It is October again!
In open source, we feel strongly that to really do something well, you have to get a lot of people involved - Linus Torvalds
Hacktoberfest is a one-month event that encourages
developers everyone to contribute to the open-source projects that they love. We are excited to announce that ToolJet will be participating in Hacktoberfest 2022.
ToolJet is an open-source low-code platform for building internal tools. We open-sourced ToolJet in June 2021. We have more than 13,000 stars and 200 contributors for our GitHub repository. The open-source community consistently help us improve ToolJet by contributing new features, reporting & fixing bugs, improving the documentation, helping us debug the bugs, and more.
Before we dive in to the details of Hacktoberfest 2022, let's quickly recap of last year's Hacktoberfest.
We merged 159 pull requests from 72 new contributors during Hacktoberfest 2021.
Hacktoberfest is an opportunity for everyone to get involved in open-source projects.
With great opportunity comes great swag. Every valid PR is eligible for ToolJet swags!

How to participate
Every contribution matters. It can be bug fixes, new features, new plugins, code refactoring, improving the documentation, creating tutorials, adding more unit tests etc.
Not familiar with our codebase? no problem, we have tagged issues on Github with the label
good first issue . You can view them here: issues for newcomers. Additionally, we've added labels for the frontend (ReactJS) and backend (NestJS). Please make sure that you are creating PR only for issues that are assigned to you.
We do not tolerate spamming. If you're finding it difficult to contribute code, you can still help by reporting spam PRs, which are PRs created just for the sake of creating PRs. Spam PRs should be labeled as
invalid as per the guidelines of Hacktoberfest.
