'%s name "%s" doesn\'t conform to %s'
Used when the name doesn’t conform to naming rules associated to its type (constant, variable, class…).
Pylint by default uses the convention for names from PEP 8.
In the following example all the conventions are violated.
some_const = 1 def functionName(ARG_NAME): VARIABLE_NAME = 1 class cls_name: def METHOD_NAME(self): pass
1:0: C0103: Constant name "some_const" doesn't conform to UPPER_CASE naming style 3:0: C0103: Function name "functionName" doesn't conform to snake_case naming style 3:0: C0103: Argument name "ARG_NAME" doesn't conform to snake_case naming style 4:4: C0103: Variable name "VARIABLE_NAME" doesn't conform to snake_case naming style 6:0: C0103: Class name "cls_name" doesn't conform to PascalCase naming style 7:4: C0103: Method name "METHOD_NAME" doesn't conform to snake_case naming style
Here is what it should look like:
SOME_CONST = 1 def function_name(arg_name): variable_name = 1 class ClsName: def method_name(self): pass
No issues found.
Names are one of the most important aspects of software maintenance. With
good, consistent names code becomes more understandable. It makes sense to
have a convention on how to use different naming styles because it allows you
to have a quick idea what kind of object a name referers to. E.g. when
MyFancyView you can assume you are looking at a class.
