Types of Contributions¶
Report bugs at https://github.com/paulross/cpip/issues.
If you are reporting a bug, please include:
- Your operating system name and version.
- Any details about your local setup that might be helpful in troubleshooting.
- 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.
cpip could always use more documentation, whether as part of the official cpip 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/paulross/cpip/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 cpip for local development.
Fork the cpip repo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone https://github.com/paulross/cpip.git
Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:
$ mkvirtualenv cpip $ cd cpip/ $ python setup.py develop
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:
$ flake8 cpip tests $ python setup.py test or py.test $ tox
To get flake8 and tox, just pip install them into your virtualenv.
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, 3.3 to 3.6, and for PyPy. Check https://travis-ci.org/paulross/cpip/pull_requests and make sure that the tests pass for all supported Python versions.
To run a subset of tests, for example to test
$ pytest -vs tests/unit/test_core/test_PpLexer.py
In the following example the version we are moving to, in
Major.Minor.Patch format, is
Current version should be something like
M.m.(p)rcX, for example
Change the version to
M.m.p in these places:
In src/cpip/__init__.py change
CPIP_VERSION = (0, 9, 7)
Update the history:
Update any Trove classifiers in setup.py, https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=list_classifiers
Build and Test¶
Build and test for Python 3.6:
$ . ~/venvs/CPIP36/bin/activate (CPIP36) $ python setup.py install (CPIP36) $ python setup.py test
And for Python 2.7
$ . ~/venvs/CPIP27/bin/activate (CPIP27) $ python setup.py install (CPIP27) $ python setup.py test
Build the docs HTML to test them, from an environment that has Sphinx:
(Sphinx) $ cd docs (Sphinx) $ make clean (Sphinx) $ make html
Commit and Tag¶
Commit, tag and push:
$ git add . $ git commit -m 'Release version 0.9.7' $ git tag -a v0.9.7 -m 'Version 0.9.7' $ git push $ git push origin v0.9.7
Prepare release to PyPi for Python 3.6:
Build the egg and the source distribution:
(CPIP36) $ python setup.py install sdist
And for Python 2.7
(CPIP27) $ python setup.py install
Check the contents of
dist/*, unpack into
tmp/ if you want:
$ cp dist/* tmp/ $ cd tmp/ $ unzip cpip-0.9.7-py2.7.egg -d py27egg $ unzip cpip-0.9.7-py3.6.egg -d py36egg $ tar -xzf cpip-0.9.7.tar.gz
Release to PyPi, https://pypi.python.org/pypi/cpip:
(CPIP36) $ twine upload dist/*
Prepare Next Release Candidate¶
Finally change the version to
M.m.(p+1)rc0, in this example
0.9.8rc0 in these places:
- src/cpip/__init__.py, also change
CPIP_VERSION = (0, 9, 8, 'rc0')
Commit and push:
$ git add . $ git commit -m 'Release candidate v0.9.8rc0' $ git push
