Files not being excluded via Atom, but command line flake8 does

See original GitHub issue

This is the setup.cfg file. I know that the linter reads the file because ignore is honored so there’s something going on with the exclude. The first screenshot shows the linter raising an error in apollo/config/settings/ while the second screenshot clearly shows that this file was ignored. Let me know what additional info is needed.

Using Mac OS, virtualenvwrapper

ignore = D100, D210, D400, D413
exclude =
max-line-length = 99
max-complexity = 10

Location of flake8: ~/Developer/.virtualenvs/apollo/bin/flake8

I am looking into this.

Arcanemaguscommented, Dec 22, 2017

However, in any other situation where the configuration file is not in the project’s root, Flake8 does not recognize the file.

@lucasdf Ideally these providers should be “the same as running the tool in the CLI”, unfortunately what that actually means can get really tricky. I generally follow the rules of:

  • “if you are in the directory of the file and run the CLI tool, the provider should match that”
  • “if you are in the project root (as seen by Atom) and run the CLI tool, the provider should match that”

Which one of those a provider falls under is just the start of the trickiness 😉.

I think this provider should follow the second one, unless this issue is describing a situation where that doesn’t match what running flake8 in the CLI does, in which case we may need to change it?
