We adopt PEP8 as the preferred code style.
We use the following tools for linting and formatting:
flake8: A wrapper around some linter tools.
isort: A Python utility to sort imports.
yapf: A formatter for Python files.
codespell: A Python utility to fix common misspellings in text files.
mdformat: Mdformat is an opinionated Markdown formatter that can be used to enforce a consistent style in Markdown files.
docformatter: A formatter to format docstring.
Style configurations of yapf and isort can be found in setup.cfg.
We use pre-commit hook that checks and formats for
requirments.txt automatically on every commit.
The config for a pre-commit hook is stored in .pre-commit-config.
After you clone the repository, you will need to install initialize pre-commit hook.
pip install -U pre-commit
From the repository folder
After this on every commit check code linters and formatter will be enforced.
Before you create a PR, make sure that your code lints and is formatted by yapf.
