string-or-bytes-too-long (PYI053)#

Derived from the flake8-pyi linter.

Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for the use of string and bytes literals longer than 50 characters in stub (.pyi) files.

Why is this bad?#

If a function has a default value where the string or bytes representation is greater than 50 characters, it is likely to be an implementation detail or a constant that varies depending on the system you're running on.

Consider replacing such constants with ellipses (...).


def foo(arg: str = "51 character stringgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg") -> None:

Use instead:

def foo(arg: str = ...) -> None:
