Notes about code¶
Use the decorator
eduvpn.utils.run_in_background_thread to schedule long running action
in the background to avoid blocking the main thread.
Never call GTK functions directly from a background thread,
eduvpn.utils.run_in_main_gtk_thread to decorate functions
that must run on the main thread (eg. UI updates).
eduvpn.actions are the entrypoints to the application and are triggered from the main menu or a VPN status
eduvpn.remote contains all remote requests.
Running the tests¶
To run the automated tests, use the following command from the root of the project.
To include integration tests against an actual server, you’ll need to provide the address and login credentials in an environment variable.
$ TEST_SERVER=username:firstname.lastname@example.org pytest
How to make a release¶
Prepare the code¶
- Determine version number (for example 1.0.2)
- Compose a list of changes (check issue tracker)
- Make sure the test suite runs with python3
- Set version number in
- add changes to CHANGES.md
- Press release button on github. List all changes here also
- Check if github actions builds.
Upload to pypi¶
do a manual wheel upload using twine:
$ rm dist/* $ python setup.py bdist_wheel sdist $ twine upload dist/*
Build on copr for RPMs¶
Build packages to the COPR repository:
- on copr -> builds -> new build -> scm.
- for clone URL field: https://github.com/eduvpn/python-eduvpn-client
- Committish: the tag / version of the build
- for spec file use: eduvpn.spec
- Build for all supported/configured platforms
You can also trigger this build from the cli. First fetch your token from the COPR api page and dump this in ~/.config/copr. Next, you install the copr cli and trigger the build with:
$ venv/bin/pip install copr-cli $ copr-cli buildscm \ --clone-url https://github.com/edupvn/python-eduvpn-client \ --commit <version> \ --spec eduvpn.spec @eduvpn/eduvpn-client
where <version> is the tag/version of the release.
