Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for unused mapping keys in printf-style format strings.

Why is this bad?#

Unused named placeholders in printf-style format strings are unnecessary, and likely indicative of a mistake. They should be removed.


"Hello, %(name)s" % {"greeting": "Hello", "name": "World"}

Use instead:

"Hello, %(name)s" % {"name": "World"}
