Getting help

How to engage with the Pants community.


The best place to get help is in the Pants project's Slack workspace. You can join using this link.

There are various channels, but the #general channel is a good place for most questions. A friendly person may then point you to an even better channel for your specific question.

Mailing list

You can join the [email protected] mailing list here. This is used mostly for announcements and for us to solicit user feedback.
