  • Git
  • Anaconda (v4.3.27)
  • Python 2.7
  • optional: PyCharm

Step-by-step guide

1. Create your conda environment:

conda env create -n sdap-ningesterpy python=2.7

source activate sdap-ningesterpy

2. Clone the incubator-sdap-nexusproto repository.

git clone

3. Fork the incubator-sdap-ningesterpy repository.

4. Clone the incubator-sdap-ningesterpy repository.

git clone<username>/incubator-sdap-ningesterpy

5. Set Up Remotes.

git remote add upstream

git checkout master

git fetch upstream

git rebase upstream/master

6. Build the nexusproto Image.

cd incubator-sdap-nexusproto

./gradlew pythonInstall

7. Install Dependencies.

cd incubator-sdap-ningesterpy

python install

Make sure you have the channel conda-forge and the right versions of Anaconda and Python3

conda config --add channels conda-forge

conda install conda=4.3.27

conda install python=2.7

8. Create Branch & Make Changes.

Create a branch for the issue you are addressing:

git checkout -b SDAP-<issue number>

git status

After making your changes, commit to your branch:

git add .

git commit -a -m "SDAP-XXX descriptive title of SDAP-XXX"

9. Make a GitHub Pull Request.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you have rebased your SDAP-XXX branch to include the latest code from upstream/master before you do this.

git push origin master

git push origin SDAP-XXX


Using PyCharm

Build configurations:

  • Script: <filepath>/incubator-sdap-ningesterpy/sdap/
  • Environment variables: PYTHONUNBUFFERED=1

  • Python interpreter: ~/anaconda3/envs/incubator-sdap-ningesterpy/bin/python (from your conda environment)
  • Working directory: <filepath>/incubator-sdap-ningesterpy/sdap
  • Check:
    • Add content roots to PYTHONPATH
    • Add source roots to PYTHONPATH
    • Emulate terminal in output console
    • Activate tool window (optional)
