NOTE: Sherlock is not accepting adult sites in the standard list.


Thank you for contributing to Sherlock!

Before creating a pull request with new development, please run the tests to ensure that everything is working great. It would also be a good idea to run the tests before starting development to distinguish problems between your environment and the Sherlock software.

The following is an example of the command line to run all the tests for Sherlock. This invocation hides the progress text that Sherlock normally outputs, and instead shows the verbose output of the tests.

$ python3 -m unittest tests.all --buffer --verbose

Note that we do currently have 100% test coverage. Unfortunately, some of the sites that Sherlock checks are not always reliable, so it is common to get response errors.
