Community Resources

OpenMAMA has a knowledgeable, friendly and active community who are available to help whether you’re a novice or an expert. If it isn’t obvious which way is best to contact us, the Gitter channel is a great place to start.


For most ad hoc questions, queries or clarifications, please use Gitter. It is our most active community, and the best place to go for general queries. Feel free to chat here about:

  • Questions about the API or the project
  • Suggestions
  • Offers of assistance


GitHub is our control center for tracking all changes to the OpenMAMA project. We use it for:

Guidelines for Participation

Our goal is to maintain an environment of professionalism, respect, and innovation within OpenMAMA development.


Please adhere to the following guidelines as you participate in the OpenMAMA project:

  • Be professional. Please avoid flaming, profanity, vulgarity, SHOUTING IN ALL CAPS. Keep personal discussion for live chat. There is never any reason to publicly discuss gender, ethnicity, orientation, lifestyle, or religion in our project.
  • Stay on topic. If you have a comment that is not relevant to the current discussion, please start a new thread.
  • Keep it legal. Please use project resources for their intended purpose and do not share code which is not yours to share.
  • Don’t feed the trolls. If you are getting trolled, ignore or report.
  • Be helpful. Be patient with new people and be willing to jump in to answer questions.
  • Stay calm. The written word is always subject to interpretation, so give people the benefit of the doubt and try not to let emotions get out of control.
  • Don’t post chunks. Avoid posting big chunks of text. Feel free to use github gist or similar if sharing code is necessary.
  • Be Patient. Folks might not be around when you ask a question so wait a while for someone to speak before leaving.
  • Don’t Private Message. Ask permission before you send someone a private message as it can be considered rude and subsequently ignored. Others may want to see what you have to say anyway so don’t be shy.
