Community Contributions

We are hard at work to create a more user-friendly environment for code contributions from the community. To give you a better idea of how we would like the requests formatted, we have:

  • Created a contributing md document, and
  • Added an editorconfig file 

Thanks to Jesaja Everling (jeverling) for the following contribution:

  • Attachments are not displayed in kpi when KOBOCAT_ROOT_URI_PREFIX is used 

And Dave R (geomapdev) for the following:

  • Instance attachments. This allows users to  view existing attachments while editing a submission.
