Flake8 plugin to enforce the same tool configuration (flake8, isort, mypy, Pylint…) across multiple Python projects.

Useful if you maintain multiple projects and want to use the same configs in all of them.

Style file

A “nitpick code style” is a TOML file with the settings that should be present in config files from other tools.

Example of a style:

line-length = 120

pylint = "*"

ignore = "D107,D202,D203,D401"
max-line-length = 120
inline-quotes = "double"

line_length = 120
multi_line_output = 3
include_trailing_comma = true
force_grid_wrap = 0
combine_as_imports = true

This style will assert that:

Quick setup

To try the package, simply install it (in a virtualenv or globally) and run flake8 on a project with at least one Python (.py) file:

# Install using pip:
$ pip install -U nitpick

# Or using Poetry:
$ poetry add --dev nitpick

$ flake8 .

Nitpick will download and use the opinionated default style file.

You can use it as a template to configure your own style.

Run as a pre-commit hook (recommended)

If you use pre-commit on your project (you should), add this to the .pre-commit-config.yaml in your repository:

  - repo:
    rev: v0.23.1
      - id: nitpick

To install the pre-commit and commit-msg Git hooks:

pre-commit install --install-hooks
pre-commit install -t commit-msg

To start checking all your code against the default rules:

pre-commit run --all-files
