Django.js is open-source and very open to contributions.

Submitting issues

Issues are contributions in a way so don’t hesitate to submit reports on the official bugtracker.

Provide as much informations as possible to specify the issues:

  • the Django.js version used
  • a stacktrace
  • installed applications list
  • ...

Submitting patches (bugfix, features, ...)

If you want to contribute some code:

  1. fork the official Django.js repository
  2. create a branch with an explicit name (like my-new-feature or issue-XX)
  3. do your work in it
  4. rebase it on the master branch from the official repository (cleanup your history by performing an interactive rebase)
  5. submit your pull-request

There are some rules to follow:

  • your contribution should be documented (if needed)
  • your contribution should be tested and the test suite should pass successfully
  • your code should be mostly PEP8 compatible with a 120 characters line length
  • your contribution should support both Python 2 and 3 (use tox to test)

You need to install some dependencies to hack on Django.js:

$ pip install -r requirements/develop.pip

A Makefile is provided to simplify the common tasks:

$ make
Makefile for Django.js

   make serve            Run the test server
   make test             Run the test suite
   make coverage         Run a caoverage report from the test suite
   make pep8             Run the PEP8 report
   make pylint           Run the pylint report
   make doc              Generate the documentation
   make minify           Minify all JS files with yuglify
   make dist             Generate a distributable package
   make clean            Remove all temporary and generated artifacts

To ensure everything is fine before submission, use tox. It will run the test suite on all the supported Python version and ensure the documentation is generating.

$ pip install tox
$ tox

You also need to ensure your code is PEP8 compliant (following the project rules: see pep8.rc file):

$ make pep8

Don’t forget client-side code and tests.

You can run the javascript test suite in the browser (http://localhost:8000). Javascript tests are run in the test suite too, but it runs on the minified version of the javascript libary.

You can use the Makefile minify task that minify the javascript:

$ make minify test


minification use yuglify so you need to install it before: npm install -g yuglify
