Pylint JSON report to HTML
A pylint JSON report file to HTML: pylint is used to generate a JSON report, and this tool will transform this report into an HTML document:
usage: pylint-json2html [-h] [-o FILENAME] [-f FORMAT] [-t FILENAME] [FILENAME] Transform Pylint JSON report to HTML positional arguments: FILENAME Pylint JSON report input file (or stdin) optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -o FILENAME, --output FILENAME Pylint HTML report output file (or stdout) -f FORMAT, --input-format FORMAT Pylint JSON Report input type (json or jsonextended) -t FILENAME, --template FILENAME Custom Template to use to generate report
Since its 1.7 version, Pylint does not provide an HTML output format. The release notes say that:
It was lately a second class citizen in Pylint, being mostly neglected. Since we now have the JSON reporter, it can be used as a basis for building more prettier HTML reports than what Pylint can currently generate. This is part of the effort of removing cruft from Pylint, by removing less used features.
And I agree with that statements. Few people use the HTML reports, and pylint is getting old. Its core features are complex and they require a lot of times and efforts - and I am thankful for that software to exist in the first place!
So here it is: a plugin to fulfill my own needs. I share it as open-source because why not?
To install this tool, use pip:
(venv) $ pip install pylint-json2html
You can always download the sources from the github repository, and use the setup.py file to install or develop, but I would not recommend that unless you plan to contribute to this small project of mine.
My favorite way of using pylint and pylint-json2html is this one:
(venv) $ pylint my_package | pylint-json2html -o pylint.html
Provided that you configure your Pylint config file with:
But you can generate first a JSON file, then use pylint-json2html to read it:
(venv) $ pylint your_package > pylint.json (venv) $ pylint-json2html -o pylint.html pylint.json
You can also redirect pylint-json2html’s stdout:
(venv) $ pylint-json2html pylint.json > pylint.html
Actually, I lied about my favorite way, it is this one:
(venv) $ pylint my_package | pylint-json2html -f jsonextended -o pylint.html
With this Pylint configuration:
[MASTER] load-plugins=pylint_json2html [REPORTS] output-format=jsonextended
The pylint_json2html is a Pylint plugin that adds a new output format: jsonextended. By default, the json format contains only a list of messages, and this new format contains also metrics, such the number of analysed statements, or the list of dependencies.
The configuration above can be tested using the command line instead:
(venv) $ pylint --load-plugins=pylint_json2html --output-format=jsonextended your_package > pylint.json
Then, you will be able to use the JSON extended report to generate an HTML report:
(venv) $ pylint-json2html -f jsonextended -o pylint.html pylint.json
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
