Asking for help
- If you find a problem, first ask for help in the chat, then consider opening a issue.
- Please check existing or closed issues or PRs when thinking about opening a new one.
Opening a Pull Request
- Every PR should follow the PR template. PR template for hydrus can be found here.
- Code in PRs should be accurately compliant with PEP-8, checking code with
- Every method in the PR should have a compelling docstring in the format:
def test_method(arg1, arg2, ...): """ Description of what the method performs. Generic Notes to consider when running the method if any :param arg1: what kind of value is expected :param arg2: what kind of value is expected :return : what is returned or `None` """
- Every module is and should in future provide type annotations using
- Before opening a PR be sure that all the tests pass successfully. If any is failing for non-related reasons, annotate the test failure in the PR comment.
- Any change should be PRed first in
mastercan only receive merge from
- Everything should work and be tested for Python 3.5.2 and above.
- In general, no permission is needed to work on the code. Fork
developbranch and keep your downstream branch updated; when done submit a PR and ask for reviewing. PR is the natural place for code comparison and corrections. Code for issues with multiple PRs will be integrated at reviewing time.

hydrusis developed in
flaskbecause the applications we had in mind were mostly related to IoT and sensors, so it was supposed to be lightweight and functional. By the way we can consider also more structured options like having versions that works with Django or Pyramid.
