There are many ways in which you can contribute to the development of the library:
- Give us a Star on Github - you know you want to. ;)
- Using http4k to build something? Get in touch and tell everyone about it, or even just us!
- Sponsor us! The http4k team build the library out of love for software engineering and the OpenSource community, but running a project of this size is not without it's costs. Please see below for sponsorship options to help us keep the project running.
- Get help! The http4k team have produced a reasonable amount of training materials and are available for onsite or remote consulting engagements to help companies get the most out of the library.
If there are any message format library or templating engine bindings that you'd like to see supported, then please feel free to suggest them or provide a PR.

- For issues, please describe giving as much detail as you can - including version and steps to recreate
- At the moment, PRs should be sent to the master branch - this might change in future so check back everytime!
- Source/binary compatibility always must be kept as far as possible - this is a must for minor and patch versions
- PR changes should have test coverage. Note that we use Junit 5 as a test engine - which uses new
- All the PRs must pass the GitHub CI jobs before merging them
Testing with default settings is required when push changes. Note that we currently build against Java 21 (jEnv is good for managing multiple java versions):
