yala 1.3.3

Yet Another Linter Aggregator

YALA combines many linters to improve the quality of your code. Other projects may come to your mind, but does anyone have all the features below?

Works with latest linters
Yala uses linters’ outputs and doesn’t break on API changes.
Same defaults
No changes to linters’ default configuration.
Easy to configure
Set any command-line option for any linter (even pylint!) in one INI file: setup.cfg.
Add any linter to any language.
Just a few lines do add your preferred linter.
Run linters in parallel and sort output by filename and line number.

Current Status

For now, there are some Python linters available: isort, Pylint, Pycodestyle, Pydocstyle, Pyflakes and Radon (cyclomatic complexity and maintainability index).


Requires Python >= 3.6.

sudo pip3.6 install --upgrade yala

If you are willing to hack yala’s code, run the command below in this README’s folder:

sudo pip3.6 install -e .[dev]


Just call yala followed by the files and/or folders to lint.

Linters’ options

You can configure the linters as explained in their docs (e.g. isort section in setup.cfg). To change the command line options for a linter, create a setup.cfg file in the same folder you run yala from. The default configuration is in the file yala/setup.cfg that you can copy and customize (you can remove unchanged lines). For example, to output grades C and lower for Radon Maintainability Index (default is D and lower), add the following to setup.cfg:

radon mi args = --min C
pylint args = --disable=TODO

Besides “radon mi”, it’s possible to define cli options for “isort”, “pycodestyle”, “pydocstyle”, “pyflakes”, “pylint” and “radon cc” (the names are exactly as they are called in command line). Of course, you can still use other means provided by each linter (e.g. “isort” section).

Adding a linter

Check the file yala/ and feel free to ask for help.
