How to contribute?

There are lots of ways for you to help with improving and promoting qooxdoo, so please see how to get involved and give back to the project!. We actively encourage the community to help in making qooxdoo an even better framework. Take a look at the linked page, and see what catches your interest. Particularly, there is an entire sub-project with corresponding infrastructure available to host substantial code contributions, called qooxdoo-contrib.


Mailing Lists

There are several Mailing lists available, that keep you up-to-date with the project and help you becoming an active member of the qooxdoo community.

Use the general mailing list for technical discussion, user problems, suggestions and announcements. That's probably the best place to ask all your questions.


An alternative view of the mailing list is the qooxdoo forum. You can use this web interface to search and post on the mailing list.

Stack Overflow is used as an additional Q&A channel. So feel free to ask your question at Stack Overflow and don't forget to tag it with the "qooxdoo" tag. The qooxdoo specific posts will be scanned and tried to be answered similar to the regular mailing list.

Bug Tracking

A full-featured Bugzilla installation enables every qooxdoo user and developer to keep track of any technical issues and to post any bug reports or enhancements. Have a look at our Bugzilla overview page.

Real-life Examples

qooxdoo is used in many web applications and in different scenarios. To get an idea of how a qooxdoo application could look like, there is a collection of real-life examples. Of course, as is only be the tip of an iceberg, since it is based on voluntary feedback from the community and typically does not include non-public enterprise solutions.

Job and Service Offers

This serves as a central hub for offering - but also requesting - jobs and services. If you are a company or a self-employed freelancer, offer your services as experts for qooxdoo application development.

Meeting people

There is a good chance to meet the core developers and fellow qooxdoo developers in person. It would be great to meet you at conferences and other social events in order to discuss the framework, your application and, of course, have a lot of fun.
