Very often, developers mess up the executable permissions and shebangs of Python files. For example, sometimes the executable permission was accidentally granted, sometimes it is forgotten.
This is a Flake8 plugin that ensures the executable permissions and shebangs of Python files are correctly set. Specifically, it checks the following errors:
- EXE001: Shebang is present but the file is not executable.
- EXE002: The file is executable but no shebang is present.
- EXE003: Shebang is present but does not contain "python".
- EXE004: There is whitespace before shebang.
- EXE005: There are blank or comment lines before shebang.
pip install flake8-executable
Normally, after flake8-executable is installed, invoking flake8 will also run this plugin. For more details, check out the Flake8 plugin page.
