Getting Help

How to engage with the Pants community.

The Pants community is friendly, welcoming, and passionate about improving the craft of software engineering. If you need help with anything Pants-related, you've come to the right place. We'd love to hear from you!


The best place to become acquainted with Pants community members, exchange informal chat and ask quick questions is at the project's Slack. You can join using this link.

We encourage you to introduce yourself in the #welcome channel!


The best place to ask deeper technical questions or hold design discussions is via the project's GitHub Discussions. While questions, feedback, and design discussions are equally welcome on Slack, we encourage you to choose Discussions whenever it's likely other users would benefit from persistent access to the conversation. GitHub Discussions is indexed by search engines, and its content is retained long-term, so this is opportunity to help your fellow Pants users by making it easier for folks to discover supplementary technical information beyond the docs.

We encourage you to introduce yourself in the "welcome" category!
