Your help and feedback are greatly appreciated. Whether it's supporting/testing a new datasource type, finding bugs, or suggesting features, every little bit helps make Zillion reach its potential.

Please also consider manicuring or configuring datasets that others may find useful. With as little as a CSV and a short JSON configuration file you can give back to the community. You can host these shared datasources easily with GitHub.

How to Contribute

  1. Check for open issues or open a new issue to start a discussion around a feature idea or a bug.
  2. Fork the repository on GitHub to start making your changes to the master branch (or branch off of it).
  3. Write a test which shows that the bug was fixed or that the feature works as expected.
  4. Send a pull request. Add yourself to AUTHORS.

Good Bug Reports

Please be aware of the following things when filing bug reports:

  1. Avoid raising duplicate issues. Please use the GitHub issue search feature to check whether your bug report or feature request has been mentioned in the past. Duplicate bug reports and feature requests are a huge maintenance burden on the limited resources of the project. If it is clear from your report that you would have struggled to find the original, that's ok, but if searching for a selection of words in your issue title would have found the duplicate then the issue will likely be closed.
  2. When filing bug reports about exceptions or tracebacks, please include the complete traceback. Partial tracebacks, or just the exception text, are not helpful. Issues that do not contain complete tracebacks may be closed without warning.
  3. Make sure you provide a suitable amount of information to work with.


The GitHub issue tracker is for bug reports and feature requests. Please do not use it to ask questions about how to use Zillion.
