I have the following line in my header:
This actually changes my Python logging settings, but Pylint thinks it is an unused import. I do not want to remove
unused-import warnings in general, so is it possible to just ignore this one specific line?
I wouldn’t mind having a
.pylintrc for this project, so answers changing a configuration file will be accepted.
Otherwise, something like this will also be appreciated:
import config.logging_settings # pylint: disable-this-line-in-some-way
Pylint message control is documented in the Pylint manual:
Is it possible to locally disable a particular message?
Yes, this feature has been added in Pylint 0.11. This may be done by adding
# pylint: disable=some-message,another-one
at the desired block level or at the end of the desired line of code.
You can use the message code or the symbolic names.
def test(): # Disable all the no-member violations in this function # pylint: disable=no-member ...
global VAR # pylint: disable=global-statement
The manual also has further examples.
There is a wiki that documents all Pylint messages and their codes.
import config.logging_settings # pylint: disable=W0611
That was simple and is specific for that line.
You can and should use the more readable form:
import config.logging_settings # pylint: disable=unused-import
I believe you’re looking for…
import config.logging_settings # @UnusedImport
Note the double space before the comment to avoid hitting other formatting warnings.
Also, depending on your IDE (if you’re using one), there’s probably an option to add the correct ignore rule (e.g., in Eclipse, pressing Ctrl + 1, while the cursor is over the warning, will auto-suggest
Checkout the files in https://github.com/PyCQA/pylint/tree/master/pylint/checkers. I haven’t found a better way to obtain the error name from a message than either Ctrl + F-ing those files or using the GitHub search feature:
If the message is “No name … in module …”, use the search:
No name %r in module %r repo:PyCQA/pylint/tree/master path:/pylint/checkers
Or, to get fewer results:
"No name %r in module %r" repo:PyCQA/pylint/tree/master path:/pylint/checkers
GitHub will show you:
"E0611": ( "No name %r in module %r", "no-name-in-module", "Used when a name cannot be found in a module.",
You can then do:
from collections import Sequence # pylint: disable=no-name-in-module
