Development 101

To maximize efficiency and reduce code regression we're using Git Workflow. For example, to create a new feature you'll:

  • Create a new branch, named after the feature
  • Do your things on the branch
  • Test if everything is fine and we don't have regressions
  • Submit a Pull Request for branch dev

All new improvements and developments are meant to be done on the dev branch, once it's declared stable it will be merged to master and deployed to happy Volumio users.

Development Guidelines

  • Forum Threads for internal discussion, remember to subscribe topics.
  • Document your work where possible on the Wiki.
  • This is intended to run on Low Power Devices (r-pi). Let's keep code efficient and lightweight.
  • To allow code mantainability, always comment your code properly and update DOCs if needed.
  • Adhere to MVC Best Practices to maximize project quality.
  • Have fun and enjoy what you're doing!
