setuptools plugin for pyflakes
This is a plugin for setuptools that integrates pyflakes. Once installed, “python setup.py flakes” will run pyflakes on all of the modules in your project.
Alternative manual installation:
tar -zxvf setuptools_pyflakes-X.Y.Z.tar.gz cd setuptools_pyflakes-X.Y.Z python setup.py install
Where X.Y.Z is a version number.
To use this plugin, you must first package your python module with \(setup.py\) and use setuptools. The former is well documented in the distutils manual:
To use setuptools instead of distutils, just edit \(setup.py\) and change
from distutils.core import setup
from setuptools import setup
Then, if this plugin is installed, “python setup.py flakes” will work.
You can make sure that anyone who uses your setup.py, and who invokes “python setup.py flakes”, automatically gets this plugin installed, by adding a \(setup_requires\) argument.:
setup_requires= # setuptools_pyflakes is required to make "python setup.py flakes" work. if 'flakes' in sys.argv[1:]: setup_requires.append('setuptools_pyflakes') setup(..., setup_requires = setup_requires, ...)
