test
  4. Make sure your code passes the linters and autoformatter: cargo clippy --all --all-targets && cargo fmt --all
  5. If you have made changes to APIs, update the relevant documentation, and build and test the developer site.
  6. Run git push -f origin <branch_name>, then open a pull request from the Sui GitHub site.
