git clone https://github.com/scikit-hep/pyhf.git
and install all necessary packages for development
python -m pip install --ignore-installed -U -e .[complete]
Then setup the Git pre-commit hook for Black by running
A function-scoped fixture called
datadir exists for a given test module
which will automatically copy files from the associated test modules data
directory into a temporary directory for the given test execution. That is, for
example, if a test was defined in
test_schema.py, then data files located
test_schema/ will be copied to a temporary directory whose path is made
available by the
datadir fixture. Therefore, one can do:
def test_patchset(datadir): data_file = open(datadir.join('test.txt')) ...
which will load the copy of
text.txt in the temporary directory. This also
works for parameterizations as this will effectively sandbox the file
pyhf tests packaging and distributing by publishing each commit to
master to TestPyPI.
In addition, installation of the latest test release from TestPyPI can be tested
python -m pip install --extra-index-url https://test.pypi.org/simple/ --pre pyhf
This adds TestPyPI as an additional package index to search
PyPI will still be the default package index
pip will attempt to install
from for all dependencies.
Publishing to PyPI and TestPyPI
is automated through the PyPA’s PyPI publish GitHub Action
pyhf Tag Creator GitHub Actions workflow.
A release can be created from any PR created by a core developer by adding a
bumpversion tag to it that corresponds to the release type:
Once the PR is tagged with the label, the GitHub Actions bot will post a comment
with information on the actions it will take once the PR is merged. When the PR
has been reviewed, approved, and merged, the Tag Creator workflow will automatically
create a new release with
bumpversion and then deploy the release to PyPI.
