14.1. How to Report an Issue

An Official Bug Tracker accepts any issue report or suggestion related to the application or an official package.

Here are some guidelines to report an issue. Please follow them! To accurately report an issue strongly increases the chances of your issue to be fixed quickly.

  • First search if your issue has already been reported

  • Copy and paste the first lines of the Console. They should look like this:

    22:27:30.915 Keypirinha 2.11 (66a575a) for x64
    22:27:30.915 System: WinNT-x64 6.3.9600-ws-0x0100
    22:27:30.915 Portable mode
    22:27:30.915 Keyboard layout: 0000040C
    22:27:30.915 Monitor #1: Name[\\.\DISPLAY1] Rect[0, 0, 1920, 1200] DpiScale[1.00] PRIMARY
    22:27:30.915 Monitor #2: Name[\\.\DISPLAY2] Rect[0, 0, 1024, 768] DpiScale[1.00]
  • One bug per report

  • Describe the issue clearly, with simple language, in English (bullet points are good)

  • Provide step-by-step instructions so we can reproduce the issue (we can’t fix what we can’t reproduce).

    • What steps will reproduce the problem?
    • What is the expected output/behavior?
    • What do you see instead?
  • Optionally attach screenshots so we can “see” the issue

  • Optionally attach the complete log of the session during which the bug occurred (the log may reveal critical information to help tracking down the issue).
    Note that you may want to strip the log file first since it may contain several sessions.

  • Workarounds or other related tips on how to avoid the issue are welcome

14.2. Get involved in the development of the Packages

If you are not sure where to start from, some feature requests or issues reported by users may be associated with the help-appreciated tag.

The Packages Repository is online and accepts pull requests.

14.3. Get involved in the development of the Platform

Keypirinha is looking for an involved developer to help creating its online platform dedicated to the automated redistribution of plugins (i.e. website and service).

The project

  • Code would be fully open source
  • It mainly consists of a website and a service to be accessed by Keypirinha itself
  • It will include current Keypirinha‘s website (documentation)
  • Its main language would be Python3
  • It must run on a Linux platform

About you

  • You want to improve Keypirinha
  • You want to spend some of your free time on a long run project
  • You are of the kind who like to get the job done
  • You are willing to enter a friendly online relationship with an other developer for the good of a project :)


Please PM @polyvertex

@polyvertex is a former long-term traveler who values humanized and friendly online relationships between developers. Having a beer (or five) with him somewhere, someday, will be part of the deal :)
