Development Standards

We use the following development standards:

Cyclomatic Complexity

Arguments, Keyword Arguments, Return and Exceptions must be documented with the appropriate Sphinx`Python Domain <>`_.

Revision History

  • Commits shall be small tangible pieces of work. - Each commit must be concise and manageable. - Large changes are to be done over smaller commits.
  • There shall be no commit squashing.
  • Rebase your changes as often as you can.

Unit Tests

  • Every new feature and bug fix must be accompanied with a unit test. (The only exception to this are minor trivial changes).
