interrogate: explain yourself

Documentation Coverage Testing Coverage Documentation Status CI Status

Interrogate a codebase for docstring coverage.

Why Do I Need This?

interrogate checks your code base for missing docstrings.

Documentation should be as important as code itself. And it should live within code. Python standardized docstrings, allowing for developers to navigate libraries as simply as calling help() on objects, and with powerful tools like Sphinx, pydoc, and Docutils to automatically generate HTML, LaTeX, PDFs, etc.

Enter: interrogate.

interrogate will tell you which methods, functions, classes, and modules have docstrings, and which do not. Use interrogate to:

  • Get an understanding of how well your code is documented;
  • Add it to CI/CD checks to enforce documentation on newly-added code;
  • Assess a new code base for (one aspect of) code quality and maintainability.

Let's get started.

Requirements

interrogate supports Python 3.6 and above.

Installation

interrogate is available on PyPI and GitHub. The recommended installation method is pip-installing into a virtualenv:

$ pip install interrogate

Usage

Try it out on a Python project:

$ interrogate [PATH]
RESULT: PASSED (minimum: 80.0%, actual: 100.0%)

Add verbosity to see a summary:

$ interrogate -v [PATH]

Other Usage

Generate a shields.io badge (like this one! interrogate-badge ):

$ interrogate --generate-badge PATH
RESULT: PASSED (minimum: 80.0%, actual: 100.0%)
Generated badge to /Users/lynn/dev/interrogate/docs/_static/interrogate_badge.svg

Add it to your tox.ini file to enforce a level of coverage:

[testenv:doc]
deps = interrogate
skip_install = true
commands =
    interrogate --quiet --fail-under 95 src tests

Or use it with pre-commit:

repos:
  - repo: https://github.com/econchick/interrogate
    rev: 1.3.2  # or master if you're bold
    hooks:
      - id: interrogate
        args: [--quiet, --fail-under=95]

Use it within your code directly:

>>> from interrogate import coverage
>>> cov = coverage.InterrogateCoverage(paths=["src"])
>>> results = cov.get_coverage()
>>> results
InterrogateResults(total=68, covered=65, missing=3)

Use interrogate with GitHub Actions. Check out the action written & maintained by Jack McKew (thank you, Jack!).

Configuration

Configure within your pyproject.toml (interrogate will automatically detect a pyproject.toml file and pick up default values for the command line options):

$ interrogate -c pyproject.toml [OPTIONS] [PATHS]...
[tool.interrogate]
ignore-init-method = true
ignore-init-module = false
ignore-magic = false
ignore-semiprivate = false
ignore-private = false
ignore-property-decorators = false
ignore-module = false
fail-under = 95
exclude = ["setup.py", "docs", "build"]
ignore-regex = ["^get$", "^mock_.*", ".*BaseClass.*"]
verbose = 0
quiet = false
whitelist-regex = []
color = true

Or configure within your setup.cfg (interrogate will automatically detect a setup.cfg file and pick up default values for the command line options):

$ interrogate -c setup.cfg [OPTIONS] [PATHS]...
[tool:interrogate]
ignore-init-method = true
ignore-init-module = false
ignore-magic = false
ignore-semiprivate = false
ignore-private = false
ignore-property-decorators = false
ignore-module = false
fail-under = 95
exclude = setup.py,docs,build
ignore-regex = ^get$,^mock_.*,.*BaseClass.*
verbose = 0
quiet = false
whitelist-regex =
color = true

Warning

The use of setup.cfg is not recommended unless for very simple use cases. .cfg files use a different parser than pyproject.toml which might cause hard to track down problems. When possible, it is recommended to use pyproject.toml to define your interrogate configuration.

To view all options available, run interrogate --help:

interrogate -h
