flake8 does not work in windows

Jeremy Cantrell avatarJeremy Cantrell created an issue

Every python package that I've used on windows creates a bat script wrapper for any included scripts (this is so that windows will recognize the script as executable).

I suspect that the problem is with the setup.py, but I'm not sure what. Here's the pyflakes setup.py that does generate a bat script wrapper.

    This could be solved by declaring entry points for setuptools/distribute (see b5e41d97cc9d, preferable for virtualenvs) and providing a simple flake8.bat file when setuptools is not available. For example:

    @echo off
    python -m flake8.run %*

    True, I believed the batch file was an alternative to the entry point but it is complementary when setuptools is not available. I ignored it since setuptools/distribute are always available within a virtualenv, which is the way I always work.

    In fact, I would have the tendency to include a .cmd file instead of a batch. What do you think?

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
