Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up talisker for local development.
Fork the talisker repo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone email@example.com:your_name_here/talisker.git
run make with no arguments. This will create a virtualenv env in .env and install dependencies and run tests.
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:
$ make # runs python3 tests and lint $ make tox # runs all python tests and lint
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 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5, and for PyPy. Check https://travis-ci.org/canonical-ols/talisker/pull_requests and make sure that the tests pass for all supported Python versions.
