Hacking on Thumbor¶
So you want to contribute with thumbor? Welcome onboard!
There are a few things you’ll need in order to properly start hacking on it.
First step is to fork it and create your own clone of thumbor.
We seriously advise you to use virtualenv since it will keep your environment clean of thumbor’s dependencies and you can choose when to “turn them on”.
You’ll also need python >= 3.7 and python poetry.
Installing poetry should be as easy as
pip install poetry, but you can find more about it in their website.
Other than that, you’ll also need redis-server <https://redis.io>` installed (for queued detector unit tests).
Initializing the Environment¶
Once you’ve created your virtualenv, and installed poetry, make sure you can use poetry:
$ poetry --version Poetry version 1.0.3
You should see something similar. After that we just need to download all python packages with:
$ make setup
Running the Tests¶
Running the tests is as easy as:
$ make test
You should see the results of running your tests after an instant.
If you are experiencing “Too many open files” errors while running the tests, try increasing the number of open files per process, by running this command:
$ ulimit -S -n 2048
Read http://superuser.com/questions/433746/is-there-a-fix-for-the-too-many-open-files-in-system-error-on-os-x-10-7-1 for more info on this.
Linting your code¶
Even if that’s the case, don’t forget to run
make flake pylint before commiting and fixing any issues you find. That way you won’t get a request for doing so in your PR.
After hacking and testing your contribution, it is time to make a pull request. Make sure that your code is already integrated with the master branch of thumbor before asking for a pull request.
To add thumbor as a valid remote for your repository:
$ git remote add thumbor git://github.com/thumbor/thumbor.git
To merge thumbor’s master with your fork:
$ git pull thumbor master
If there was anything to merge, just run your tests again. If they pass, send a pull request.
