path-constructor-current-directory (PTH201)#

Derived from the flake8-use-pathlib linter.

Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for pathlib.Path objects that are initialized with the current directory.

Why is this bad?#

The Path() constructor defaults to the current directory, so passing it in explicitly (as ".") is unnecessary.


from pathlib import Path

_ = Path(".")

Use instead:

from pathlib import Path

_ = Path()
