Contributing to the Dictionary Manager: Developer Guide

This document is a WIP. Feel free to contribute edits/ edit proposals.

Before getting started, be sure to read the OpenMRS Getting Started Page.

Tech Stack

Key tools used in the Front-end Client

  • React
  • Redux
  • Typescript
  • Material Design

That's mostly it. Other tools, like redux-thunk, axios, etc can easily be picked up. If you are familiar with React, you can start contributing to the project.

We occasionally need to step into the back-end to fix a few bugs. Python and Django knowledge would be a helpful advantage.
