Trey's Style Guide

These style guides aim to document Trey Hunner's preferred style for writing Python code and more.


During my Readability Counts talk at DjangoCon 2016, I recommended that everyone embrace and document their own opinionated code style by creating a style guide for each project they create.

At the end of this talk, a friend (friends always ask the hardest questions) asked whether I had a recommendation for a good code style guide and I said no.

This repository is my effort at working toward my own default code style guide that I actually admire.


  • Create an opinionated Python style guide
  • Create a style guide for documentation and rich text

Possible future goals:

  • Create a Django style guide
  • Create a JavaScript style guide
