Development Installation


Python 3.5+


Some packages also needs python3.5-dev package (ubuntu) or similar

Development install

After forking or checking out:

$ cd loafer/
$ python develop
$ pip install -r requirements/local.txt
$ pip install -r requirements/test.txt
$ pre-commit install

The requirements folder are only used for development, so we can easily install/track dependencies required to run the tests using continuous integration platforms.

The official entrypoint for distritubution is the which also contains the minimum requirements to execute the tests.

It’s important to execute develop not only to install the main dependencies, but also to include loafer CLI in our environment.

Running tests:

$ make test

Generating documentation:

$ cd docs/
$ make html

To configure AWS access, check boto3 configuration or export (see boto3 envvars):

Check the Settings section to see specific configurations.
