Adds copyright checks to flake8

Project description

Checks for copyright notices in all python files. It runs a simple regular expression search for strings like:

Copyright 2014 <author>
Copyright (C) 2014 <author>

<author> can be anything unless you specify it with the copyright-author option (see below).

Install

Install with pip:

pip install flake8-copyright

Then, activate copyright checks in your flake8 configuration with:

copyright-check = True
# C errors are not selected by default, so add them to your selection
select = E,F,W,C

Further options

copyright-min-file-size
Minimum number of characters in a file before requiring a copyright notice. This is to avoid forcing yourself to add copyright notices to very small or empty files. Default: 0.
copyright-author
Checks for a specific author in the copyright notice.
copyright-regexp
If you’re not happy with the regexp that is ran to look for copyright notices, you can change it with this option. Default: Copyright\s+(\(C\)\s+)?\d{4}([-,]\d{4})*\s+%(author)s. %(author)s is replaced by the contents of copyright-author.
