Enables immediate output for flake8.
This module adds immediate output option for flake8, the Python code checker.
Usually, flake8 delays the output until a file is completely processed. With the immediate option, flake8 prints the errors directly without any delay. So this option provides the possibility to get a streaming pipe from a flake8 subprocess. A real world use case is represented by https://github.com/schlamar/SublimeStreamingLinter.
This has the drawback that the output is not sorted across the various checkers.
You can install or upgrade flake8-immediate with these commands:
$ pip install flake8-immediate $ pip install --upgrade flake8-immediate
When both flake8 2.0 and flake8-immediate are installed, the plugin is available in flake8:
$ flake8 --version 2.0 (pep8: 1.4.5, mccabe: 0.2, flake8-immediate: 0.1, pyflakes: 0.6.1)
Just pass the --immediate option to flake8:
$ flake8 --help Usage: flake8 [options] input ... Options: ... --immediate don't cache the error output until EOF ...
