How to help#

You will be of invaluable help if you contribute to the documentation.

Such a contribution can be:

  • Indications of inaccuracies, errors, typos
  • Suggestions for editing specific sections
  • Making additions

You can report all this in discussions on GitHub, start issue, or write about it in our discord group.


Special thanks to those who are ready to offer help with the case and help in developing documentation, as well as translating it into other languages.

How to get started#

To develop the documentation, you don't even need to install the entire FastStream project as a whole.


  1. Clone the project repository
  2. Create a virtual environment
    python -m venv venv
  3. Activate it
    source venv/bin/activate
  4. Install documentation dependencies
    pip install ".[devdocs]"
  5. Go to the docs/ directory
  6. Start the local documentation server
    mkdocs serve

Now all changes in the documentation files will be reflected on your local version of the site. After making all the changes, you can issue a PR with them - and we will gladly accept it!
