Hack Club is a nonprofit network of high school coding clubs and makers around the world. The Hack Club community has over 250 open source repositories, many of which are being actively developed every day. What makes these repositories open source is that they are editable by the public, which encourages you, the Hack Club community, to come together and collaborate on code socially.
Transparency is a core value of Hack Club, and code is not the only thing we open source. Check out our finances, workshops, and more.
We welcome and encourage your contributions, and we look forward to seeing the things you create!

This document contains a set of guidelines which any contributions to any Hack Club repository must follow.
Contributions can happen in a lot of ways. Adding issues, creating pull requests, and reviewing existing pull requests are a few of those ways.
A fork is a copy of a repository that you manage. Forks let you make changes to a project without affecting the original code. You can create this copy by clicking on the "Fork" button at the top right of the repository page.
Cloning a repository is how you download the repository's code to your computer. You can clone the repository by clicking the green "Code" button on the repository page.
Pull requests are how you suggest your code edits! The maintainers of the repository may comment on your pull request, ask for changes, or approve it right away and merge it in.
Congratulations, you're now an open source contributor!
