Contributing to Redis

There are many ways to contribute to Redis, starting with documentation all the way to changes to the open source Redis server. Here are a few ways you can get involved.

Contributing to docs

The Redis docs are open source, and we'd love to incorporate your contributions. For small changes and typos, we recommend creating a pull request against redis-doc repo.

Reporting bugs

To report a bug in Redis, create a Redis Github issue.

For larger doc changes, we ask that you first create an issue describing your proposed changes. This is a good way to get feedback in advance to increase the likelihood that your changes will be accepted.

Client libraries

The Redis client libraries are nearly always open source and accepting of contributions. Consult the contribution guidelines for the library you're interested in.
