flake8_datetime_utcnow_plugin

Rationale

Plugin for flake8 to warn the developer of the usage of datetime.utcnow().

The problem with datetme.utcnow() is that indeed returns the current timestamp in the UTC timzone but the object is a naive datetime, that is doesn't have the tzinfo argument set.

Instead datetime.now() should be used passing the UTC timezone:

from datetime import datetime, timezone

datetime.now(timezone.utc)

Installation

To install the plugin and flake8:

pip install flake8_datetime_utcnow_plugin
