### Getting started

Welcome!

We have a bunch of documentation about how to develop Tor in the
doc/HACKING/ directory.  We recommend that you start with
doc/HACKING/README.1st.md , and then go from there.  It will tell
you how to find your way around the source code, how to get
involved with the Tor community, how to write patches, and much
more!
