Pylint

We’re using Pylint to do most of the linting of Python files.

Config

Please have a look at the latest Pylint config for all the configured options.

Hint

To see all available configuration options, have a look at the Pylint documentation.

bad-whitespace

Because of Variable Assignment Alignment, we’ve to disable this check.

Hint

Unfortunately, Pylint only allows us to disable the complete whitespaces check and not only the variable assignment checks. However, we use pycodestyle to check the other assignments.

wrong-import-order

We’re using isort for import checks and Pylint will fail, as we’ve separate sections in isort.

duplicate-code

We’re deactivating the check for duplicate code, because this triggers too many times. This is quite common in Django projects.

Makefile

To use the config in your project, use the following Makefile targets:

LINTER_CONFIGS = https://git.confirm.ch/confirm/development-guidelines/raw/master/configs

test-pylint:
    curl -sSfLo .pylintrc $(LINTER_CONFIGS)/pylintrc
    pylint $(SOURCE_DIR)
