Testing and requirements
Because this project has many optional (pluggable) parts like persistence backends and engines, we decided to split our requirements into two parts: - things that are absolutely required (you can't use the project without them) are put into ``requirements.txt``. The requirements that are required by some optional part of this project (you can use the project without them) are put into our ``test-requirements.txt`` file (so that we can still test the optional functionality works as expected). If you want to use the feature in question (`eventlet`_ or the worker based engine that uses `kombu`_ or the `sqlalchemy`_ persistence backend or jobboards which have an implementation built using `kazoo`_ ...), you should add that requirement(s) to your project or environment. Tox.ini
tox.ini file describes several test environments that allow to test
TaskFlow with different python versions and sets of requirements installed.
Please refer to the
tox_ documentation to understand how to make these test
environments work for you.
We also have sphinx documentation in
To build it, run:
$ python setup.py build_sphinx
