Guidelines

Content overview

The articles contained in this section provide guidelines and suggestions for programmers working in and with the GNOME stack. This is intended for programmers to know about the development processes, conventions and philosophies behind GNOME applications and the stack of libraries supporting them. By knowing “the way things are done” in the GNOME ecosystem, we hope that programmers will find use of GNOME APIs and development of new applications easier and more natural, and will produce code which is legible and maintainable over a long period of time by a diverse team of contributors.
