  • Detailed steps to reproduce the bug.

Fix bugs and implement features

Look through the BitBucket issues for bugs or features that you want to tackle.

Write tests

There are no tests yet, and they are a bit tricky to do, as you really have to test a client library like this against the actual web service, which has no sandbox. Testing strategies will probably depend on how well requests can be mocked out.

Write documentation

signupto could always use more documentation, whether as part of the official signupto docs, in docstrings, or even on the web in blog posts, articles, and such.

Submit 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 contributions are welcome :)

Get started!

Ready to contribute? Here’s how to set up signupto for local development.

  1. Fork the signupto repo on BitBucket.

  2. Clone your fork locally:

    $ hg clone ssh://
  3. Install your local copy into a virtualenv. Assuming you have virtualenvwrapper installed, this is how you set up your fork for local development:

    $ mkvirtualenv signupto
    $ cd signupto/
    $ python develop
  4. Create a branch for local development:

    $ hg branch name-of-your-bugfix-or-feature

    Now you can make your changes locally.

  5. When you’re done making changes, check that your changes pass the tests, including testing other Python versions with tox:

    $ tox

    You will need to:

    $ pip install tox

  6. Commit your changes and push your branch to BitBucket:

    $ hg record
    $ hg push
  7. Submit a pull request through the BitBucket website.
