Setting up a development environment

To add features to the repository follow the following procedure to setup a working development environment.

Installation (Development)

Install the project and its dependencies to develop on the code.

Step 1 - install flit:

pip install flit

Step 2 - install the development code:

flit install --deps develop --symlink


Make sure to use the flit binary that is installed in your environment. You can check the correct path by running

which flit

Running tests

Run the unit-test suite to verify a correct setup.

Step 1 - Create a database

createuser -sP nwa
createdb orchestrator-core-test -O nwa

Step 2 - Run tests

pytest test/unit_tests

If you do not encounter any failures in the test, you should be able to develop features in the orchestrator-core.
