flake8 / README


Flake8 is a wrapper around these tools:

- PyFlakes
- pep8
- Ned's MacCabe script

Flake8 runs all tools by launching the single 'flake8' script, but ignores pep8 
and PyFlakes extended options and just uses defaults. It displays the warnings
in a per-file, merged output.

It also adds a few features:

- files that starts with this header are skipped::

    # flake8: noqa

- lines that contains a "# NOQA" comment at the end will not issue a warning
- a Mercurial hook
- more things to come..

Original projects:

- pep8:
- PyFlakes:
- McCabe:

Mercurial hook

To use the Mercurial hook on any *commit* or *qrefresh*, change your .hg/rc file
like this::

    commit =
    qrefresh =

    strict = 0

If *strict* option is set to **1**, any warning will block the commit. When
*strict* is set to **0**, warnings are just displayed in the standard output.
