Run pylint recursively on all py files in current and sub directories
A simple pylint application that scans the current directory and any sub-directories recursively, then runs pylint on all discovered .py files.
Preferred installation method:
pip install pylint_runner
python setup.py install
When installed, this will create an executable pylint_runner and pylint_runner# where # represents the major version of python you installed with. Much like pip, if installed for both python2 and python3, you will see both pylint_runner2 and pylint_runner3 which can be used to run this code.
Output is standard pylint output. There should be no output if no issues were found.
In case of issues, you should see output similar to:
************* Module foo.bar C: 24, 0: Missing function docstring (missing-docstring) ************* Module tests.foo_tester C: 19, 0: Final newline missing (missing-final-newline) C: 19, 0: Invalid constant name "a" (invalid-name)
See the standard help ouput:
Verbose mode lists all files that were found for testing immediately, along with the pylint output.
This will generate (if run against this repo):
Using pylint 1.6.5 for python 2.7.11 pylint running on the following files: - pylint_runner/__init__.py - pylint_runner/main.py - setup.py - tests/__init__.py - tests/test_runner.py - tests/tests/dummy.py ************* Module tests.test_runner I: 1, 0: Locally disabling missing-docstring (C0111) (locally-disabled)
This allows you to specify a pylintrc file to be used using –rcfile path_to_file.
It may be a relative, or absolute path and defaults to .pylintrc at the current working directory.
It will read the value of ignore from the rcfile and ignore any matching files/folders while building the list of files to pass to python.
It will also pass that rcfile for use by pylint.
