Development workflow#

For the detailed explanation of the development workflow, please visit the corresponding links below.

  1. Fork and clone.

    • Go to the RAD-tools repository and click on the "Fork" button. Now you have your own copy of the RAD-tools repository in your GitHub account.

    • Clone your copy of the repository to your local machine:

      • If you are using ssh-key:

        git clone git@github.com:your-username/rad-tools.git
        
      • If you are not using ssh-key:

        git clone https://github.com/your-username/rad-tools.git
        
    • Change the directory:

      cd rad-tools
      
    • Add the upstream repository:

      git remote add upstream https://github.com/adrybakov/rad-tools.git
      
  2. Set up the environment.

    We recommend to use virtual environment. Once the virtual environment is created, you can install requirements:

    • For the package development:

      pip install -r requirements.txt
      
    • For the docs:

      pip install -r docs/requirements.txt
      
    • For the tests:

      pip install -r utest/requirements.txt
      
  3. Develop the contribution.

    • Create a dedicated branch for your feature, that you are going to develop:

      git checkout -b feature-name
      
    • Develop your contribution. Commit your progress locally (git-add and git-commit). Use meaningful commit messages. Write tests <contribute_tests>. Write documentation <contribute_docs>.

  4. Submit your contribution.

    • Push the changes to your forked repository:

      git push origin feature-name
      
    • Go to your forked repository on GitHub and click on the green "Compare & pull request" button. Describe your contribution and submit the pull request. Please mention the issue number if it is related to any.

  5. Review and merge.

    • Once the pull request is submitted, the code will be reviewed. If there are any comments, please fix them.

    • Once the pull request is approved, it will be merged to the stable or dev branch.
