Contributing New Features or Components

We're very excited to have you interested in contributing features to Varbase. Contributing to Varbase new modules, features, or components should be an easy process if you are familiar with Drupal. We just require the following guidelines to be taken into consideration when contributing new modules, features, or components:

  1. The feature idea should be validated with Varbase maintainers. Please submit a new issue on https://www.drupal.org/node/add/project-issue/varbase as a "Feature request" to confirm its validity before starting to work on it. This is of course if you would like this feature to be included in the Varbase roadmap

  2. The feature must follow the friendly User Experience guidelines according to Vardot's standards.

    See https://www.drupal.org/docs/develop/user-interface-standards
