How you can contribute to OpenRocket.

OpenRocket is an Open Source project, meaning that the source code is freely available and anybody can help make the software better. The program is mainly developed by Sampo Niskanen in his free time. Help is very much appreciated. You don’t even need coding skills, as there are other things to do as well.

Below are a few suggestions of areas that would need help. If you’d like to participate, please join the development mailing list and introduce your ideas there.

Java development

Below are a few ideas about what kind of input developers can provide or features that could be implemented. For more information see the feature roadmap in the distribution TODO-file.

Aerodynamic computation methods

There is still work to be done in the aerodynamic computation methods of OpenRocket. At least the following items need help. I will gladly provide help in creating and even implementing the computational methods.

Documentation tasks

Contributions to the OpenRocket User’s guide are dearly needed. Below are examples of topics.
