Development

Use you favorite tool to create a python >= 3.6 virtual environment

$ git clone git@github.com:tefra/pydrag.git
$ pip install .[dev]
$ pre-commit install
$ pytest
$ tox

pydrag uses vcrpy library to record and replay last.fm responses for its unit tests and python-dotenv to auto-configure itself.

All sensitive information like keys and credentials are automatically censored.

So when it's necessary to record a new response it's super useful to have a .env file with your configuration!
