Contributing to OpenLP: Looking for Technical Writers

edited April 2022 in General Support

Hello OpenLP community!

With just a handful of us actively working on OpenLP, and that on constrained time, we don't always have the time to look at updating our manual and our wiki. So I thought I'd reach out to the community to see if there are any "technical writers" out there (or people willing to learn a little technical stuff) to help us update our manual.


  • Proficiency in English
  • Experience with version control (we use git, but Subversion, Bazaar or Mercurial experience is fine)
  • Experience with lightweight markup (we use reStructuredText, but Markdown or Asciidoc is fine)
  • Experience with the command line (Terminal, Console, PowerShell, etc)

None of these requirements are mandatory, as long as you're willing to get a little technical and learn a thing or two. Also, while we primarily use Linux, you can do this on any platform, including Windows.

If you'd like to help out, please take a look at the openlp/documentation repository on GitLab. For help with git, reStructuredText, etc, feel free to pop into our IRC channel and ask us in there. Be aware that not everyone is active all the time, and you might need to wait a while (hours, even) for someone to respond.

Happy hacking!
