PEP8 checking should pass for all Climate code. You may check it using the following command:
tox -e pep8
Also you should keep your code clear using more code style checkings via pylint:
tox -e pylint
If you'll see any pep8/pylint errors in your code, it's mandatory to fix them before sending your change on review.
Climate repositories have unit tests that are run on all submitted code, and it is recommended for developers to execute them themselves to catch regressions early. Developers are also expected to keep the test suite up-to-date with any submitted code changes.
Unit tests might be ran in TOX environment via commands:
tox -e py27 tox -e py26
for Python 2.7 and Python 2.6 accordingly.
Currently Climate docs are partially written on OpenStack wiki pages, and partially using Sphinx / RST located in the main repo in doc directory. In future all of them will be moved to Sphinx / RST (now these docs cannot be published on readthedocs.org, because there is already existing climate project created on it. Now Climate ATCs are voting to choose new name for Climate project and then all docs will be moved to new readthedocs project).
To build Sphinx / RST docs locally run the following command:
tox -e docs
After it you can access generated docs in doc/build/ directory, for example, main page - doc/build/html/index.html.
