Get Started!

Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up tstoolbox for local development.

  1. Fork the tstoolbox repo on bitbucket at https://bitbucket.org/timcera/tstoolbox/fork.

  2. Clone your fork locally:

    $ git clone git@bitbucket.org:your_bitbucket_login/tstoolbox.git
    
  3. Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:

    $ mkvirtualenv tstoolbox
    $ cd tstoolbox
    $ python setup.py develop
    
  4. For testing you also need to install tox, coverage, and flake8:

    $ pip install tox
    $ pip install coverage
    $ pip install flake8
    
  5. Create a branch for local development:

    $ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
    

    Now you can make your changes locally.

  6. When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass flake8 and the tests, including testing other Python versions with tox:

    $ tox
    

    Bring the htmlcov/index.html file up into a browser to make sure that the code has appropriate test coverage.

  7. Commit your changes and push your branch to bitbucket:

    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes."
    $ git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
    
  8. Submit a pull request through the bitbucket website.

Pull Request Guidelines

Before you submit a pull request, check that it meets these guidelines:

  1. The pull request should include tests.

  2. 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.

  3. The pull request should work for Python 3.5, 3.6, 3.7
