Inline your lint messages

Project description


Tired of reading through CI console logs to find your lint errors? Inline your lint messages in your diffs!

  • Free software: ISC license


  • Run linters against your code and comment in your diffs at the failing lines
  • Automatically run linters with reasonable default configs
  • Easy to add new linter configurations

How to use

pip install inlineplz
inline-plz --install --autorun

You probably want to run the above in a CI job, not in your regular development environment.

You’ll also need to provide the following either in the command line or via environment variables:

  • owner: the repo organization/owner
  • repo: the repo name
  • token: your auth token (encrypt this, don’t put this in plaintext in any public configurations!)
  • url: the url of your scm host
  • interface: the type of scm host (such as github)


  • node.js / npm
  • ruby / gem
  • python / pip

Known issues

  • Currently for Travis-CI usage, inline-plz only works for PRs within the original repo, not PRs from forks. This is because encrypted creds in Travis-CI configs are encrypted per repo, and cannot be decrypted in PRs from forks.
  • Currently the inline-plz console output can print out some misleading stack traces
  • Currently dependencies get installed globally unless you pre-create a virtualenv
  • Commits directly to master are not currently supported
