EditorConfig File Locator and Interpreter for Python

Project description

EditorConfig Python Core provides the same functionality as the EditorConfig C Core. EditorConfig Python core can be used as a command line program or as an importable library.

EditorConfig Project

EditorConfig makes it easy to maintain the correct coding style when switching between different text editors and between different projects. The EditorConfig project maintains a file format and plugins for various text editors which allow this file format to be read and used by those editors. For information on the file format and supported text editors, see the EditorConfig website.


With setuptools:

sudo python install

Getting Help

For help with the EditorConfig core code, please write to our mailing list. Bugs and feature requests should be submitted to our issue tracker.

If you are writing a plugin a language that can import Python libraries, you may want to import and use the EditorConfig Python Core directly.

Using as a Library

    for key, value in options.items():

For details, please take a look at the online documentation.
