Issue tracker

Please report any bugs or enhancement ideas using our issue tracker: . Also, feel free to ask any other project related questions there.


Getting Started

Assuming that you have Python and virtualenv installed, set up your environment and install the required dependencies:

$ git clone
$ cd botoflow
$ virtualenv venv
$ . venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ pip install -e .

Running Tests

You can run tests in all supported Python versions using tox. By default, it will run all of the unit tests, but you can also specify your own pytest options. Note that this requires that you have all supported versions of Python installed, otherwise you must pass -e or run the pytest command directly:

$ tox
$ tox test/unit/
$ tox -e py27,py34 test/integration

You can also run individual tests with your default Python version:

$ py.test -v test/unit

Generating Documentation

Sphinx is used for documentation. You can generate HTML locally with the following:

$ pip install -r requirements-docs.txt
$ cd docs
$ make html
