Your pathway to a clean codebase.

What's Statue?

Statue is an orchestration tool for static code analysis. It combines the overall power of several linters and formatters into one consistent tool that prevents unwanted conflicts. With Statue you can integrate tools such as Mypy, Pylint, Black, Isort and many others.

What Do You Mean by "Orchestration"?

When running multiple formatters and linters (commands, in general), sometimes they interfere with each other and cause clashes. On other occasions, in order to solve an issue with one linter you have to introduce another issue in a different linter.

Statue solves this problem (and many other problems, as we'll describe later) by keeping all your linters and formatters configuration in one file, which is fully editable via command line. In that way, you won't need to edit huge configuration files in order to keep your commands in check.

Moreover, With Statue you can define different arguments for your commands to use on each file and directory in your codebase. This allows you to customize different style conventions for different files and directories, making your work with static code analysis tools more robust and user-friendly. This can be very handy when you have large codebase that you want to migrate to a given style one step at a time.

Why Statue?

Statue helps you to improve your code using these powerful features:

  • Run several formatters and linters asynchronously for faster evaluations
  • Run commands with different arguments on each file and directory using contexts
  • Avoid editing tedious configuration files by using the statue config command
  • Keeping results history in order to re-run failing and non-failing static code analysis tools with only few keystrokes
  • Saving your configuration as template in order for reuse in other project
  • Provide clear and concise exportable evaluation reports of all your formatters and linters

Can't I just keep all my configurations in setup.cfg or pyproject.toml?

Most of the formatters and linters allow you to save their configurations in setup.cfg or pyproject.toml. While this solution does help keep all your configuration in one place, it doesn't allow you to specify different configurations for different files and directories.

While Statue does introduce an additional configuration file (statue.toml), this configuration file is totally editable via command line using the statue config methods.

How does Statue differ from pre-commit?

pre-commit has been for a long time the go-to tool for running linters and formatters on your codebase, and it is provided with predefined hooks for most state-of-the-art tools. While we surely recommend on using pre-commit, here are few reasons why you might want to consider also using Statue:

  • If you don't need each and every commit to pass your linters
  • If you want to use a linters and formatters that doesn't have .pre-commit-hooks.yaml file
  • If you use a lot of linters and formatters which cause your git commit to hang for long periods of time
  • If you want to run your linters and formatters with different arguments on different files and directories
  • If you need clear and concise reports of your linters evaluations
