## hghooks

hghooks is a simple module that adds several useful hooks for use in Mercurial hooks system.

Right now it includes hooks for:

• pep8 checking of python files
• pyflakes checking of python files
• checking for forgotten pdb statements in python files

### Documentation

#### Installation

hghooks is distributed as a Python egg so is quite easy to install. You just need to type the following command:

easy_install hghooks


And Easy Install will go to the Cheeseshop and grab the last hghooks for you. It will also install it for you at no extra cost :-)

#### Usage

To use one of the hooks provided by this package edit your hgrc file of your Mercurial repository and add these lines:

[hooks]
pretxncommit.pep8 = python:hghooks.pep8hook
pretxncommit.pyflakes = python:hghooks.pyflakeshook
pretxncommit.pdb = python:hghooks.pdbhook


You can add as many hooks as you need. From version 0.2.0 it supports the pretxnchangegroup hook too.

#### How to skip the hooks

If you need to avoid a hook for a specific changeset you can add one or more of the following keywords to the commit message: no-pep8, no-pyflakes and no-pdb.

On the other hand, if you want to avoid a hook in a specific file you can add a comment somewhere in the file saying so. For example:

# hghooks: no-pyflakes no-pdb


in this case the pyflakes and pdb hooks will skip this file. The "# hghooks:" prolog is important and you have to type it exactly like that. Then add the skip keyworkds separated by spaces.
