To begin developing Synse Server, you will first need your own copy of the source code. Fork the GitHub repo and clone it down to your local workspace.
It is recommended to use the following development tools:
tox: Create reproducible environments for testing, linting, and other development actions.
pyenv: Python version management - Synse Server requires Python 3.6 or greater.
docker: Build and run Synse Server in a containerized environment.
docker-compose: Define and run deployments for development and testing.
make: Run predefined targets that simplify various development actions and workflows.
To aid in the developer workflow, Makefile targets are provided for common development
tasks. To see what targets are provided, see the project
Makefile, or run
from the project repo root.
$ make help clean Clean up build and test artifacts cover Run unit tests and open the resulting HTML coverage report deps Update the frozen pip dependencies (requirements.txt) docker Build the docker image fmt Automatic source code formatting (isort, autopep8) github-tag Create and push a tag with the current version help Print Make usage information i18n Update the translations catalog lint Run linting checks on the project source code (isort, flake8, twine) test Run the unit tests version Print the version of Synse Server
It is recommended to run tests, formatting, and linting locally prior to pushing/opening a pull request. These steps, including building the package and docker image, are also run in CI. CI failures will prevent pull requests from being merged.
