Where to Get Help and Share Ideas
- Start by reading the Bridgetown Documentation.
- Kick off a discussion on the Discussions Board on GitHub.
- Or chat with Bridgetowners live on our Discord server.
There are a bunch of helpful core team and community members available that should be able to point you in the right direction.
Bridgetown Cards: Share what you know. Build what you learn.
Bridgetown Cards is a community site, for Bridgetowners, by Bridgetowners. Browse through a selection of tips & tricks, with accompanying code snippets, to help you get a leg up on your site build. Then when you come up with a cool new technique or pull in a sweet Ruby gem or neat-o NPM package, and want to share that know-how with others, this is the place to do it. Have fun! 😃
There’s also a growing number of companies which provide commercial support for advanced Bridgetown site builds. These include:

Ways to Contribute
Whether you’re a developer, designer, or overall Bridgetown enthusiast, there are lots of ways to contribute to our open source project. Here’s a few ideas:
- Comment on some of the project’s open issues. Have you experienced the same problem? Know a work around? Do you have a suggestion for how the feature could be better?
- Read through the documentation and file a pull request (PR) by forking the Bridgetown repo on GitHub and adding your changes or suggestions for something that could be improved.
- Browse through the latest chat room activity and lend a hand answering questions or proposing awesome new features. There’s a good chance other folks are in the same boat as you.
- Help evaluate open pull requests by testing the changes locally and reviewing what’s proposed. Or if you have a PR you’d like to submit for a new feature or a bugfix, we’d be thrilled to evaluate it and guide it through the release cycle if it adheres to our project goals.
Reminder: Bridgetown’s issue tracker on GitHub is not a support forum. Only file issues for reproducible problems you’ve identified while using Bridgetown.
