Development

If you wish to contribute to this project, then you should fork the repository found here:

https://github.com/Simplistix/mailinglogger

Once that has been done and you have a checkout, you can follow these instructions to perform various development tasks:

Setting up a virtualenv

The recommended way to set up a development environment is to turn your checkout into a virtualenv and then install the package in editable form as follows:

$ virtualenv .
$ bin/pip install -U -e .[test,build]

Running the tests

Once you’ve set up a virtualenv, the tests can be run as follows:

$ source bin/activate
$ pytest

Building the documentation

The Sphinx documentation is built by doing the following from the directory containing setup.py:

$ source bin/activate
$ cd docs
$ make html

To check that the description that will be used on PyPI renders properly, do the following:

$ python setup.py --long-description | rst2html.py > desc.html

The resulting desc.html should be checked by opening in a browser.

To check that the README that will be used on GitHub renders properly, do the following:

$ cat README.rst | rst2html.py > readme.html

The resulting readme.html should be checked by opening in a browser.

Making a release

To make a release, just update the version in setup.py, and push to https://github.com/cjw296/sybil and Carthorse should take care of the rest.
