Python pedantic checks

Project description


spotless is a set of flake8 plugins that test and enforce the good Python guidelines.


spotless is available from pypi, so just run:

pip install spotless

This will install flake8, the hacking extension and spotless.


I am too pedantic sometimes about good code, and those extensions were not possible to put into hacking itself, the OpenStack hacking guideline tool.


spotless uses the major.minor.maintenance release notation, where maintenance releases cannot contain new checks. This way projects can gate on hacking by pinning on the major.minor number while accepting maintenance updates without being concerned that a new version will break the gate with a new check.
