Adding new events

You can also add new events to conrad without writing a crawler for them. To do so, please go through the following steps:

  1. Create a new_events.json file containing the list of events you want to add, with the following fields:

            "name": "PyCon US",
            "url": "",
            "city": "Pittsburgh",
            "state": "Pennsylvania",
            "country": "USA",
            "cfp_open": true,
            "cfp_end_date": "2019-12-20",
            "start_date": "2020-04-15",
            "end_date": "2020-04-23",
            "source": "",
            "tags": "['python']",
            "kind": "conference",
            "by": "human",
    "new_events.json" 17L, 436C
  2. Fork the project repository. Click on the ‘Fork’ button near the top of the page. This creates a copy of the code under your account on the GitHub. Clone your fork of conrad from your GitHub account:

    $ git clone[username]/conrad
    $ cd conrad
  3. Create a branch to hold your changes:

    $ git checkout -b add-new-event
  4. Import the new events:

    $ conrad import -f ../new_events.json
  5. Finally push your changes and raise a PR:

    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Add new events"
    $ git push -u origin add-new-event</pre>
