A flake8 plugin to ban type hints.

Project description


A flake8 plugin to ban type hints.

This can be useful in code bases where you aren’t running type checking (yet?) but developers or their IDE’s keep adding type hints that can end up being incorrect.


Install from pip with:

pip install flake8-no-types

Python 3.5-3.8 supported.

When installed it will automatically be run as part of flake8; you can check it is being picked up with:

$ flake8 --version
3.7.9 (flake8-no-types: 1.0.0, mccabe: 0.6.1, pycodestyle: 2.5.0, pyflakes: 2.1.1) CPython 3.8.0 on Darwin


NT001: No type hints.

Complains about all forms of type hints:

  • Function annotations: def foo() -> int:
  • Variable hints: foo: int = 1


1.0.0 (2019-11-19)

  • First release on PyPI.
  • NT001 rule that complains about type annotations.
