Feature requests and feedback

The best way to send feedback is to file an issue at

If you are proposing a feature:

  • Explain in detail how it would work.

  • Keep the scope as narrow as possible, to make it easier to implement.

  • Remember that this is a volunteer-driven project, and that code contributions are welcome :)


To set up python-dts-calibration for local development:

  1. Fork python-dts-calibration (look for the “Fork” button).

  2. Clone your fork locally:

    git clone
  3. Create a branch for local development:

    git checkout -b name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

    Now you can make your changes locally.

  4. Activate your desired development environment (e.g., a python venv or conda environment), and install the package in editable mode, with the dev dependencies:

    pip install -e ".[dev]"
  1. When you’re done making changes, make sure the code follows the right style, that all tests pass, and that the docs build with the following commands:

    hatch run format
    hatch run test
    hatch run docs:build
  2. Commit your changes and push your branch to GitHub:

    git add .
    git commit -m "Your detailed description of your changes."
    git push origin name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature
  3. Submit a pull request through the GitHub website.

Pull Request Guidelines

If you need some code review or feedback while you’re developing the code just make the pull request.

For merging, you should:

  1. Include passing tests (do hatch run test) [1].

  2. Update documentation when there’s new API, functionality etc.

  3. Add a note to CHANGELOG.rst about the changes.

  4. Add yourself to AUTHORS.rst.


To run a subset of tests:

hatch run pytest -k test_myfeature
