samj1912 Fix bug with google style arg regex (#448)
Currently, due to the way the regex was specified, the regex
matcher was getting thrown off by types that used colons.

This change makes the regex robust to such type and fixes #443

pydocstyle - docstring style checker Documentation Status

pydocstyle is a static analysis tool for checking compliance with Python docstring conventions.

pydocstyle supports most of PEP 257 out of the box, but it should not be considered a reference implementation.

pydocstyle supports Python 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8.

Quick Start


pip install pydocstyle


$ pydocstyle in private nested class `meta`:
        D101: Docstring missing in public function `get_user`:
    D300: Use """triple double quotes""" (found '''-quotes)
test:75 in public function `init_database`:
    D201: No blank lines allowed before function docstring (found 1)


You can’t perform that action at this time.
