General Information

Coding Style

When refactoring, writing or altering scripts or other files, adhere to these rules:

  1. Adjust your style of coding to the style that is already present! Even if you do not like it, this is due to consistency. There was a lot of work involved in making all scripts consistent.
  2. Use shellcheck to check your scripts! Your contributions are checked by GitHub Actions too, so you will need to do this. You can lint your work with make lint to check against all targets.
  3. Use the provided .editorconfig file.
  4. Use /bin/bash instead of /bin/sh in scripts


To run the test suite, you will need to

  1. Install Docker
  2. Install jq (under Ubuntu, use sudo apt-get -y install jq)
  3. Execute git submodule update --init --recursive if you haven't already initialized the git submodules
  4. Execute make clean all

Can I use MacOS?

We do not support running linting, tests, etc on macOS at this time. Please use a linux VM.


You will need to have Docker installed. Navigate into the docs/ directory. Then run:

docker run --rm -it -p 8000:8000 -v "${PWD}:/docs" squidfunk/mkdocs-material

This serves the documentation on your local machine on port 8000. Each change will be hot-reloaded onto the page you view, just edit, save and look at the result.
