Check formatting of Python code blocks with black:

Reformat Python code blocks with black, in place:

mypy somemodule anothermodule <(codeblocks --python

Full type checking example

def plus(x: int, y: int) -> int:
    return x + y

plus(1, '2')
$ mypy --pretty --strict <(codeblocks --python
/dev/fd/63:5: error: Argument 2 to "plus" has incompatible type "str"; expected "int"
        plus(1, '2')
