bad-quotes-multiline-string (Q001)#

Derived from the flake8-quotes linter.

Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for multiline strings that use single quotes or double quotes, depending on the value of the lint.flake8-quotes.multiline-quotes setting.

Why is this bad?#

Consistency is good. Use either single or double quotes for multiline strings, but be consistent.


foo = '''

Assuming multiline-quotes is set to double, use instead:

foo = """


Formatter compatibility#

We recommend against using this rule alongside the formatter. The formatter enforces double quotes for multiline strings, making the rule redundant.
