Flipper Zero Firmware

Contributing

Our main goal is to build a healthy and sustainable community around Flipper, so we're open to any new ideas and contributions. We also have some rules and taboos here, so please read this page and our Code of Conduct carefully.

I need help

The best place to search for answers is our User Documentation. If you can't find the answer there, check our Discord Server or our Forum. If you want to contribute to the firmware development, or modify it for your own needs, you can also check our Developer Documentation.

I want to report an issue

If you've found an issue and want to report it, please check our Issues page. Make sure the description contains information about the firmware version you're using, your platform, and a clear explanation of the steps to reproduce the issue.

I want to contribute code

Before opening a PR, please confirm that your changes must be contained in the firmware. Many ideas can easily be implemented as external applications and published in the Flipper Application Catalog. If you are unsure, reach out to us on the Discord Server or the Issues page, and we'll help you find the right place for your code.

Also, please read our Contribution Guide and our Coding Style, and make sure your code is compatible with our Project License.

Finally, open a Pull Request and make sure that CI/CD statuses are all green.

Development

Flipper Zero Firmware is written in C, with some bits and pieces written in C++ and armv7m assembly languages. An intermediate level of C knowledge is recommended for comfortable programming. C, C++, and armv7m assembly languages are supported for Flipper applications.
