The Coding guidelines page presents the coding guidelines that you should follow when contributing to the project.

Fork the project#

The first step is to fork the project on GitHub. You can do that by visiting DataLab GitHub project and clicking on the “Fork” button on the top right corner of the page.

Once you have forked the project, you will have a copy of the project in your own GitHub account. Then you can clone the project on your computer and start working on it.

Submit a pull request#

Once you have made some changes, you can submit a pull request to the original project. To do that, go to your forked project on GitHub and click on the “Pull request” button on the top right corner of the page.

Then you will have to fill a form to describe your pull request. Once you have submitted the pull request, the project maintainers will review your changes and merge them if they are satisfied.

During the review process, the project maintainers will check that your code follows the coding guidelines and that it does not break the existing tests. If your code does not follow the coding guidelines, you will have to fix it before your pull request can be merged.
