How to contribute

I like to encourage you to contribute to the repository.

This should be as easy as possible for you but there are a few things to consider when contributing. The following guidelines for contribution should be followed if you want to submit a pull request.

How to prepare

  • You need a GitHub account
  • Submit an issue ticket for your issue if there is no one yet.
    • Describe the issue and include steps to reproduce if it's a bug.
    • Ensure to mention the earliest version that you know is affected.
  • If you are able and want to fix this, fork the repository on GitHub

Make Changes

  • In your forked repository, create a topic branch for your upcoming patch. (e.g. feature/new-backend or bug/auth-fails)
    • Usually this is based on the master branch.
    • Create a branch based on master git branch bug/auth-fails master then checkout the new branch with git checkout bug/auth-fails. Please avoid working directly on the master branch.
  • Make commits of logical units and describe them properly.
  • Make sure you stick to PEP8 coding style that is used already.
  • If possible, submit tests to your patch / new feature so it can be tested easily.
  • Assure nothing is broken by running all the tests.
  • Add a meaningful entry to the CHANGELOG.md document.

Submit Changes

  • Push your changes to a topic branch in your fork of the repository.
  • Open a pull request to the original repository and choose the right original branch you want to patch.
  • If not done in commit messages (which you really should do) please reference and update your issue with the code changes. But please do not close the issue yourself.
  • Even if you have write access to the repository, do not directly push or merge pull-requests. Let another team member review your pull request and approve.
