The behaviour may be configured at two levels.
The user settings are read from the
~/.config/flake8 file (or the
~/.flake8 file on Windows).
[flake8] ignore = E226,E302,E41 max-line-length = 160 exclude = tests/* max-complexity = 10
At the project level, a
tox.ini file or a
setup.cfg file is read
if present. Only the first file is considered. If this file does not
[flake8] section, no project specific configuration is loaded.
ignore option is not in the configuration and not in the arguments,
only the error codes
E241/E242 are ignored
(see the warning and error codes).
This is a (likely incomplete) list of settings that can be used in your config
file. In general, any settings that pep8 supports we also support and we add
the ability to set
max-complexity as well.
