Contribute to sugardough

To contribute to sugardough development:

  1. Clone this repository

  2. Create a virtualenv.

  3. Install development requirements using pip:

    $ pip install -r requirements.txt
  4. Update the template directory, and cookiecutter.json as well with new variables if needed.

  5. Run the regeneration script that auto-creates a test site:

    $ ./bin/
  6. Launch the test site to see your changes:

    $ cd test_project/sugardough
    $ docker-compose up
  7. Git commit changes.

  8. Pull request!

The command can also watch for changes and auto-regenerate the test project:

$ ./bin/ --watch

If you want the test project to use a different value for a variable than the default defined in cookiecutter.json, add the value to your ~/.cookiecutterrc file:

    project_name: "Foo Bar"


  • If you want to change the rules for PEP8, go and edit the setup.cfg file.

  • If you want to use MySQL instead of PostgreSQL (which is default), edit the generated requirements.txt file and remove the lines about psycopg2 then use peep to add the version of MySQL-python you want to use. You will also need to edit the .travis.yml file accordingly.

  • if you want to use pytest add in requirements.txt pytest, py, cov-core and pytest-django. For test coverage you'll also have to add pytest-cov. Next you'll need to edit the .travis.yml file and edit the script part. Instead of coverage run test it py.test --cov=sugardough.

  • Dockerfile uses Python 3. If you want Python 2 change the following line

    apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends build-essential python3 python3-dev python3-pip \


    apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends build-essential python python-dev python-pip

    and remove the next two lines starting with RUN update-alternatives.
