Contribute to the project¶
There are many ways to contribute to OpenFaaS and a wide variety of activities that help both the project and the community.
Before raising a PR or an Issue, it is requested that you read the project's Contributing guide. This guide applies to every OpenFaaS GitHub repository. We have a wide range of suggestions for contributing to the project and community and only some of those involve writing code.
Examples may be: writing some Go code, reviewing a PR, helping with the website or UI, volunteering to write documentation for a new feature, creating code examples, or something else completely.
Five practical ideas to get started¶
Try the samples in Serverless For Everyone Else
Write a blog post and add it to the community file
Read the architecture diagrams
Submit a function to the Function Store
Improve the OpenFaaS CLI tooling with a PR or documentation

Communicate with the community¶
- Decide how many hours you think you may be able to contribute
- Think about where you are most comfortable starting out and what you would like to work on
- Ask for help if you don't know where to begin
All project source-code is organised under two repositories on GitHub:
- openfaas - main set of projects
- openfaas-incubator - ecosystem, extensions, and prototyping
