#Installation

Here are some tips to expedite the installation procedure:

  • A PostgreSQL database and Redis server are always required.
  • Generally, you can skip the webhooks daemons unless you need them.
  • Always prefer package installations for obtaining dependencies.
  • You can usually get away without configuring the outgoing mail settings, but you may still have to generate a PGP key to get things started up.
  • You can skip setting up a reverse proxy and use our development servers via python3 run.py instead.

#Sending Patches

We use git send-email and discuss patches (and other development topics) on the sr.ht-dev list. Please send your patches and development questions there.
