Developing and Contributing to Ibis¶
For a primer on general open source contributions, see the pandas contribution guide. The project will be run much like pandas has been.
Linux Test Environment Setup¶
Conda Environment Setup¶
Install the latest version of miniconda:
# Download the miniconda bash installer curl -Ls -o $HOME/miniconda.sh \ https://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh # Run the installer bash $HOME/miniconda.sh -b -p $HOME/miniconda # Put the conda command on your PATH export PATH="$HOME/miniconda/bin:$PATH"
Install the development environment of your choice (Python 3.6 in this example), activate and install ibis in development mode:
# Create a conda environment ready for ibis development # including building the documentation conda env create -n ibis36 -f ci/requirements-3.6-dev.yml # Activate the conda environment source activate ibis36 # Install ibis make develop
Note: `make develop` command also install a `pre-commit` Git hook.
We use docker-compose for ibis development to make it easy for developers to test ibis against databases that have traditionally requied a lot of setup, such as Impala.
The following command does three steps:
Downloads the test data
Starts each backend as a service via docker-compose
Initializes the backends with the test tables
Take a peek at the Makefile to see what else is available.
Download Test Datasets¶
This step isn’t necessary, but can sometimes be helpful if you want to investigate something outside of the docker-compose setup that ships with ibis.
Download the test data:
By default this will download and extract the dataset under testing/ibis-testing-data.
Setting Up Test Databases¶
To start every backend as a service using
load test datasets into each backend use this command:
The one backend that ibis supports that can’t be started as a service running in a docker container is BigQuery.
Read the next section for details on how to get setup with BigQuery and ibis.
Set up application default credentials by following the getting started with GCP authentication guide.
Load data into BigQuery:
You are now ready to run the full ibis test suite:
Here’s a few ideas to think about outside of participating in the primary development roadmap:
Use cases and IPython notebooks
Other SQL-based backends (Presto, Hive, Spark SQL)
S3 filesytem support
Integration with MLLib via PySpark
