In the last weeks, we learned that several teams are in a similar situation:
For example, if you want Sourcery to review only the code you haven't committed yet:
sourcery review --diff "git diff" .
If you want to review your changes compared to the
sourcery review --diff "git diff main" .
--diff option is also the best way to configure Sourcery in
CI environments. You
probably want to review the changes compared to the branch you want to merge
For example, for PRs to the
main branch, you could set up a script like that
in your CI:
pip install sourcery
# Store your Sourcery token as a secret in your CI environment.
sourcery login --token $SOURCERY_TOKEN
sourcery review --check --diff "git diff main" .
Another way to catch code quality issues early is a
Again, the recommended way to set this up is with the
- repo: https://github.com/sourcery-ai/sourcery
- id: sourcery
# The best way to use Sourcery in a pre-commit hook
# is to review only changed lines:
args: [--diff=git diff HEAD, --no-summary]
With the finetuning opportunities of the
--diff option, you can also consider
introducing more advanced rules to your codebase.
sourcery review --enable google-python-style-guide .
