- Detailed steps to reproduce the bug.
Look through the GitHub issues for bugs. Anything tagged with “bug” and “help wanted” is open to whoever wants to implement it.
Look through the GitHub issues for features. Anything tagged with “enhancement” and “help wanted” is open to whoever wants to implement it. Those that are tagged with “first-timers-only” is suitable for those getting started in open-source software.
Geomancer could always use more documentation, whether as part of the official Geomancer docs, in docstrings, or even on the web in blog posts, articles, and such.
The best way to send feedback is to file an issue at https://github.com/thinkingmachines/geomancer/issues.
If you are proposing a feature:
- Explain in detail how it would work.
- Keep the scope as narrow as possible, to make it easier to implement.
- Remember that this is a volunteer-driven project, and that contributions are welcome :)
Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up geomancer for local development.
Fork the geomancer repo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone email@example.com:your_name_here/geomancer.git
Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:
$ cd geomancer/ $ make venv # Creates a virtual environment $ make dev # Installs development requirements
For windows users, you can do the following:
$ cd geomancer $ python -m venv venv $ venv\Scripts\activate $ pip install pip-tools $ pip install -r requirements.txt $ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
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. In addition, ensure that your code is formatted using black:
$ flake8 geomancer tests $ black geomancer tests $ pytest -m "not bqtest and not slow" -v
To get flake8, black, and tox, just pip install them into your virtualenv. If you wish, you can add pre-commit hooks for both flake8 and black to make all formatting easier.
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 3.5, and above. Check https://cloud.drone.io/thinkingmachines/geomancer/ and make sure that the tests pass for all supported Python versions.
