Testing with Pytest and Flake8: A Step Towards Quality Assurance

Your feedback highlighted the need for incorporated testing within PySaaS, and we listened. The update introduces basic testing capabilities, incorporating both Flake8 for linting and Pytest for testing. This addition, facilitated by the new requirements_dev.txt, marks our initial step towards comprehensive quality assurance for PySaaS. Expect more thorough tests in future updates as we continue to enhance this aspect.

Chakra UI Fix and More: Streamlining Your Development Process

We've directly integrated the Chakra UI fix into PySaaS code, eliminating extra steps and making it easier for you to get up and running. Moreover, we’re introducing new GitHub issue templates for Bug Reports and Feature Requests, aiming to streamline how we track and address your valuable feedback. If you encounter any issues or have ideas for new features, please submit them here.

Code Clean-Up: Ensuring a Smooth Development Experience

Following the implementation of Flake8, a thorough code clean-up was conducted to address linting issues. This cleanup is part of our ongoing effort to ensure PySaaS remains clean, efficient, and easy to work with, setting the stage for future enhancements including tackling blog code complexity.
