Contributions are welcome, and they are greatly appreciated! The development of this package takes place on GitHub. Issues, bugs, and feature requests should be reported there. Code and documentation can be improved by submitting a pull request. Please add documentation and tests for any new code.

The package can be set up (ideally in a virtual environment) for local development with the following:

$ git clone
$ pip install -U -r pyunlocbox/requirements.txt
$ pip install -e pyunlocbox

You can improve or add solvers, functions, and acceleration schemes in pyunlocbox/, pyunlocbox/, and pyunlocbox/, along with their corresponding unit tests in pyunlocbox/tests/test_*.py (with reasonable coverage) and documentation in doc/reference/*.rst. If you have a nice example to demonstrate the use of the introduced functionality, please consider adding a tutorial in doc/tutorials.

Do not forget to update README.rst and doc/history.rst with e.g. new features. The version number needs to be updated in and pyunlocbox/

After making any change, please check the style, run the tests, and build the documentation with the following (enforced by Travis CI):

$ make lint
$ make test
$ make doc

Check the generated coverage report at htmlcov/index.html to make sure the tests reasonably cover the changes you’ve introduced.
