explicit-f-string-type-conversion (RUF010)#

Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for uses of str(), repr(), and ascii() as explicit type conversions within f-strings.

Why is this bad?#

f-strings support dedicated conversion flags for these types, which are more succinct and idiomatic.

Note that, in many cases, calling str() within an f-string is unnecessary and can be removed entirely, as the value will be converted to a string automatically, the notable exception being for classes that implement a custom __format__ method.


a = "some string"

Use instead:

a = "some string"
