This page attempts to explain how the Redox OS community is organised and help you navigate it.

We follow the Rust Code Of Conduct for rules in all community/chat channels.


Matrix is the official way to talk with Redox OS team/community (these rooms are English-only, we don’t accept other languages because we don’t understand them).

Matrix has several different clients. Element is a commonly used choice.

(We recommend that you leave the “Join Requests” room after your entry on Redox space)


A bit more formal way of communication with fellow Redox devs, but a little less quick and convenient like the chat. Submit an issue when you run into problems compiling, testing, or just would like to discuss a certain topic, be it features, code style, code inconsistencies, minor changes and fixes, etc.

If you want to create an account, read this page.

If you have ready MRs (merge requests) you must send the links on the MRs room, before you join this room a request for a Matrix space invite must be sent on the Join Requests room.

That way your MR will not be forgotten or accumulate conflicts.

This is our historical forum with old/classic questions, it’s inactive and must be used for historical purposes, if you have a question, send on Matrix chat.


Redox talks given at various events and conferences.


Community outreach is an important part of Redox’s success. If more people know about Redox, then more contributors are likely to step in, and everyone can benefit from their added expertise. You can make a difference by writing articles, talking to fellow OS enthusiasts, or looking for communities that would be interested in knowing more about Redox.
