Wrapper for profanity checker that can work on python services/scripts, similar to linters (e.g. pylint)

Project description


Build Status


This is wrapper over profanity-check by vzhou842

prof-checker is meant to work the same way as other python linters work. Depending on how big your codebase is, it might take quite a bit of time to run this. I would not recommend running it on every PR.


$ pip install prof-checker
