Look through the GitHub issues for features. Anything tagged with "feature"
is open to whoever wants to implement it.

Write Documentation
===================

python-taiga could always use more documentation, whether as part of the
official python-taiga docs, in docstrings, or even on the web in blog posts,
articles, and such.

Submit Feedback
===============

The best way to send feedback is to file an issue at https://github.com/nephila/python-taiga/issues.

If you are proposing a feature:

* Explain in detail how it would work.
* Keep the scope as narrow as possible, to make it easier to implement.

Ready to contribute? Here's how to set up ``python-taiga`` for local development.

1. Fork the ``python-taiga`` repo on GitHub.
2. Clone your fork locally::

    $ git clone git@github.com:your_name_here/python-taiga.git

3. Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development::

    $ mkvirtualenv taiga
    $ cd taiga/
    $ pip install -e .

4. Create a branch for local development::

    $ git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

Now you can make your changes locally.

5. When you're done making changes, check that your changes pass flake8 and the
tests, including testing other Python versions with tox::

    $ tox

To get tox, just pip install them into your virtualenv.

6. Commit your changes and push your branch to GitHub::

    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes."
    $ git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

7. Submit a pull request through the GitHub website.

Development tips
----------------

This project allows you to use `pre-commit <https://pre-commit.com/>`_ to ensure an easy compliance
to the project code styles.

If you want to use it, install it globally (for example with ``pip3 install --user precommit``,
but check `installation instruction <https://pre-commit.com/#install>`_.
When first cloning the project ensure you install the git hooks by running ``pre-commit install``.

From now on every commit will be checked against our code style.

Check also the available tox environments with ``tox -l``: the ones not marked with a python version number are tools
to help you work on the project buy checking / formatting code style, running docs etc.

Testing tips
------------
You can test your project using any specific version of python.

For example ``tox -epy37`` runs the tests on python 3.7.

   Documentation must be added in ``README.rst`` file, and must include usage
   information for the end user.
   In case of public API method, add extended docstrings with full parameters
   description and usage example.
#. Add a changes file in ``changes`` directory describing the contribution in

   File must be named as ``<issue-number>.<type>`` with type being:

   * ``.feature``: For new features.
   * ``.bugfix``: For bug fixes.
   * ``.doc``: For documentation improvement.
   * ``.removal``: For deprecation or removal of public API.
   * ``.misc``: For general issues.

   Check `towncrier`_ documentation for more details.

   Check the CI and make sure that the tests pass for all supported versions.

Release a version
=================

#. Update authors file
#. Merge ``develop`` on ``master`` branch
#. Bump release via task: ``inv tag-release (major|minor|patch)``
#. Update changelog via towncrier: ``towncrier --yes``
#. Commit changelog with ``git commit --amend`` to merge with bumpversion commit
#. Create tag ``git tag <version>``
#. Push tag to github
