First, you should clone the GitHub repository and checkout the develop branch.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:adopy/adopy.git cd adopy git checkout develop
To manage a virtual environment for development, we uses Pipenv. Pipfile on the repository describes which packages to install for a virtual environment. You can create a virtual environment by running the command below:
# Install default and develop packages while skipping Pipfile.lock pipenv install --dev --skip-lock
Now you can activate the installed virtual environment. Code blocks on later sections assume this environment activated.
# Activate the virtual environment pipenv shell
The documentation is generated based on Sphinx. Sphinx provides its rich
features using reStructuredText files for its markup language. Thus, to get
benefits from Sphinx, this documentation website is created from
reStructuredText sources on
Basically, the official website (https://adopy.org) is automatically generated
from documentations in the Python codes on
/adopy and reStructuredText
master branch of the
repository. In other words, the documentations shown in the website are for the
stable version of ADOpy in
sphinx-autobuild, you can build the documentation and test it by
yourself. It can run a web server for documentation on http://localhost:8000,
as described below.
# Go to /docs directory cd docs # On Windows livehtml.bat # On macOS or Linux make livehtml
The basic process of ADOpy development follows the Gitflow workflow by Vincent
Driessen, which holds two main branches:
Only an exception is that we use
There are a bunch of great resources about Gitflow and we require you to read
at least one of them before proceeding.
If you want to contribute to ADOpy, you can start with forking the ADOpy repository in the GitHub. Before you start writing a code, please make a new issue for what you want to do. Then, following the Gitflow, you should make a proper branch to work with. We only allow feature branches for who is not authorized. If your job is done, you can make a pull request on the ADOpy repository and let us review it before merging it.
