Python Guideline Enforcement¶
All code has to pass the pep8 style guideline to merge into OpenStack, to validate the code against these guidelines you can run:
$ tox -e pep8
It is strongly encouraged to run the unit tests locally under one or more test environments prior to submitting a patch. To run all the recommended environments sequentially and pep8 style guideline run:
You can also selectively pick specific test environments by listing your chosen environments after a -e flag:
$ tox -e py36,py38,pep8
Tox sets up virtual environment and installs all necessary dependencies. Sharing the environment with devstack testing is not recommended due to conflicting configuration with system dependencies.
