Code Metrics in Python

Project Description

Travis-CI badge Coveralls badge PyPI latest version badge PyPI downloads badge Dependency Status

Radon is a Python tool that computes various metrics from the source code. Radon can compute:

  • McCabe’s complexity, i.e. cyclomatic complexity
  • raw metrics (these include SLOC, comment lines, blank lines, &c.)
  • Halstead metrics (all of them)
  • Maintainability Index (the one used in Visual Studio)

Requirements

Radon will run from Python 2.6 to Python 3.3 with a single code base and without the need of tools like 2to3 or six. It can also run on PyPy without any problems (currently only PyPy 2.0.0 is tested).

Radon does not depend on any other Python package (except Baker for the command line, but it is an optional dependency).

Installation

With Pip:

$ pip install radon

Or download the source and run the setup file:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

Radon can be used either from the command line or programmatically. Documentation is at https://radon.readthedocs.org/.

Cyclomatic Complexity Example

Quick example:

$ radon cc -anc ../baker/baker.py
../baker/baker.py
    M 581:4 Baker.parse_args - D
    M 723:4 Baker.parse - D
    M 223:4 Baker.command - C
    M 796:4 Baker.apply - C
    M 857:4 Baker.run - C

32 blocks (classes, functions, methods) analyzed.
Average complexity: B (6.15625)

Explanation:

  • cc is the radon command
  • -a tells radon to calculate the average complexity at the end
  • -nc tells radon to print only results with a complexity rank of C or worse. Other examples: -na (from A to F), or -nd (from D to F).

Actually it’s even better: it’s got colors!
