  • Prospector vs running pylint/pycodestyle/mypy/etc individually?
    2 projects | | 25 Sep 2022
    I've been using linters like pylint and pycodestyle/pep8 for a while, but only recently came across the PyCQA project prospector. If I understand correctly, it basically wraps the other linting tools and gives them less-noisy defaults. It looks like it also has optional support for tools like mypy, bandit (security issues), and vulture (dead code detection).

    Looking into it, I'm surprised as well. They're also both PyCQA projects, albeit with different maintainers. It's also kind of odd that prospector's pre-commit config runs both prospector and flake8 -- that seems redundant.
