A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Flake8

Flake8 is a wrapper around these tools:

  • PyFlakes
  • pycodestyle
  • Ned Batchelder's McCabe script

Flake8 runs all the tools by launching the single flake8 command. It displays the warnings in a per-file, merged output.

It also adds a few features:

  • files that contain this line are skipped:

    # flake8: noqa
    
  • lines that contain a # noqa comment at the end will not issue warnings.

  • you can ignore specific errors on a line with # noqa: <error>, e.g., # noqa: E234. Multiple codes can be given, separated by comma. The noqa token is case insensitive, the colon before the list of codes is required otherwise the part after noqa is ignored

  • Git and Mercurial hooks

  • extendable through flake8.extension and flake8.formatting entry points
