How to Contribute

We’d love to accept your patches and contributions to this project. There are just a few small guidelines you need to follow.


Run make test to run all tests. If you modify anything in the examples/ folder make sure you replicate the compiled result of that in tests/test_kubernetes_compiled. If you add new features, run make test_coverage to make sure the test coverage remains at current or better levels.

Code Style

Try to fix warnings from make codestyle before submitting to make sure you adhere to the Style Guide for Python (PEP8).
