Lightweight C library for HTML5 websockets
Contributing to lws

How to contribute

Sending a patch with a bug report is very welcome.

For nontrivial problems, it's probably best to discuss on the mailing list, or on github if you prefer, how to best solve it.

However your contribution is coming is fine:

  • paste a git diff
  • send a patch series by mail or mailing list
  • paste in a github issue
  • github PR

are all OK.

Coding Standards

Code should look roughly like the existing code, which follows linux kernel coding style.

If there are non-functional problems I will clean them out when I apply the patch.

If there are functional problems (eg broken error paths etc) if they are small compared to the working part I will also clean them. If there are larger problems, or consequences to the patch will have to discuss how to solve them with a retry.

Funding specific work

If there is a feature you wish was supported in lws, consider paying for the work to be done. The maintainer is a consultant and if we can agree the task, you can quickly get a high quality result that does just what you need, maintained ongoing along with the rest of lws.
