Pylint is the most popular Python source code analyzer which looks for programming errors, helps enforce a coding standard and detects some code smells. It is possible to write plugins to add your own checks.
- To understand how a pylint plugin works
- To get some hands-on experience with writing plugins
- To be able to write a non-complex plugin by the end of the workshop
- Introduction to how pylint works
- Implementing a plugin skeleton - hands-on exercise
- Invoking the plugin - hands-on exercise
- Parsing Abstract Syntax Trees in the Python shell – hands-on exercise
Putting together a minimalistic plugin - hands-on exercise
Formulating (your) ideas into actionable goals
- Writing code and code review - hands-on exercise
- Testing your plugin
Developers who work with Python (and/or Django) and are fans of static analytic tools and/or QA engineers who work with the project source code directly! In order to get the maximum of this workshop you need to have moderate skills in programming with Python!
- Python 3.6 installed and running
- Text editor or IDE of your choice – you must know how to use them !
- virtualenv (virtualenv-wrapper) tools installed and running so you can configure a working environment for your pylint plugins
- pylint >= 1.8 installed inside the virtualenv
Try to identify code patterns which are not detected by standard pylint checks so that you can write a plugin for them. Practice patters will be provided by trainer.
Try to keep the simplest checks at the top of your list and the more complex ones at the bottom.
