Developer Guide


To install the development version:

>> git clone .
>> cd ipypublish

and either use the pre-written Conda development environment (recommended):

>> conda env create -n ipub_testenv -f conda_dev_env.yaml python=3.6
>> conda activate ipub_testenv
>> pip install --no-deps -e .

or install all via pip:

>> pip install -e .[tests]


Build Status Coverage Status

The following will discover and run all unit test:

>> cd ipypublish
>> pytest -v

Coding Style Requirements

The code style is tested using flake8, with the configuration set in .flake8, and code should be formatted with black.

Installing with ipypublish[code_style] makes the pre-commit package available, which will ensure these tests are passed by reformatting the code and testing for lint errors before submitting a commit. It can be set-up by:

>> cd ipypublish
>> pre-commit install

Optionally you can run black and flake8 separately:

>> black path/to/file
>> flake8

Editors like VS Code also have automatic code reformat utilities, which can check and adhere to this standard.


The documentation can be created locally by:

>> cd ipypublish/docs
>> make clean
>> make  # or make debug
