Get Started!

Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up kafka-connect-manager for local development.

  1. Fork the kafka-connect-manager repo on GitHub.
  2. Clone your fork locally:
$ git clone https://github.com/lsst-sqre/kafka-connect-manager.git
  1. Install your local copy into a virtualenv.
$ cd kafka-connect-manager
$ virtualenv venv --python python3
$ source venv/bin/activate
$ python setup.py develop
  1. Create a branch for local development:
$ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

Now you can make your changes locally.

  1. When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass flake8 and the tests.
$ python setup.py test
  1. 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
    
  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. If the pull request adds functionality, the docs should be updated. Put your new functionality into a function with a docstring, and add the feature to the list in README.rst.
  3. The pull request should work for Python 3. Check https://travis-ci.org/lsst-sqre/kafka-connect-manager/pull_requests and make sure that the tests pass.

Deploying

A reminder for the maintainers on how to deploy. Make sure all your changes are committed (including an entry in HISTORY.rst). Then run:

$ bumpversion patch # possible: major / minor / patch
$ git push
$ git push --tags

Travis will then deploy to PyPI if tests pass.
