LibreTime is run by volunteers who write code and manage the project in their spare time. Financial contributions help us pay for our domain and back-end infrastructure. It can also be used to cover the costs of development for important features and conference attendance. If you wish to contribute financially, you can do so through our OpenCollective.


LibreTime can run in over 15 different languages due to the gracious help of our volunteers. Is your language not supported? Follow this guide to add your language to LibreTime!

Write documentation

One of the simplest ways to get started contributing to a project is through improving documentation. LibreTime is constantly evolving, this means that sometimes our documentation has gaps. You can help by adding missing sections, editing the existing content so it is more accessible or creating new content (tutorials, FAQs, etc).

Issues pertaining to the documentation are usually marked with the Documentation label.

Our site is built by Jekyll, which has an installation guide here to help get you started. After cloning our repo locally, enter the docs/ directory and run

bundle install
jekyll serve
