would be the most simple usage and would run vulture for all error messages.
py.test --vulture --vulture-cfg-file=/test/vulture.ini

Ignoring vulture messages in source code
ignoring lines :
def test(): a = 2 # vulture: ignore
ignoring methods :
def test(): # vulture: ignore pass
ignoring classes :
class Test: # vulture: ignore pass
The config file (the path can be defined by the –vulture-cfg-file option) can look like this
[vulture] # completely exclude files for vulture exclude = */test/* # We usualy exclude tests because tests can cover dead code # those file are ignored by pytest, but still computed by vulture ignore = src/toto.py # ignoring names in code ignore-names = delimiter # ignoring decorators ignore-decorators = @application.errorhandler @application.route @celery_app.task @application.app.errorhandler # ignore vulture type of messages ignore-types = attribute variable
