This project uses pytest for testing. The test suite can be run with:

poetry run pytest

Publishing to PyPi

This project uses Poetry for dependency management and packaging.

Any edit MUST have a new version number otherwise it will be rejected by PyPi.

To publish a new version to PyPi, update the version number in pyproject.toml.

Also add a note to the docs/ file to explain the updates.

Publication to PyPi is handled by GitHub Actions. The workflows are defined in the .github/workflows folder.

Pushes of code to the staging branch will trigger a publication to Test PyPi.

Pushes of code to the main branch will trigger a publication to live PyPi.
