One of the first rites of passage when working on a new project is creating your development environment. It always seems simple, but sometimes there are bumps along the way. The first activity I did to begin contributing to ListenBrainz was create my development environment. I wasn’t successful with the documentation in the README, so I had to play around and work with the project before I was even running it.
The first part of this post details how to set up your own development environment. Then, the second half talks about the solution I came up with and my first contribution back to the project.
