A lint framework that writes better Python code for you.
Fixit is a lint framework that complements Flake8. It’s based on LibCST which makes it possible to provide auto-fixes. Lint rules are made easy to build through pattern matching, a test toolkit, and utility helpers (e.g. scope analysis) for non-trivial boilerplate. It is optimized for efficiency, easy to customize and comes with many builtin lint rules.
To install Fixit:
pip install fixit
Fixit provides CLI commands. To run built-in Fixit rules on existing code to get code quality suggestions:
python -m fixit.cli.run_rules
To apply autofix on existing code:
python -m fixit.cli.apply_fix
Start by setting up and activating a virtualenv:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:Instagram/Fixit.git fixit cd fixit python3 -m venv ../fixit-env/ # just an example, put this wherever you want source ../fixit-env/bin/activate pip install --upgrade pip # optional, if you have an old system version of pip pip install -r requirements.txt -r requirements-dev.txt # If you're done with the virtualenv, you can leave it by running: deactivate
tox -e autofix
To run all tests, you'll need to install tox and do the following in the root: (use py37, py38 to choose from Python version 3.7 or 3.8):
tox -e py38
You can also run individual unit tests by specifying a module like this:
tox -e py38 -- fixit.common.tests.test_report
To run all test cases of a specific rule (e.g.
tox -e py38 -- fixit.tests.NoInheritFromObjectRule
See the unittest documentation for more examples of how to run tests.
We use Pyre for type-checking. To verify types for the library, do the following in the root:
pyre --preserve-pythonpath check
To generate documentation, do the following in the root:
tox -e docs
