File docs/config.rst

+Configuration
+=============
+
+The behaviour may be configured at two levels.
+
+Global
+------
+
+The user settings are read from the ``~/.config/flake8`` file.
+Example::
+
+  [flake8]
+  ignore = E226,E302,E41
+  max-line-length = 160
+
+Per-Project
+-----------
+
+At the project level, a ``tox.ini`` file or a ``setup.cfg`` file is read
+if present.  Only the first file is considered.  If this file does not
+have a ``[flake8]`` section, no project specific configuration is loaded.
+
+Default
+-------
+
+If the ``ignore`` option is not in the configuration and not in the arguments,
+only the error codes ``E226`` and ``E241/E242`` are ignored
+(see codes in the table below).

+Flake8
+======
+
+Flake8 is a wrapper around these tools:
+
+- PyFlakes
+- pep8
+- Ned Batchelder's McCabe script
+
+Flake8 runs all the tools by launching the single ``flake8`` script.
+It displays the warnings in a per-file, merged output.
+
+It also adds a few features:
+
+- files that contain this line are skipped::
+
+    # flake8: noqa
+
+- lines that contain a ``# noqa`` comment at the end will not issue warnings.
+- a Git and a Mercurial hook.
+- a McCabe complexity checker.
+- extendable through ``flake8.extension`` entry points.
+
+QuickStart
+==========
+
+::
+
+    pip install flake8
+
+To run flake8 just invoke it against any directory or Python module::
+
+    $ flake8 coolproject
+    coolproject/mod.py:97:1: F401 'shutil' imported but unused
+    coolproject/mod.py:625:17: E225 missing whitespace around operato
+    coolproject/mod.py:729:1: F811 redefinition of function 'readlines' from line 723
+    coolproject/mod.py:1028:1: F841 local variable 'errors' is assigned to but never used
+
+The outputs of PyFlakes *and* pep8 (and the optional plugins) are merged
+and returned.
+
+flake8 offers an extra option: --max-complexity, which will emit a warning if
+the McCabe complexity of a function is higher than the value.  By default it's
+deactivated::
+
+    $ flake8 --max-complexity 12 coolproject
+    coolproject/mod.py:97:1: F401 'shutil' imported but unused
+    coolproject/mod.py:625:17: E225 missing whitespace around operator
+    coolproject/mod.py:729:1: F811 redefinition of unused 'readlines' from line 723
+    coolproject/mod.py:939:1: C901 'Checker.check_all' is too complex (12)
+    coolproject/mod.py:1028:1: F841 local variable 'errors' is assigned to but never used
+    coolproject/mod.py:1204:1: C901 'selftest' is too complex (14)
+
+This feature is quite useful to detect over-complex code.  According to McCabe,
+anything that goes beyond 10 is too complex.
+See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclomatic_complexity.

+Original Projects
+=================
+
+Flake8 is just a glue project, all the merits go to the creators of the original
+projects:
+
+- pep8: https://github.com/jcrocholl/pep8
+- PyFlakes: https://launchpad.net/pyflakes
+- McCabe: http://nedbatchelder.com/blog/200803/python_code_complexity_microtool.html

File docs/setuptools.rst

+setuptools integration
+======================
+
+If setuptools is available, Flake8 provides a command that checks the
+Python files declared by your project.  To use it, add flake8 to your
+setup_requires::
+
+    setup(
+        name="project",
+        packages=["project"],
+
+        setup_requires=[
+            "flake8"
+        ]
+    )
+
+Running ``python setup.py flake8`` on the command line will check the
+files listed in your ``py_modules`` and ``packages``.  If any warning
+is found, the command will exit with an error code::
+
+    $ python setup.py flake8

File docs/vcs.rst

+VCS Hooks
+=========
+
+Mercurial hook
+--------------
+
+To use the Mercurial hook on any *commit* or *qrefresh*, change your .hg/hgrc
+file like this::
+
+    [hooks]
+    commit = python:flake8.run.hg_hook
+    qrefresh = python:flake8.run.hg_hook
+
+    [flake8]
+    strict = 0
+    complexity = 12
+
+
+If *strict* option is set to **1**, any warning will block the commit. When
+*strict* is set to **0**, warnings are just printed to the standard output.
+
+*complexity* defines the maximum McCabe complexity allowed before a warning
+is emitted.  If you don't specify it, it's just ignored.  If specified, it must
+be a positive value.  12 is usually a good value.
+
+
+Git hook
+--------
+
+To use the Git hook on any *commit*, add a **pre-commit** file in the
+*.git/hooks* directory containing::
+
+    #!/usr/bin/python
+    import sys
+    from flake8.run import git_hook
+
+    COMPLEXITY = 10
+    STRICT = False
+
+    if __name__ == '__main__':
+        sys.exit(git_hook(complexity=COMPLEXITY, strict=STRICT, ignore='E501'))
+
+
+If *strict* option is set to **True**, any warning will block the commit. When
+*strict* is set to **False** or omitted, warnings are just printed to the
+standard output.
+
+*complexity* defines the maximum McCabe complexity allowed before a warning
+is emitted.  If you don't specify it or set it to **-1**, it's just ignored.
+If specified, it must be a positive value.  12 is usually a good value.
+
+*lazy* when set to ``True`` will also take into account files not added to the
+index.
+
+Also, make sure the file is executable and adapt the shebang line so it
+points to your Python interpreter.

File docs/warnings.rst

+Warning / Error codes
+=====================
+
+The convention of Flake8 is to assign a code to each error or warning, like
+the ``pep8`` tool.  These codes are used to configure the list of errors
+which are selected or ignored.
+
+Each code consists of an upper case ASCII letter followed by three digits.
+The recommendation is to use a different prefix for each plugin. A list of the
+known prefixes is published below:
+
+- ``E***``/``W***``: `pep8 errors and warnings
+  <http://pep8.readthedocs.org/en/latest/intro.html#error-codes>`_
+- ``F***``: PyFlakes codes (see below)
+- ``C9**``: McCabe complexity plugin `mccabe
+  <https://github.com/flintwork/mccabe>`_
+- ``N8**``: Naming Conventions plugin `pep8-naming
+  <https://github.com/flintwork/pep8-naming>`_
+
+
+The original PyFlakes does not provide error codes.  Flake8 patches the
+PyFlakes messages to add the following codes:
+
++------+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
+| code | sample message                                                     |
