Two Types of Contribution

As part of this initiative, Spryker recognizes two contribution types: Platform Contributions and Innovation Lab.

We expect to announce more information regarding a third channel, Commercial Contributions, later this year.

Platform Contributions

Platform Contributions are ecosystem-led contributions to be built into and enhance Spryker’s core product. These include bug fixes, core improvements, and documentation updates across Spryker’s product portfolio.

All Platform Contributions can be submitted as pull requests towards the dedicated GitHub repositories related to the Spryker GitHub organizations below.

Updating Documentation (SCCOS)

Spryker Documentation accepts contributions in the form of edits and new documents. 

To edit existing documents, contributors can use the “Edit on GitHub” button in Spryker Documentation and create pull requests with suggestions.

To create a new document, contributors can create pull requests directly to the relevant Spryker doc repository.

Alternatively, the following guides are available to advise on how to create pull requests toward documentation:
Edit Documentation via a Web Browser
Edit Documentation Locally

Innovation Lab

Innovation Lab contributions are ecosystem-led submissions demonstrating innovative but often experimental use cases built for use with Spryker. 

These include hackathon projects, tools, and customer & partner innovation ideas. They may be utilized in any part of the Spryker platform, including the products listed above.

There are two distinct ways to contribute to Innovation Lab:

1. Ask Spryker to create a repository within the Spryker Community & Innovation Lab GitHub organization

  • Request access by e-mailing community@spryker.com or post your request in the Community Projects CommerceQuest subforum.
  • Once you have access, begin your project and upload your first code!
  • And, of course, we encourage everyone to evaluate current projects, suggest improvements, or even submit pull requests!

2. Create an Innovation in your own organization

Contribution Guidelines need to be followed in both cases listed above.
Innovation Lab Documentation

Innovation Lab submissions are not ordinarily maintained by Spryker, with no commitment or legal obligation for this to take place.

Submission Review

Spryker endeavors to have all submissions acknowledged within two weeks. Submissions will be accepted or returned with feedback.

Rewards and Recognition

Spryker will be leveraging a point system to reward contributors. Points will accumulate to enable contributors to receive achievements and acknowledgments.

Bronze Badge: Shout-out in the CommerceQuest monthly newsletter.
Silver Badge: Spryker merchandise.
Gold Badge: Rewards to be revealed!
Diamond Badge: Rewards to be revealed!

Please include a link to your GitHub in your CommerceQuest profile so we can match contributors to users on our community platform.
