What is Flake8?

Flake8 is a command-line tool to help developers enforce a style guide
for their project. It uses pycodestyle to enforce PEP 8's style guide,
pyflakes to lint the code base, and mccabe to provide complexity

What's new in 3.0.0b1?

See our release notes:


You can install 3.0.0b1 from PyPI, simply use either:

    pip install flake8==3.0.0b1


    pip install --pre flake8

This breaks my plugin

We're tracking which plugins are broken by this release on
https://gitlab.com/pycqa/flake8/issues/149 and I am submitting pull
requests to help those authors adapt their plugins for 2.x and 3.x

Please test this version and report any problems you find with it.

Thank you!
