Get Involved

Lagom is Approaching EOL

This project will only receive security patches until July 1, 2024, at that point the project will no longer receive any additional patches.

If you are an existing customer of Lightbend and we have not yet contacted you, please reach out to Support.

We recommend migrating any existing work to:

  • Akka for deeply customized projects with complex infrastructure needs. Akka now contains the vast majority of Lagom features.
  • Kalix for a managed scalable environment with an abstraction above the Akka framework layer to allow you to focus only on business logic.

Report bugs

Bug reports help Lagom improve, so please report any issues you have! Lagom uses GitHub to track issues. When you report bugs, make sure you include lots of detail, including reproducible tests, example code or anything else you think might help.

Even if you're not ready to fix issues yourself just yet, you can help out by verifying issues that have been reported by others. Look for issues tagged with the "help wanted" label. You can assist by looking at these issues and doing some checking to confirm whether they're bugs or not. You could provide reproducible tests or a sample project, or even just ask the original reporter for more information.

Patch the core

Lagom's code and documentation is hosted on GitHub. Lagom development is discussed on the Lagom contributers Gitter channel. Here you can talk to the Lagom contributors about features and improvements for Lagom.

You're welcome to work on any feature you like — Lagom is open source after all! — but if you'd like some good ideas, look for issues tagged with the "help wanted" or "good first issue" labels. These issues are ready and waiting for volunteers to pick them up.
