If you have made improvements to a Skylark block, have developed new blocks, or even a whole new product that you think we might want to merge into the main library, you can either create a fork on Github, or just send your files to us, along with a description.

Join the Slack community

There is also a WikiHouse Slack community, where you can connect with others who are developing, testing or using WikiHouse technology, and share ideas and updates. All are welcome.
