Run the relevant tools for a repository

Project description

Sir Hiss

Automatically run the relevant tool (pylint, mypy, pytest, ...) for the current repository.

Tools are detected by peeking at configuration files (pyproject.toml, .pylintrc, ...).


From the root of a python project:

  • hiss will run the tools
  • hiss --check prevent the files to be modified by formatters
  • hiss --fast will skip slowest tools (mostly tests)
  • hiss --preview will print the list of tools found in the repository

Why this (stupid) name

Sir Hiss is the name of the snake in "Robin Hood" animated movie. He has a lot of interesting advice to give to the king but he is never listened to ... I hope you don't treat your linter like that ^^

Supported tools

  • black
  • flake
  • isort
  • mypy
  • nosetest
  • pylint
  • pytest

Please suggest more tools :-)


  • Read requirements.txt
  • Decide if we should try to read tox.ini. Tox also allow to launch several tools in diferrent environments and there is some overlap with hiss.
  • Add installation instructions

To consider

  • Display diff on failure
  • Share some options
