When committing to the repository, there are a few conventions that should be followed.
- Code is clean and commented where needed
- Any unused code is either removed or commented out
- Methods that are not entirely obvious as to how they work should have a doc comment explaining the purpose and arguments (see Storm.py for an example)
- Code with different functions should be reasonably separated by directories of their function
- When changing any functions, documentation referencing that code should be changed to match (.md files / doc comments)
- If changes are made to another person's code that fundamentally change the output / input of the code, discuss those changes with the original creator
|Master||Bug fixes & general addition|
|Others||New distinct features that are incomplete / not functional yet|
Project & External Data
- All large data files must be excluded from the GitHub repository.
Note: All files except
.gitignorefiles are ignored in the
datafolder, so storing data in a sub-directory there is a good option! To force Git to commit a directory, but not the files in it, you can copy the
data/archive_cacheinto the directory.
