Guidelines

An introduction into guidelines for contributing to the Authelia project.

The guidelines section contains various guidelines for contributing to Authelia. We implement various guidelines via automatic processes that will provide feedback in the PR, but this does not cover every situation. You will find both those which are automated and those which are not in this section.

While it’s expected that people aim to follow all of these guidelines we understand that there are logical exceptions to all guidelines and if it makes sense we’re likely to agree with you. So if you find a situation where it doesn’t make sense to follow one just let us know your reasoning when you make a PR if it’s not obvious.
