Automatically add trailing commas to calls and literals

Project description

Build Status Azure DevOps coverage pre-commit.ci status

add-trailing-comma

A tool (and pre-commit hook) to automatically add trailing commas to calls and literals.

Installation

pip install add-trailing-comma

As a pre-commit hook

See pre-commit for instructions

Sample .pre-commit-config.yaml:

-   repo: https://github.com/asottile/add-trailing-comma
    rev: v2.3.0
    hooks:
    -   id: add-trailing-comma

multi-line method invocation style -- why?

# Sample of *ideal* syntax
function_call(
    argument,
    5 ** 5,
    kwarg=foo,
)
  • the initial paren is at the end of the line
  • each argument is indented one level further than the function name
  • the last parameter (unless the call contains an unpacking (*args / **kwargs)) has a trailing comma

This has the following benefits:

  • arbitrary indentation is avoided:

    # I hear you like 15 space indents
    # oh your function name changed? guess you get to reindent :)
    very_long_call(arg,
                   arg,
                   arg)
    
  • adding / removing a parameter preserves git blame and is a minimal diff:

     # with no trailing commas
     x(
    -    arg
    +    arg,
    +    arg2
     )
    
     # with trailing commas
     x(
         arg,
    +    arg2,
     )
    

Implemented features

trailing commas for function calls

 x(
     arg,
-    arg
+    arg,
 )

trailing commas for function calls with unpackings

If --py35-plus is passed, add-trailing-comma will also perform the following change:

 x(
-    *args
+    *args,
 )
 y(
-    **kwargs
+    **kwargs,
 )

Note that this would cause a SyntaxError in earlier python versions.

trailing commas for tuple / list / dict / set literals

 x = [
-    1, 2, 3
+    1, 2, 3,
 ]

trailing commas for function definitions

 def func(
         arg1,
-        arg2
+        arg2,
 ):
 async def func(
         arg1,
-        arg2
+        arg2,
 ):

trailing commas for function definitions with unpacking arguments

If --py36-plus is passed, add-trailing-comma will also perform the following change:

 def f(
-    *args
+    *args,
 ): pass


 def g(
-    **kwargs
+    **kwargs,
 ): pass


 def h(
-    *, kw=1
+    *, kw=1,
 ): pass

Note that this would cause a SyntaxError in earlier python versions.

trailing commas for from imports

 from os import (
     path,
-    makedirs
+    makedirs,
 )

trailing comma for class definitions

 class C(
     Base1,
-    Base2
+    Base2,
 ):
     pass

trailing comma for with statement

 with (
         open('f1', 'r') as f1,
-        open('f2', 'w') as f2
+        open('f2', 'w') as f2,
 ):
     pass

trailing comma for match statement

 match x:
     case A(
        1,
-       2
+       2,
     ):
        pass
     case (
        1,
-       2
+       2,
     ):
        pass
     case [
        1,
-       2
+       2,
     ]:
        pass
     case {
        'x': 1,
-       'y': 2
+       'y': 2,
     }:
        pass

unhug trailing paren

 x(
     arg1,
-    arg2)
+    arg2,
+)

unhug leading paren

-function_name(arg1,
-              arg2)
+function_name(
+    arg1,
+    arg2,
+)

match closing brace indentation

 x = [
     1,
     2,
     3,
-    ]
+]

remove unnecessary commas

yes yes, I realize the tool is called add-trailing-comma :laughing:

-[1, 2, 3,]
-[1, 2, 3, ]
+[1, 2, 3]
+[1, 2, 3]
