Python Versions

Python Version

The GoMSS_Nowcast package is developed and tested using Python 3.6.

Getting the Code

Mercurial on Bitbucket

Clone the code and documentation repository from Bitbucket with:

$ hg clone ssh://hg@bitbucket.org/gomss-nowcast/gomss_nowcast GoMSS_Nowcast


$ hg clone https://your_userid@bitbucket.org/gomss-nowcast/gomss_nowcast GoMSS_Nowcast

if you don’t have ssh key authentication set up on Bitbucket.

Development Environment

Setting up an isolated development environment using Conda is recommended. Assuming that you have Anaconda Python Distribution or Miniconda3 installed, you can create and activate an environment called gomss-nowcast that will have all of the Python packages necessary for development, testing, and building the documentation with the commands:

$ cd GoMSS_Nowcast
$ conda env create -f environment-dev.yaml
$ source activate gomss-nowcast
(gomss-nowcast)$ pip install --editable .

The --editable option in the pip install command above installs the GoMSS_Nowcast package from the cloned repo via symlinks so that the installed package will be automatically updated as the repo evolves.

To deactivate the environment use:

(gomss-nowcast)$ source deactivate

Coding Style

The uncompromising Python code formatter

The GoMSS_Nowcast package uses the black code formatting tool to maintain a coding style that is very close to PEP 8.

black is installed as part of the Development Environment setup.

To run black on the entire code-base use:

$ cd GoMSS_Nowcast
$ conda activate gomss-nowcast
(gomss-nowcast)$ black ./

in the repository root directory. The output looks something like:

All done! ✨ 🍰 ✨

Building the Documentation

Documentation Status

The documentation for the GoMSS_Nowcast package is written in reStructuredText and converted to HTML using Sphinx. Creating a Development Environment as described above includes the installation of Sphinx. Building the documentation is driven by the docs/Makefile. With your gomss-nowcast development environment activated, use:

(gomss-nowcast)$ (cd docs && make clean html)

to do a clean build of the documentation. The output looks something like:

rm -rf _build/*
sphinx-build -b html -d _build/doctrees   . _build/html
Running Sphinx v1.4.1

build succeeded.

Build finished. The HTML pages are in _build/html.

The HTML rendering of the docs ends up in docs/_build/html/. You can open the index.html file in that directory tree in your browser to preview the results of the build.

If you have write access to the repository on Bitbucket, whenever you push changes to Bitbucket the documentation is automatically re-built and rendered at https://gomss-nowcast-system.readthedocs.io/en/latest/.

Running the Unit Tests

The test suite for the GoMSS_Nowcast package is in GoMSS_Nowcast/tests/. The pytest tool is used for test parametrization and as the test runner for the suite.

With your gomss-nowcast development environment activated, use:

(gomss-nowcast)$ cd GoMSS_Nowcast/
(gomss-nowcast)$ py.test

to run the test suite. The output looks something like:

============================ test session starts ============================
platform linux -- Python 3.5.1, pytest-2.9.2, py-1.4.31, pluggy-0.3.1

======================== 6 passed in 0.001 seconds =========================

You can monitor what lines of code the test suite exercises using the coverage.py tool with the command:

(gomss-nowcast)$ cd GoMSS_Nowcast/
(gomss-nowcast)$ coverage run -m py.test

and generate a test coverage report with:

(gomss-nowcast)$ coverage report

to produce a plain text report, or

(gomss-nowcast)$ coverage html

to produce an HTML report that you can view in your browser by opening GoMSS_Nowcast/htmlcov/index.html.
