RuboCop currently has several official & unofficial support channels. For questions, suggestions, and support refer to one of them.

Please, don’t use the support channels to report issues, as this makes them harder to track.

GitHub Discussions

These days our primary discussion board is here.

It’s a great place to share ideas, help other RuboCop users and just be up-to-date with interesting developments.


If you’re into chat you can drop by RuboCop’s Discord server. You can often find some RuboCop maintainers there and get some interesting news from the project’s kitchen.

Mailing List

The official mailing list is hosted at Google Groups. It’s a low-traffic list, so don’t be too hesitant to subscribe.


If you’re into IRC you can visit the #rubocop channel on Freenode. It’s not actively monitored by the RuboCop maintainers themselves, but still you can get support from other RuboCop users there.


We’re also encouraging users to ask RuboCop-related questions on StackOverflow.

When doing so you should use the RuboCop tag (ideally combined with the tag ruby).
