Get Started!

Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up pycon-apac-2014 for local development.

  1. Fork the pycon-apac-2014 repo on Bitbucket.

  2. Clone your fork locally:

    $ git clone
  3. Bootstrap your local PyCon APAC 2014 development. See Setting up environment in README.rst.

  4. Create a branch for local development:

    $ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

    Now you can make your changes locally.

  5. When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass flake8 and the tests, including testing other Python versions with tox:

    $ flake8 pycon-apac-2014 tests
    $ py.test tests
    $ tox

    To get flake8 and tox, just pip install them into your virtualenv.

  6. Commit your changes and push your branch to Bitbucket:

    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes."
    $ git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
  7. Submit a pull request through the Bitbucket 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 2.7 and 3.3.


To run a subset of tests:

$ py.test tests
