Development Environment

Code Formatting

Zambeze's code uses Black, a PEP 8 compliant code formatter, and Flake8, a code style guide enforcement tool. To install the these tools you simply need to run the following:

pip install flake8 black

Before every commit, you should run the following:

black .
flake8 .

If errors are reported by flake8, please fix them before commiting the code.

Running Tests

There are a few dependencies that need to be installed to run the pytest, if you installed the requirements.txt file then this should be covered as well.

pip install pytest

From the root directory using pytest we can run:

python3 -m pytest -m unit -sv

Some tests should only be run from the context of the GitLab runner these can be run with:

python3 -m pytest -m gitlab_runner -sv
