Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up firepit for local development.
Fork the firepit repo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:your_name_here/firepit.git
Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have pyenv installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:
$ cd firepit/ $ pyenv virtualenv python-3.6.8 firepit $ pyenv local firepit $ make setup
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 linting and the tests (this will be done automatically with a git pre-commit hook):
$ make lint $ make test
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 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9.
To run a subset of tests:
$ pytest tests.test_firepit
A reminder for the maintainers on how to deploy. Make sure all your changes are committed (including an entry in HISTORY.rst). Then run:
$ bump2version patch # possible: major / minor / patch $ git push $ git push --tags
