An extension for flake8 to report on too complex type annotations.
Complex type annotations often means bad annotations usage, wrong code decomposition or improper data structure choice. They are also hard to read and make code look java-like.
Annotation complexity is maximum annotation nesting level.
List[int] complexity is 2 and
Tuple[List[Optional[str]], int] is 4.
Default max annotation complexity is 3 and can be configured
pip install flake8-annotations-complexity
# test.py def foo() -> List[int]: return 
$ flake8 --max-annotations-complexity=1 test.py test.py:4:14: TAE002 too complex annotation (2 > 1)
Tested on Python 3.5.0 and flake8 3.7.4.
