Bug Report Guidelines

Bug Report Guidelines#

This document describes how to write a good Weex bug report. Good bug reports help developers to classify the priority and severity of a bug properly, which helps the bug get fixed as soon as possible. The more specific information you provide, the better your bug gets understood.

Bug Report General Principles#

  • Avoid duplicates: Search before you file a new one!
  • Always test the latest available version before submitting a bug.
  • One bug per report.
  • State useful facts, not opinions or complaints.

How to Write a Good Bug Report#

A good bug report should include the following information:


The goal of title is to make the report searchable and uniquely identifiable.

A bad example: List Crash

A good Example: List Crashes when deleting a header


Weex Version: Please identify the version of WeexSDK or Weex Playground or weex-toolkit you were using when the bug occurred

Device environment: Please identify the device model, platform and OS version. e.g. , iPhone 6, iOS 10.3.


The overview or description of a bug report is to explain the bug in detail, including:

  • Justifications of why this is a bug
  • dotwe demo that can reproduce the bug
  • Screenshots for visual bugs
  • Stack traces for crash bugs
  • Console logs or error messages which are relevant in the bug

Steps to Reproduce#

The aim to provide the reproducible steps is to enable developers to reproduce the bug in their own environment. Here’s an example:

Step 1: Load the demo using Weex Playground

Step 2: Scroll to the bottom of the list

Step 3: Click the red button to delete a header

Test Results#

The test results, including Expected Result and Actual Result, will tell developers what’s wrong. Expected Result describes what should happen, and Actual Result describes what actually happens.
