    If you're looking for just good automated error checking, I personally use a bunch of flake8 plugins via pre-commit hooks: flake8-bugbear, flake8-builtins, flake8-bandit, etc. You can find a bunch of sites that give recommended plugins and you just need to pick which ones you care about :)

    flake8 is Python style checker based on PEP8(Python Enhance Proposal 8). black is a good code formatter. But some items such as Documentation String, black is not provided the check option. flake8 not only helps for lack of black but also can be easily applied with black.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing pyre-check and flake8 you can also consider the following projects:

pyright - Static type checker for Python

black - The uncompromising Python code formatter [Moved to: https://github.com/psf/black]

mypy - Optional static typing for Python

pytype - A static type analyzer for Python code

yapf - A formatter for Python files

typeshed - Collection of library stubs for Python, with static types

typing - Python static typing home. Contains the source for typing_extensions and the documentation. Also hosts a user help forum.

pre-commit - A framework for managing and maintaining multi-language pre-commit hooks.

isort - A Python utility / library to sort imports.
