Output Checkstyle XML reports of flake8 violations.

Project description


Output Checkstyle XML reports of flake8 violations.

Quick Start

$ pip install flake8-checkstyle

To print a Checkstyle report, use the --format=checkstyle command line argument.

$ flake8 --format=checkstyle path/to/code

The output will look like this:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
  <file name="">
    <error column="1" line="3" message="H306: imports not in alphabetical order (sys, os)" severity="info" source="hacking"/>
    <error column="1" line="3" message="I100 Import statements are in the wrong order. import os should be before import sys" severity="info" source="flake8-import-order"/>
    <error column="27" line="4" message="F821 undefined name 'index'" severity="info" source="pyflakes"/>
    <error column="1" line="7" message="E302 expected 2 blank lines, found 1" severity="error" source="pycodestyle"/>
    <error column="1" line="7" message="D101 Missing docstring in public class" severity="info" source="flake8-docstrings"/>
    <error column="20" line="7" message="W291 trailing whitespace" severity="warning" source="pycodestyle"/>
