Contributing

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to netjsonconfig.

Follow these guidelines to speed up the process.

General contributing guidelines of OpenWISP

We highly recommend reading the general OpenWISP Contributing Guidelines to find out the conventions we use to maintain consistency and quality standards across the different OpenWISP modules.

Create a virtual environment

Please use a python virtual environment while developing your feature, it keeps everybody on the same page and it helps reproducing bugs and resolving problems.

We suggest you to use virtualenvwrapper for this task (consult install instructions in the virtualenvwrapper docs).

mkvirtualenv netjsonconfig  # create virtualenv

Fork repo and install your fork

Once you have forked this repository to your own github account or organization, install your own fork in your development environment:

git clone git@github.com:<your_fork>/netjsonconfig.git
cd netjsonconfig
workon netjsonconfig  # activate virtualenv
python setup.py develop

Ensure test coverage does not decrease

First of all, install the test requirements:

workon netjsonconfig  # activate virtualenv
pip install -r requirements-test.txt

When you introduce changes, ensure test coverage is not decreased with:

nose2 --with-coverage --coverage netjsonconfig

Follow the coding style conventions and run the QA checks

First of all, install the test requirements:

workon netjsonconfig  # activate virtualenv
pip install -r requirements-test.txt

Before committing your work, run openwisp-qa-format to format the code according to our python code conventions:

openwisp-qa-format

Then, you can run the QA checks with:

./run-qa-checks

Update the documentation

If you introduce new features or change existing documented behavior, please remember to update the documentation!

The documentation is located in the /docs directory of the repository.

To do work on the docs, proceed with the following steps:

workon netjsonconfig  # activate virtualenv
pip install sphinx
cd docs
make html
