    Flake8 is a popular [2] command-line utility for enforcing style consistency across code in the Python programming language. It is a tool that combines various tools for checking the style and quality of Python code, including PyFlakes, pycodestyle (formerly known as Pep8), and Ned Batchelder's McCabe script. The name 'Flake8' is derived from a combination of 'pyflakes' and 'pep8', the names of the tools it integrates[3]

    It enforces the style recommended by PEP 8, the Python style guide[4]

    It can be used as an application but can also be integrated in vscode[5], IntelliSense [6], emacs[7], vim [8] and others editors.
