Getting the source code
The source code is maintained on GitHub. To check out the main branch:
$ git clone https://github.com/dataflake/dataflake.fakeldap.git
You can also browse the code online at https://github.com/dataflake/dataflake.fakeldap
Preparing the development sandbox
The following steps only need to be done once to install all the tools and scripts needed for building, packaging and testing. First, create a Virtual environment. The example here uses Python 3.11, but any Python version supported by this package will work. Then install all the required tools:
$ cd dataflake.fakeldap
$ python3.11 -m venv .
$ bin/pip install -U pip wheel
$ bin/pip install -U setuptools zc.buildout tox twine
Running the tests
You can use
tox to run the unit and integration tests in this package. The
tox configuration can run the tests for all supported platforms.
You can read the entire long list of possible options on the
tox CLI interface documentation page, but the following examples
will get you started:
$ bin/tox -l # List all available environments
$ bin/tox -pall # Run tests for all environments in parallel
$ bin/tox -epy311 # Run tests on Python 3.11 only
$ bin/tox -elint # Run package sanity checks and lint the code
Building the documentation
tox is also used to build the Sphinx-based documentation. The
input files are in the docs subfolder and the documentation build step will
compile them to HTML. The output is stored in docs/_build/html/:
$ bin/tox -edocs
If the documentation contains doctests they are run as well.
