Code style

InvenioRDM follows Invenio practices:

  • Commits:
    • Messages
    • Logical: Commits should be logical chunks of works (git rebase is your friend). Do not make many small commits.
  • Coding style: PEP8, isorting (checked by the ./ script and .editorconfig helps you configure your editor)
  • Follow existing style (look at the module you are working on):
    • Do not use type hints.
    • Support Python 3.7+ (i.e. any supported Python version)

In doubt if something is allowed or not? Just ask on Discord
