Getting Involved

Welcome to the DokuWiki community.

This page is intended to help you find places where you can contribute to DokuWiki and get a warm fuzzy feeling for doing something wonderful. Some things you can do on your own, while others are better suited to team work.

The mailing list is a good place to get assistance and find other people doing things you would like to contribute to. DokuWiki developers can also be found in the IRC channel. Working together is more fun, so we try to organize things with teams and developer meetups in IRC at least once a month.


The user manual is always in need of wiki gardening. Even if you only have used DokuWiki for a short time there is much to do.

(The Community Team)


We are always looking for more developers who help to fix bugs, clean up the code or implement new features. A large part of the development discussion happens in the irc meetups, this is a good occasion to introduce yourself but also don't forget to subscribe to the mailing list.

Graphic Designers

Our goal is not only to create great software but also to have it look nice. For that we need Photoshop/Gimp/Inkscape wizards with a keen eye for design. We often have requirements for custom icons or need help with making an interface work visually and usability wise. Larger tasks like completely redesigning a template are rare, but happen once in a while.
