Python docstring style checker

Project description

(formerly pep257)

pydocstyle is a static analysis tool for checking compliance with Python docstring conventions.

pydocstyle supports Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and pypy.

pip install pydocstyle

test:75 in public function `init_database`:
    D201: No blank lines allowed before function docstring (found 1)
