invalid-function-name (N802)#

Derived from the pep8-naming linter.

What it does#

Checks for functions names that do not follow the snake_case naming convention.

Why is this bad?#

PEP 8 recommends that function names follow snake_case:

Function names should be lowercase, with words separated by underscores as necessary to improve readability. mixedCase is allowed only in contexts where that’s already the prevailing style (e.g., to retain backwards compatibility.

Names can be excluded from this rule using the lint.pep8-naming.ignore-names or lint.pep8-naming.extend-ignore-names configuration options. For example, to ignore all functions starting with test_ from this rule, set the lint.pep8-naming.extend-ignore-names option to ["test_*"].


def myFunction():

Use instead:

def my_function():
