See also the contributing guide for more information on how to contribute to Solara.
Assuming you have created a virtual environment as described in the installation guide, you can install a development install of Solara using:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:widgetti/solara.git $ cd solara $ pip install ".[dev,documentation]" # documentation is optional
Running Solara server in auto restart mode
By passing the
--auto-restart/-a flag, the solara server will automatically restart when the sourcecode of the solara server changes, which makes it friendlier for development
$ solara run myscript.py -a
* Automatically restart the server if any of the source code of solara changes (excluding solara.website)
If you plan to contribute, also run the following:
$ pre-commit install
This will cause a test of linters/formatters and mypy to run so the code is in good quality before you git commit.
$ playwright install
This will install playwright, for when you want to run the integration tests.
If you want to run the unit tests (quick run when doing development, or when you do test driven development)
$ py.test tests/unit
If you want to run the integration tests (uses playwright to open a browser to test the live server with a real browser)
$ py.test tests/integration
