Report issues and suggest features and improvements on the GitHub issue tracker. Don't ask questions on the issue tracker - use the support channels instead.

If you want to file a bug, please provide all the necessary info listed in our issue reporting template (it's loaded automatically when you create a new GitHub issue).

It's usually a good idea to try to reproduce (obscure) bugs in isolation. You can do this by cloning Projectile's GitHub repo and running make run-projectile inside it. This will bring up Emacs with only the latest version of Projectile loaded. By starting fresh, with the latest code, we can ensure that the problem at hand isn't already fixed or caused by interactions with other packages.


Patches in any form are always welcome! GitHub pull requests are even better! :-)

Before submitting a patch or a pull request make sure all tests are passing and that your patch is in line with the contribution guidelines.


Good documentation is just as important as good code.

Consider improving and extending the this manual and the community wiki.

Working on the Manual

The manual is generated from the markdown files in the doc folder of Projectile's GitHub repo and is published to Read the Docs. The MkDocs tool is used to convert the markdown sources to HTML.

To make changes to the manual you simply have to change the files under doc. The manual will be regenerated automatically when changes to those files are merged in master (or the latest stable branch).

You can install MkDocs locally and use the command mkdocs serve to see the result of changes you make to the manual locally:

$ cd path/to/projectile/repo
$ mkdocs serve

If you want to make changes to the manual's page structure you'll have to edit mkdocs.yml.


You can support the development of Projectile via Salt, Gratipay.

Support via Gratipay

Running the tests in batch mode

$ cd /path/to/projectile
$ make update
$ make compile
$ make test

Run all tests with:

$ make test

Tests should run fine in shell-mode or term-mode. It's also possible to use M-x compile (or helm-make).
