Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up
djangocms-blog for local development.
djangocms-blogrepo on GitHub.
Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone email@example.com:your_name_here/djangocms-blog.git
Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:
$ mkvirtualenv djangocms-blog $ cd djangocms-blog/ $ pip install -r requirements-test.txt $ pip install -e .
Create a branch for local development:
$ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
Now you can make your changes locally.
5. When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass flake8 and the tests, including testing other Python versions with tox:
To get tox, pip install it into your virtualenv.
Commit your changes and push your branch to GitHub:
$ git add . $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes." $ git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
Submit a pull request through the GitHub website.
This project allows you to use pre-commit to ensure an easy compliance to the project code styles.
If you want to use it, install it globally (for example with
pip3 install --user precommit,
but check installation instruction <https://pre-commit.com/#install>.
When first cloning the project ensure you install the git hooks by running
From now on every commit will be checked against our code style.
Check also the available tox environments with
tox -l: the ones not marked with a python version number are tools
to help you work on the project buy checking / formatting code style, running docs etc.
You can test your project using any specific combination of python, django and django cms.
tox -epy3.7-django30-cms37 runs the tests on python 3.7, Django 3.0 and django CMS 3.7.
As the project uses pytest as test runner, you can pass any pytest option by setting the
PYTEST_ARGS environment variable, usually by prepending to the
tox command. Example:
PYTEST_ARGS=" -s tests/test_plugins.py::PluginTest -p no:warnings" tox -epy3.7-django30-cms37
