Flake8 lint for quotes.

Project description

Build Status

Major update in 2.0.0

We automatically encourage avoiding escaping quotes as per PEP 8. To disable this, use --no-avoid-escape (can be used in configuration file via avoid-escape).

Deprecation notice in 0.3.0

To anticipate multiline support, we are renaming --quotes to --inline-quotes. Please adjust your configurations appropriately.

Usage

If you are using flake8 it’s as easy as:

pip install flake8-quotes

Now you don’t need to worry about people like @sectioneight constantly complaining that you are using double-quotes and not single-quotes.

Warnings

This package adds one flake8 warning `Q0`. You might want to enable this warning inside flake8 configuration file. Typically that will be .flake8 inside the root folder of your project.

select = Q0

Configuration

By default, we expect single quotes (‘) and look for unwanted double quotes (“). To expect double quotes (“) and find unwanted single quotes (‘), use the CLI option:

flake8 --inline-quotes '"'
# We also support "double" and "single"
# flake8 --inline-quotes 'double'
#
# We also support configuration for multiline quotes
# flake8 --inline-quotes '"' --multiline-quotes "'"
# We also support "'''"
# flake8 --inline-quotes '"' --multiline-quotes "'''"
#
# We also support docstring quotes similarly
# flake8 --inline-quotes '"' --docstring-quotes "'"
# flake8 --inline-quotes '"' --docstring-quotes "'''"

# We also support disabling escaping quotes
# flake8 --no-avoid-escape

or configuration option in tox.ini/setup.cfg.

inline-quotes = "
# We also support "double" and "single"
# inline-quotes = double
#
# We also support configuration for multiline quotes
# multiline-quotes = '
# We also support "'''"
# multiline-quotes = '''
#
# We also support docstring quotes similarly
# docstring-quotes = '
# docstring-quotes = '''
#
# We also support disabling escaping quotes
# avoid-escape = False

Caveats

We follow the PEP8 conventions to avoid backslashes in the string. So, no matter what configuration you are using (single or double quotes) these are always valid strings

s = 'double "quotes" wrapped in singles are ignored'
s = "single 'quotes' wrapped in doubles are ignored"
