You will need to install all dependencies.
- Fork Cnchi
- Do your changes (use 0.16.x branch as base!)
Then, you can use the run script to test Cnchi. As this is a Installer, you will need to use a Virtual Machine or an additional harddisk to test it.
How to easy prepare a sane testing environment:
- Download Antergos ISO
- Create a new VM in Virtualbox, add the live iso and a virtual harddisk (two harddisks if you want to cache the downloaded packages)
- Run the VM
- Cnchi will open, close it.
- Remove Cnchi ISO version:
sudo rm -rf /usr/share/cnchi
- Install git:
sudo pacman -S git
- Install - Install your Cnchi version from your own repository:
cd /home/antergos git clone https://github.com/<username>/cnchi cd cnchi sudo ln -s /home/antergos/cnchi /usr/share/cnchi
- Create a screenshot of the VM (so you don't have to redo all this each time you want to test your changes).
- Run Cnchi and start testing!
If your tests are OK, you can then create your PR and push it here (against development branch, which now it's 0.16.x)
When creating a Pull Request (PR), please check that you follow the PEP8 style guide (you have a stylized presentation at pep8.org). You can use pycodestyle (former pep8) or pylint.org or whatever you prefer to check your python3 files.
Spaces are the preferred indentation method.
To start tinkering, we would recommend to check all open #issues and find one you find you will be able to start with (choose something that seems easy to do), so you feel familiar with cnchi's structure. You can find info about it at readthedocs
