Check for FIXME, TODO and other temporary developer notes. Plugin for flake8.

Project description


PyPI PyPI codecov CircleCI branch

Check for FIXME, TODO and other temporary developer notes.

This module provides a plugin for flake8, the Python code checker.

This module was inspired by flake8-todo


Install with pip:

pip install flake8-fixme

The plugin officially supports Python >= 3.6 and flake8 >= 3.7. You may find other Python 3 versions work as well.


The plugin finds temporary comments you may not want to commit:

def my_function():
    # FIXME actual implementation here!
./ T100 Fixme found (FIXME)

Each word has a seperate warning so you can adjust your workflow. We like to allow committing TODOs, but deny committing FIXMEs.




  • development pipeline now runs integration tests with flake8, for
    • locally built package (all builds)
    • package downloaded from pypi (after version release)



  • fixed pypi packaging not picking up source files
  • fixed not loading markdown readme correctly


Breaking changes

Upgrading to flake8-fixme from flake8-todo has the following breaking changes:

  • error codes have been changed as follows:
    • T100: line contains FIXME
    • T101: line contains TODO
    • T102: line contains XXX
  • a line containing multiple words will raise an error for each word
  • drop support for Python 2.7
