Get Started!

Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up deck-chores for local development.

  1. Fork the deck-chores repo on GitHub.

  2. Clone your fork locally:

    $ git clone
  3. Install your local copy and developemnt tools into a virtualenv. Assuming you have pew installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:

    $ cd deck-chores
    $ pew new -p $(which python) -a $(pwd) deck-chores
    $ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
    $ python develop
  4. Create a branch for the scope of your issue or feature:

    $ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

    Now you can make your changes locally.

5a. When you’re done making changes, reformat the code with black and check

that your changes pass flake8 and the tests:

$ make black
$ make test

5b. If you want to run a container for testing purposes:

$ make run-dev
  1. Commit your changes and push your branch to GitHub:

    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes."
    $ git push
  2. Submit a pull request through the GitHub website.

Pull Request Guidelines

Before you submit a pull request, check that it meets these guidelines:

  1. The pull request should include tests.
  2. The code must be formatted with black (see 6. above).
  3. If the pull request adds functionality, the docs should be updated.
