How to Contribute?

On this page, we provide a step-by-step procedure on how you can start contributing to the DASCore package.

Step 1: Install DASCore in development mode

For the first time using DASCore in development mode, or if a new release is out, you need to install DASCore as it is mentioned here. Otherwise, you just need to activate the environment:

conda activate dascore

First, pull the latest changes and tags, and then run a test in the dascore repository (where you cloned it before):

git checkout master
git pull origin master --tags
pip install -e ".[dev]"
cd dascore

Step 2: Create a new branch to work on

To create a new branch:

git checkout -b "branch name"

Now, you can make changes to the codes. To test what you have done, while you are in the dascore repository:


Or, to be able to interact and debug after testing:

pytest --pdb

Finally, to make a commit and push your branch to GitHub, follow below steps:

1- Run the following command twice (the first time will automatically fix some issues):

pre-commit run --all

2- Run all the following commands:

git add --all
git commit -m "your commit"
git push origin branch_name
