Contributing Guidelines#

First off, thanks for considering to contribute to this project!

These are mostly guidelines, not rules. Use your best judgment, and feel free to propose changes to this document in a pull request.

Git hooks#

We use git hooks through pre-commit to enforce and automatically check some “rules”. Please install them (pre-commit install) before to push any commit.

See the relevant configuration file: .pre-commit-config.yaml.

Code Style#

Make sure your code roughly follows PEP-8 and keeps things consistent with the rest of the code:

  • docstrings: sphinx-style is used to write technical documentation.

  • formatting: black is used to automatically format the code without debate.

  • sorted imports: isort is used to sort imports

  • static analisis: flake8 is used to catch some dizziness and keep the source code healthy.


The pattern is: {category}/{slugified-description}. Where:

  • category is the type of work. Can be: feature, bug, tooling, refactor, test, chore, release, hotfix, docs, ci, deploy or release-candidate.

  • slugified-description is the description of the work, slugified.

Example: feature/authentication-logic

Special branches#

  • master: the main branch.

  • archive/*: branches used to store legacy code for history reasons. Do not use them for new work.
