Contributions

Poetry (Virtual Environments & Dependency Management)

You can easily install Poetry on your machine and then run poetry install from the root of this repository to have poetry automatically create a virtual environment and install any Python based dependencies for the project (Including all development dependencies like black and beautysh).

Black (Code Formatting - Python)

If making changes to any Python code, make sure to run black on the code. The correct black version should have been installed after having ran poetry install.

Beautysh (Code Formatting - Bash)

If making changes to any bash files (i.e files/init), please run beautysh on that file and re-test your changes. If it still works, you can submit your PR.
