Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up flask_echelon for local development.
Fork the flask_echelon repo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:your_name_here/flask_echelon.git
Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:
$ mkvirtualenv flask_echelon $ cd flask_echelon/ $ python setup.py develop
Create a branch for local development:
$ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
Now you can make your changes locally.
When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass flake8 and the tests, including testing other Python versions with tox:
$ flake8 flask_echelon tests $ python setup.py test or py.test $ tox
To get flake8 and tox, just pip install them into your virtualenv.
Commit your changes and push your branch to GitHub:
$ git add . $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes." $ git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
Submit a pull request through the GitHub website.
Pull Request Guidelines¶
Before you submit a pull request, check that it meets these guidelines:
- The pull request should include tests.
- If the pull request adds functionality, the docs should be updated. Put your new functionality into a function with a docstring, and add the feature to the list in README.rst.
- The pull request should work for Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5, and for PyPy. Check https://travis-ci.org/jesseops/flask_echelon/pull_requests and make sure that the tests pass for all supported Python versions.
To run a subset of tests:
$ py.test tests.test_flask_echelon
