Getting Involved

Open Source projects can always use more help. Fixing a problem, documenting a feature, adding translation in your language. If you have some time to spare and like to help us, here are the places to do so:

  • GitHub:
  • Mailing list:
  • Translations:


You can view documentation online at:


Or you can look at the docs/ directory in the repository.


Django Extensions is free and always will be. It is developed and maintained by developers in an Open Source manner. Any support is welcome. You could help by writing documentation, pull-requests, report issues and/or translations.

Please remember that nobody is paid directly to develop or maintain Django Extensions so we do have to divide our time between putting food on the table, family, this project and the rest of life :-)
