Overall guidance on contributing to a PyAnsys library appears in the Contributing topic in the PyAnsys Developer’s Guide. Ensure that you are thoroughly familiar with this guide before attempting to contribute to PyTwin.

The following contribution information is specific to PyTwin.

Post issues#

Use the PyTwin Issues page to submit questions, report bugs, and request new features.

Clone the repository#

To clone and install the latest PyTwin release in development mode, run this code:

git clone
cd pytwin
pip install pip -U
pip install -e .

Build documentation#

To build the PyTwin documentation locally, in the root directory of the repository, run this code:

pip install -r requirements/requirements_doc.txt
cd doc
make html

After the build completes, the HTML documentation is located in the _builds/html directory. You can load the index.html file in this directory into a web browser.

You can clear all HTML files from the _builds/html directory with this command:

make clean

Run unitary tests#

To launch pytwin unitary tests automatically to verify that code modifications do not break existing logic, install the pytest package into your Python environment. Then, from the root directory, run this code:

pytest --cov=pytwin --cov-report=term --cov-report=xml:.cov/coverage.xml --cov-report=html:.cov/html tests -vv

Adhere to code style#

PyTwin is compliant with the PyAnsys code style. It uses the tool pre-commit to check the code style. You can install and activate this tool with this code:

python -m pip install pre-commit
pre-commit install

Or, you can directly execute pre-commit with this command:

pre-commit run --all-files --show-diff-on-failure
