Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct explains the bare minimum behavior expectations the Sails project requires of its contributors. This Code of Conduct is adapted from the version used by the Node.js core team. Their version was originally borrowed from Rust lang's excellent CoC.
- We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, or similar personal characteristic.
- Please avoid using overtly sexual, racial, or political nicknames, or any other nicknames that might detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all.
- Please be kind and courteous. There's no need to be mean or rude.
- Avoid the use of personal pronouns in any code comments or documentation where such use could be perceived in a negative light. There is no need to address persons when explaining code (e.g. "When the developer").
- Respect that some individuals and cultures consider the casual use of profanity offensive and off-putting.
- Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every design or implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous costs. There is seldom a right answer.
- Please keep unstructured critique to a minimum. If you have ideas you want to experiment with, make a fork and see how it works.
- We will exclude you from interaction if you insult, demean or harass
anyone. That is not welcome behavior. We interpret the term
"harassment" as including the definition in the Citizen Code of
Conduct; if you have any lack of
clarity about what might be included in that concept, please read
their definition, or ask one of the project maintainers first.
In particular, we don't tolerate defamatory remarks or behavior that
excludes people in socially marginalized groups, or for whom English
is not a native language.
- Private harassment is also unacceptable. No matter who you are, if
you feel you have been or are being harassed or made uncomfortable
by a community member, please contact one of the core maintainers immediately
via private message on Twitter or by emailing [email protected].
In either case, include a capture (screenshot, log, photo, email) of
the harassment if possible. Whether you're a regular contributor or
a newcomer, we care about making this community a safe, comfortable
place for you and we've got your back.
- Likewise any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other attention-stealing behavior is not welcome,
and will result in your exclusion.
Using Sails at work?
