Python linter to check TODO comments for consistency and best practice.

Project description


Plugin for flake8 linter to check TODOs in the project.


# TODO(gram): check performance


# FIXME idk how it works lol


  • T001: use TODO instead of FIXME (or BUG) for consistency.
  • T002: add author into TODO (motivation).
  • T003: add link on issue into TODO.
  • T004: missed colon in TODO.
  • T005: missed text in TODO.
  • T006: write TODO instead of ToDo (use upper case).
  • T007: missed space after colon in TODO.


python3 -m pip install --user flake8-todos


Check that plugin was added in your flake8:

$ python3 -m flake8 --version
3.7.7 (flake8-todos: 1.0.0, mccabe: 0.6.1, pycodestyle: 2.5.0, pyflakes: 2.1.1) CPython 3.6.7 on Linux

If you don't see flake8-todos in the previous command output, check that flake8 and flake8-todos is installed in the same interpreter.

If everything is OK, run flake8:

python -m flake8
