flake8 / docs / config.rst


The behaviour may be configured at two levels.


The user settings are read from the ~/.config/flake8 file. Example:

ignore = E226,E302,E41
max-line-length = 160


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.


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 the :ref:`warning and error codes <error-codes>`).

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
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.
