setuptools-pep8 0.9.0

pep8 command for setuptools

Setuptools pep8 command

Originally based on

This package exposes the pep8 style guide checker as a sub-command of

$ cat
        name='your project',
$ cat setup.cfg
$ python pep8
running pep8
./ W391 blank line at end of file

This invokes pep8 and applies any configuration from your setup.cfg file’s [pep8] section. Typical use cases include simplification of continuous-integration job configurations.



Release date: 29-Dec-2013

Final major release before v1.0 (project goes into maint mode).

Contains non-backwards-compatable changes!

  • All pep8 cmdline options can now be specified on the python pep8 command line
  • pep8 return code is propagated to the python command return code

Non-Functional Changes:

  • Drastic simplification of pep8 setuptools Command implementation
  • Minor changes to testing code (adopt usage of process return code)

Backwards Incompatable Changes:
