      documentation, testing, bugs

      Helping with the docs can be as simple as reading them and letting me know what's unclear or what you'd like to see explained.

      Testing just means using it! If you want, you can also write more formal unit tests.

      Check out the bug tracker at https://github.com/Scriptor/pharen/issues. You can try to repeat a problem someone is having or give your two cents on a suggested feature.

      Write a small app

      The best thing a newcomer can do is write a simple app in the Pharen language and tell me what problems you run into and what could be improved.

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with Pharen that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

      Deployment

      An easy method needs to be created to go from developing an app using Pharen to deploying it. This would deal with all the dependencies that a Pharen project typically needs and package everything up into something that's as easy to deploy as regular PHP apps.

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
