Bugs   NPM version

To report a bug, click here. Someone will look into it ASAP.

In the mean time, if you see how to fix the problem and have a moment to prepare a patch, feel free to submit a pull request to the appropriate repo. Thanks for taking the time to help out!

We always welcome any patch with a bug fix, typo correction, performance enhancement, better error message, or that improves the readability of inline documentation/metadata/comments.

But before submitting modifications to code, please be aware: With this project, we've tried really hard to keep things consistent between individual methods, and that means being vigilant about the effect of any usage change in the grand scheme of the library. Thus we can't merge any unsolicited PRs that contain additive or breaking changes to usage (including new methods or options), without going through the process of submitting a proposal PR to the main Sails repo first. See Contributing below for more information.


Please observe the guidelines and conventions laid out in the Sails project contribution guide when opening issues or submitting pull requests.



First, please check out the relevant documentation. If you are having trouble or have questions, click here!


I have an idea for how to improve...

We'd like to hear it! The best way to share your ideas is to contribute (see below).

I wish this supported...

We are constantly looking for ways to improve this library. If we're missing something you need from a particular pack, come by to explain your use case and we'll see what we can do. If you're in a hurry, just create a fork or contact us about professional support options.

Does this use semver?

Dependency versions are pinned, and all releases of sails-stdlib are carefully tested to ensure strict semantic versioning.

What does the future hold?

The roadmap for this library is flexible and we're open to ideas. The important thing is that we remain relentlessly focused on stability and versatility, while keeping the library relatively lightweight and the usage intuitive. Secondary to that, most of the immediate-term improvements we're interested in making are related to performance.

I'd like to help work on this.

Awesome! Please have a read through the contribution guide, if you haven't already. If you're actively interested in helping to shape the future usage and roadmap for this library, we welcome youre input! Please introduce yourself, let us know a rough guess at the # of hours per week you'll be able to commit, and someone from the core team will contact you ASAP.
