Contribute to Keploy Docs Website

We encourage contributions from the community.

Create a GitHub issue for any changes beyond typos and small fixes.

If you do create a pull request (PR), please follow our style guidance.

We review GitHub issues and PRs on a regular schedule.

To ensure that each change is relevant and properly peer reviewed, please adhere to best practices for open-source contributions. This means that if you are outside the Keploy organization, you must fork the repository and create PRs from branches on your own fork. The README in GitHub's first-contributions repo provides an example.

How to set up the docs website locally?

The Keploy documentation site uses Docusaurus 2, which is a static website generator.

You can make changes locally without previewing them in the browser. However, if you want to build the site and preview changes in the browser, you need to have Docusaurus 2 dependencies installed.

Initialize Docusaurus 2 in the repo by running yarn once in the root directory of the repo.

Now you can build and view the site locally:

yarn start

The command starts a local development server and opens a browser window.


  1. Fork the repository

  1. Clone the repository with the following command. Replace the <GITHUB_USERNAME> with your username
git clone

  1. Go into the directory containing the project
cd docs

  1. Install all the dependencies

  1. Start the development server.
yarn start
  1. To reformat:
yarn prettier --write '**/*.{js,md}'

When we merge your PR, a new build automatically occurs and your changes publish to
