Just in time for Thanksgiving, we’d like to announce something special that you’re sure to love. PrestaShop is now on GitHub!

GitHub provides a platform for our Community to review PrestaShop’s code, make improvements, and then submit those improvements for review.

Rather than generating bug reports on the Forge, PrestaShop’s Community developers can now make pull requests on GitHub in an effort to improve PrestaShop’s code.

This means everyone who meets PrestaShop’s Development Standards can help fix missing patches and offer code improvements in an effort to help make PrestaShop better for everyone.

We have included three branches of PrestaShop on GitHub to start, v1.4, v1.5 and all the native modules within.  It is important to note that we will be maintaining v1.4, while developing new features for v1.5.

In order to ensure consistency and security, our team will need a little time to validate all proposals. If and when your suggested improvements are accepted, PrestaShop’s core developers will then implement them into our source code.

In addition, we would like to give everyone the opportunity to improve its solution by creating an avenue for our Community to propose country-specific modules and adaptations. This will help PrestaShop become a more consistent when dealing with e-commerce laws – and trends – in specific countries around the world.  To improve PrestaShop in your country, please fill out our localization form.

The entire PrestaShop team is committed to perpetuating our universal vision of open-source. We value your suggestions and your feedback, but perhaps more importantly, we thank you for all of the support you’ve shown us these past five years.

PrestaShop is growing stronger by the day, and we have big plans for the future.  Thank you so much for all that you have done to help makes us the most popular e-commerce solution on the planet.  We look forward to the coming collaboration, and formally invite you all now to join us on GitHub. Let the festivities begin!
