Usage

Install by running the command:

pip install pytest-flake8-v2

After installing it, when you run tests with the option:

pytest --flake8

every file ending in .py will be discovered and checked with flake8.

Note

If optional flake8 plugins are installed, those will be used automatically. You can configure them via flake8 section in the pytest.ini file or with a standalone flake8 config file (the path can be configure via flake8-pytest pytest config parameter).

Warning

Running flake8 tests on your project is likely to cause a number of issues. The plugin allows one to configure on a per-project and per-file basis which errors or warnings to ignore, see flake8-ignore.

Configuring FLAKE8 options per project and file

Flake8 config file

Flake8-pytest automatically sets flake8 config file to match pytest config file path. This means that you can configure flake8 by adding a [flake8] section to the pytests' config.

#
[pytest]
markers = flake8

[flake8]
max-line-length = 71
ignore = W292 ; ignore "no newline at end of file"

You can override this default by using flake8-config parameter

[pytest]
flake8-config = ./pytest.ini

If path relative, than it is treated as relative to pytests' config file.

Extra CLI parameters

You can set flake8-cli-arguments pytest config if you want to pass additional CLI arguments to the flake8. E.g.

[pytest]
flake8-cli-arguments = --max-line-length 71

Will cause for all flake8 tests to be called with an equivalent of flake8 --max-line-length 71 <target_file.py> command.

Misc

You may configure flake8-checking options for your project by adding an flake8-ignore entry to your setup.cfg or tox.ini file like this:

# content of setup.cfg
[tool:pytest]
flake8-ignore = E201 E231

This would globally prevent complaints about two whitespace issues. Rerunning with the above example will now look better:

$ pytest -q  --flake8
collecting ... collected 1 items
.
1 passed in 0.01 seconds

If you have some files where you want to specifically ignore some errors or warnings you can start a flake8-ignore line with a glob-pattern and a space-separated list of codes:

# content of setup.cfg
[tool:pytest]
flake8-ignore = 
    *.py E201
    doc/conf.py ALL

So if you have a conf.py like this:

# content of doc/conf.py

func (  [1,2,3]) #this line lots PEP8 errors :)

then running again with the previous example will show a single failure and it will ignore doc/conf.py alltogether:

$ pytest --flake8 -v # verbose shows what is ignored

FAQs

All the flake8 tests are skipping!

This is by design. Clean flake8 results are cached and, unless the file is modified, not tested again.

You can run with pytest --cache-clear --flake8 to override this.

Notes

The repository of this plugin is at https://github.com/VRGhost/pytest-flake8

For more info on pytest see http://pytest.org

The code is partially based on Ronny Pfannschmidt's pytest-codecheckers plugin.
