The scikit-build project could always use more documentation. We welcome help with the official scikit-build docs, in docstrings, or even on blog posts and articles for the web.
The best way to send feedback is to file an issue at https://github.com/scikit-build/scikit-build/issues.
If you are proposing a new feature:

Keep the scope as narrow as possible, to make it easier to implement.
Remember that this is a volunteer-driven project, and that contributions are welcome :)
Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up
scikit-build for local development.
scikit-buildrepo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone email@example.com:your_name_here/scikit-build.git
You can use the
ghcommand line application to do these last two steps, as well.
Make sure you have
pipx install nox. If you don’t have pipx, you can install it with
pip install pipx. (You can install
pipinstead, but nox is an application, not a library, and applications should always use pipx.) You can install both of these packages from brew on macOS/linux. You can also use
pipx run noxinstead.
Create a branch for local development:
$ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
Now you can make your changes locally.
When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass our linters and the tests:
If you would like to check all Python versions and you don’t happen to have them all installed locally, you can use the manylinux docker image instead:
$ docker run –rm -itv $PWD:/src -w /src quay.io/pypa/manylinux_2_24_x86_64:latest pipx run nox
Commit your changes and push your branch to GitHub:
$ git add -u . $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes." $ git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
Submit a pull request through the GitHub website or the
ghcommand line application.
Pull Request Guidelines
Before you submit a pull request, check that it meets these guidelines:
The pull request should include tests.
If the pull request adds functionality, the docs should be updated. Put your new functionality into a function with a docstring, and add the feature to the list in
The pull request should work for Python 3.7+ and PyPy. Make sure that the tests pass for all supported Python versions in CI on your PR.
To run a subset of tests:
$ nox -s tests -- tests/test_skbuild.py
You can build and serve the docs:
$ nox -s docs -- serve
You can build an SDist and a wheel in the
$ nox -s build
