Code style

The python code is verified against flake8 and formatted with black.

  • You can run tox -e black to check that the files are well formatted.
  • You can run tox -e black-run to format them if needed.
  • You can include the .hgrc to your own .hgrc to automatically run black before each commit/amend. This can be done by writing %include ../.hgrc at the end of your .hgrc.
