Get Involved

The Fluid Project is an open, collaborative development project. Our goal is to improve the user experience of community source web applications, so if you are a designer or developer and want to change the world, consider getting involved!

The following is a list of ways you can get involved and contribute to the work:

Communication Venues

This wiki

The Fluid wiki is the primary hub for project work at all stages of Fluid projects. The wiki acts both as an archive to older work, as well as an active working space for presenting, discussing, and refining ideas and drafts.

Pages on the wiki are generally expected to be in flux: edited, merged, and split as appropriate. Because the full history of each wiki page is preserved, there should be little hesitation about making changes to a page (that is, changes to pages are easily reversible).

The wiki documentation outlines how to create, edit, and contribute to this wiki.

Mailing lists

The Fluid mailing lists provide a way to have threaded conversations about particular topics. Unlike the wiki, they provide a way to actively "ping" the community. Everyone is welcome to join the mailing lists and no matter where you join us, you will reach our community!

The Fluid Project uses the Matrix communication protocol for collaborative discussions. 

Recommended Client

Element is the default client for accessing Matrix and provides desktop, mobile, and web apps.

Occasionally the Element desktop app can get stuck trying to send or receive a message. We've found that if you run into these kinds of issues, opening Settings, selecting "Help & About", and clicking the button that says "Clear cache and reload" under the "Advanced" section may resolve the problem.
