For significant changes or enhancements to the design or architecture of Volta, we use a Request For Comments (RFC) process. Everyone, including the core team, follows this process.
We encourage you to share your ideas and feedback with us!
Code of Conduct
Volta is intended to compile with Rust 1.33 or newer.
To compile Volta from source, use Cargo:
Installing Local Builds
To install a locally built copy of Volta, you can use the helper scripts provided in the
Or to build and install release binaries:
We use Rust’s official rustfmt tool in our CI to ensure consistent style in the Volta codebase.
To ensure your code is formatted correctly, make sure you have installed
rustup component add rustfmt
and run the following before submitting your PR:
cargo fmt --all
Visual Studio Code
If you use Visual Studio Code with the official Rust plugin, you can configure your editor to automatically format on save.
When developing, we suggest you set the
VOLTA_LOGLEVEL environment variable to
debug and the
RUST_BACKTRACE environment variable to
full. This will provide extra diagnostic information to stderr on crashes. We have an issue on file to improve the quality of diagnostics.
To run the tests in this repo, run the following:
cargo test --all --features mock-network
