We welcome contributions and value your ideas. Please use GitHub Issues if you would like to suggest ideas, request new features or enhancements, or report bugs. To contribute code, open a GitHub Pull Requests. If you are new to the project, we kindly ask you to review QuantumLeap's contribution guidelines as well as FIWARE's contribution requirements.
To contribute code:
- Fork the repository and clone the fork to your local development environment
- Identify a modular contribution to the code (avoid too large contributions to simplify review)
- Create a branch in your repository where you tackle the "modular
- For multiple contributions tackling different functionalities, create different branches
- For all the new functionalities provide tests (see
run.shin the root to understand how tests can be run locally)
- When done, verify that all tests are passing
- Recall to update docs. Markdown documents, need to follow best practises.
To help you in linting your markdown before pushing changes, use the script
- If so, create a pull request against our repository (we cannot review pull requests with failing tests)
- Wait for the review
- Implement required changes
- Repeat until approval
- Done :) You can delete the branch in your repository.
pytest is used as the testing framework,
but since most of QL's functionality is integration of components, you'll find
docker-compose.yml files in the test folders to be run as a setup for tests.
If you see
.circleci/config.yml file you'll see how they are running today, but
probably at some point it's worth exploring pytest-docker plugins.
Once you installed the requirements, setting up the development environment is straight forward:
git clone https://github.com/orchestracities/ngsi-timeseries-api.git cd ngsi-timeseries-api pipenv install --dev # if you want to set up a dev env to test everything locally, you'll need to... source setup_dev_env.sh
To run tests (assuming you run
Using Gunicorn & fine tuning it
Details on how to use Quantum Leap WSGI app in Gunicorn:
cd ngsi-timeseries-api/src gunicorn server.wsgi --config server/gconfig.py
--limit-request-line INT 4094
--limit-request-fields INT 100
This parameter is used to limit the number of headers in a request to prevent
DDOS attack. Used with the
limit_request_field_size it allows more safety.
By default this value is 100 and can’t be larger than 32768.
--limit-request-field_size INT 8190
Limit the allowed size of an HTTP request header field. Value is a positive number or 0. Setting it to 0 will allow unlimited header field sizes.
In the current project tree structure you can find:
docs: Holds documentation files.
docker: To hold docker-related files for the scope of the project.
experiments: Sandbox for quick manual tests to try some stuff and derive new test cases.
specification: Contains the OpenAPI definition that QL implements.
src: Source code folder.
geocoding: Holds the code for interacting with OSM and doing geo-related processing.
reporter: Modules acting as the receiver of the notifications and API requests. It "parses/validates" them before handling tasks to the translators.
translators: Specific translators for each time-series databases, responsible for interacting with the lower-level database details.
utils: Common shared stuff looking for a better place to live in.
