Contribute

We would love for you to contribute to OpenThread and help make it even better than it is today! See the Contribution Guidelines on GitHub for more information.

Documentation contributions

There are two types of OpenThread documentation:

  • GitHub — focuses on setup, how to build example platforms, how to use tools
  • openthread.io — focuses on OpenThread news and features, use cases, guides, API reference

When contributing to the OpenThread GitHub repository directly, add documentation in the form of READMEs as part of your pull request. For example, if you port OpenThread to a new hardware platform, include a README explaining how to build OpenThread on that platform. A good example is the Qorvo GP712 platform addition.

If you would like to contribute to openthread.io, please submit an issue to the Issue Tracker, explaining your proposed contribution. A member of the OpenThread team will work with you to get your content added to the site.

Examples of openthread.io contributions would be an article about using OpenThread in manufacturing, or a vendor providing detailed deployment instructions for one of their platforms.
