PyPI release

An autohooks plugin for python code formatting via black.


Install using pip

You can install the latest stable release of autohooks-plugin-black from the Python Package Index using pip:

pip install autohooks-plugin-black

Note the pip refers to the Python 3 package manager. In a environment where Python 2 is also available the correct command may be pip3.

Install using poetry

It is highly encouraged to use poetry for maintaining your project's dependencies. Normally autohooks-plugin-black is installed as a development dependency.

poetry add --dev autohooks-plugin-black


To activate the black autohooks plugin please add the following setting to your pyproject.toml file.

pre-commit = [""]

By default, autohooks plugin black checks all files with a .py ending. If only files in a sub-directory or files with different endings should be formatted, just add the following setting:

pre-commit = [""]

include = ['foo/*.py', '*.foo']

Also by default, autohooks plugin black executes black with the -q argument. If e.g. the generated patch should be shown the following setting can be used:

pre-commit = [""]

arguments = ["-q", "--diff"]
