Flask-FS is open-source and very open to contributions.

Submitting issues

Issues are contributions in a way so don’t hesitate to submit reports on the official bugtracker.

Provide as much informations as possible to specify the issues:

  • the flask-fs version used
  • a stacktrace
  • installed applications list
  • a code sample to reproduce the issue

Submitting patches (bugfix, features, …)

If you want to contribute some code:

  1. fork the official Flask-FS repository
  2. create a branch with an explicit name (like my-new-feature or issue-XX)
  3. do your work in it
  4. rebase it on the master branch from the official repository (cleanup your history by performing an interactive rebase)
  5. submit your pull-request

There are some rules to follow:

  • your contribution should be documented (if needed)
  • your contribution should be tested and the test suite should pass successfully
  • your code should be mostly PEP8 compatible with a 120 characters line length
  • your contribution should support both Python 2 and 3 (use tox to test)

You need to install some dependencies to develop on Flask-FS:

$ pip install -e .[dev]

An Invoke is provided to simplify the common tasks:

$ inv -l
Available tasks:

  all      Run tests, reports and packaging
  clean    Cleanup all build artifacts
  cover    Run tests suite with coverage
  dist     Package for distribution
  doc      Build the documentation
  qa       Run a quality report
  start    Start the middlewares (docker)
  stop     Stop the middlewares (docker)
  test     Run tests suite
  tox      Run tests against Python versions

You can launch invoke without any parameters, it will:

  • start docker middlewares containers (ensure docker and docker-compose are installed)
  • execute tox to run tests on all supported Python version
  • build the documentation
  • execute flake8 quality report
  • build a distributable wheel

Or you can execute any task on demand. By exemple, to only run tests in the current Python environment and a quality report:

$ inv test qa
