Contributing to Sui

This page describes how to add to Sui. If you merely need to get the Sui binaries, follow Install Sui.

This site is available in two versions in the menu at top left: the default and stable Devnet branch and the Latest build upstream main branch. Use the devnet version for app development on top of Sui. Use the Latest build main branch for contributing to the Sui blockchain as described on this page. Always check and submit fixes to the main branch.

Find answers to common questions in our FAQ. Read other sub-pages in this section for ways to contribute to Sui.

Sui is evolving quickly. See our roadmap for the overall status of Sui, including timelines for launching Devnet, Testnet, and Mainnet.

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.
