How to contribute to Codecrypt?

  1. Fork and add a feature or a correction
  2. Check that the feature/correction is applicable (see below)
  3. Check that the code is in a good shape (also below)
  4. Send pull request
  5. Profit

Applicable features

  • All cryptography should be post-quantum (this mainly removes group-based asymmetric primitives)
  • The program is strictly off-line, almost-non-interactive, commandline only
  • Algorithms that are not mainstream are better
  • Less code is always better
  • Less magic is always better

Good shape of the code

  • Compile with -Wall
  • Format the code using astyle --style=linux -xl -xk -pdtLnU -M80
  • Try to follow similar naming conventions as the rest of the project
  • Automated memory management is always better
  • Use a modern C++ (unlike what codecrypt started with)
