The USB-ISS Python Library could always use more documentation, whether as part of the official USB-ISS Python Library 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/sneakypete81/usb_iss/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 usb_iss for local development.
Fork the usb_iss repo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone email@example.com:your_name_here/usb_iss.git $ cd usb_iss
Install your local clone (plus developer dependencies) into a virtualenv and activate it:
$ pip install virtualenv $ make develop $ . .venv/bin/activate
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 test-all
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.
The pull request should work for Python 3.5 and later. Check https://travis-ci.org/sneakypete81/usb_iss/pull_requests and make sure that the tests pass for all supported Python versions.
To run the tests in the default python environment quickly:
$ make test
A reminder for the maintainers on how to deploy:
$ # Update CHANGELOG.rst $ bumpversion [major|minor|patch] $ git push $ git push --tags
Travis will then deploy to PyPI if tests pass.
