Code of Conduct

A community consists out of many different people with different backgrounds, genders, races, opinions, and so forth. This means that sometimes conflicts can arise. To ensure a healthy community, all members of the community are subject to the Inko code of conduct. This code of conduct defines what we consider unacceptable behaviour, how we will respond to such behaviour, and how one can report conflicts to the project maintainers.

This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.

This Code of Conduct is adapted from:


  • We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of level of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or other similar characteristic.
  • Please avoid using overtly sexual nicknames or other nicknames that might detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all.
  • Please be kind and courteous. There‚Äôs no need to be mean or rude.
  • Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every design or implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous costs. There is seldom a right answer.
  • Please keep unstructured critique to a minimum. If you have solid ideas you want to experiment with, make a fork and see how it works.
  • Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
  • Unacceptable behaviour, as defined below, is not tolerated under any circumstances.

Unacceptable behaviour

The following is a non exhaustive list of what we consider unacceptable behaviour:

  • Violence, threats of violence or violent language directed against another person.
  • Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist or otherwise discriminatory jokes and language.
  • Posting or displaying sexually explicit or violent material.
  • Posting or threatening to post other people's personally identifying information ("doxing").
  • Personal insults, particularly those related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or disability.
  • Inappropriate photography, recording, or physical contact. You should have someone's consent before touching them.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention. This includes, sexualized comments or jokes; inappropriate touching, groping, and unwelcomed sexual advances.
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking or following (online or in person).
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
  • Sustained disruption of community events, including talks and presentations.
  • Spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other attention-stealing behavior is not welcome.

Reporting abuse

If you encounter abusive content such as issues and comments on GitHub, you can report these using the "Report content" feature, found under the ... menu (usually somewhere in the top right corner of a comment or issue).

If you wish to report content on our Discord server, please send a private message to one of the moderators.

For anything else you can either create an issue on GitHub, or contact one of the maintainers directly through Email.
