Learn what's new in the Ember 3.21 release 🎉, Embroider preparation blog post 📖, get ready for Hacktoberfest 2020 🎃🖥, CI with GitHub Actions for Ember Apps: Part 2 🎥, and last, but not least, celebrate 3 addon major releases 🌟!
Have you been thinking about giving Embroider a try in your addon? Well, the community could use your help in landing Embroider and you may want to consider trying it out!
If you are inclined to give this a go there's an ✨awesome✨ new blog post on this subject by Dave Laird (@kiwiupover) that introduces some ideas about testing your addon against Embroider that may help you get started.
The blog post talks about how you can integrate Embroider into your build pipeline and how you can run your tests against it with ember-try. If you are at all curious about Embroider and/or you help maintain an addon, you should go give the fantastic and timely post a read.
Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software. Between October 1 and October 31, you are encouraged to submit 4 quality pull requests to public GitHub repos. In return, you'll get a limited edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt and stickers (plus knowledge and fun).
If you are an addon maintainer, we encourage you to create issues with a well-defined scope for contributors to jump in and help. Be sure to label the issues with Hacktoberfest so that they're easier to discover. You can also tweet issues or repos with the hashtag #Hacktoberfest. Last but not least, please follow the Ember Community Guidelines and provide a welcoming experience to all contributors.
If you are new to open source contribution, we encourage you to be curious and proactive in asking for help. (There is a #hacktoberfest channel on Ember Discord.) A repo may provide directions in CONTRIBUTING or README file to help you get started. An Ember addon that you have used before may be a good place to start; the Ember teams will also provide issues that may interest you.
