Python Code Formatting Made Simple With Git Pre-commit Hooks

It's hard to maintain coding style guides and standards for software projects.

The problem is that it's really easy to forget about maintaining these standards, which leads to inconsistent codebases where some files are formatted differently than others. This inconsistency makes the code much harder to read and understand, especially when trying to make changes or fix bugs in someone else's project.

Pre-commit hooks are helpful git scripts that run automatically before git commit. These scripts can be used with Black, Isort, and Autoflake tools, which help us easily maintain a clean python codebase.
