๐Ÿ‘ฅ Contribute to Open Source

Thanks for being interested in contributing! Weโ€™re excited that you want to help us improve and support the open source movement.

We want contributing to Hugo Blox to be fun, enjoyable, and educational for anyone and everyone. All contributions are welcome, including issues, new docs as well as updates and tweaks, blog posts, workshops, and more.

How to contribute

Here are some ways you can help us build better Hugo Blox:

  1. Blogging, creating YouTube tutorials, tweeting (@GetResearchDev #MadeWithHugoBlox) and in any other way sharing with the world what you like about Hugo Blox, what you use it for and how it helps you solve your challenges. As an open source project, the continued success of the project relies on people who love to use Hugo Blox and who decide to share their Hugo Blox experience with the world.

  2. Contributing to the development of Hugo Blox web framework and templates on GitHub. Join 200+ other contributors in adding open source volunteering to your resume. Take a look at our contributor guide to start contributing.

  3. Joining our Discord and GitHub Issues where you can help the community

  4. Submitting new feature ideas on our Discord or GitHub Issues. You can submit new feature ideas, you can comment to the existing feature requests, you can upvote features youโ€™d like to see by giving a ๐Ÿ‘ on an issue, and you can subscribe to the particular feature to follow its progress.

  5. Reporting bugs or issues that youโ€™ve encountered in your use of Hugo Blox on our GitHub Issues.

Code of Conduct

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Focusing on what is best for the community
  • Showing empathy towards other community members

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing othersโ€™ private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

Our Responsibilities

Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned with this code of conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, divisive, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team on Discord. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the projectโ€™s leadership.

When faced with repeated bad faith comments or harassment after an earnest attempt to mediate an issue, the Hugo Blox team reserves the right to remove someone from the GitHub repository and/or block them on social media. This decision will always be made with consensus from more than one team member.
