pydocstyle 2.1.1

Python docstring style checker

(formerly pep257)

pydocstyle is a static analysis tool for checking compliance with Python docstring conventions.

pydocstyle supports most of PEP 257 out of the box, but it should not be considered a reference implementation.

pydocstyle supports Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and pypy.

Quick Start


pip install pydocstyle


$ pydocstyle in private nested class `meta`:
        D101: Docstring missing in public function `get_user`:
    D300: Use """triple double quotes""" (found '''-quotes)
test:75 in public function `init_database`:
    D201: No blank lines allowed before function docstring (found 1)
