typing-text-str-alias (UP019)#

Derived from the pyupgrade linter.

Fix is sometimes available.

What it does#

Checks for uses of typing.Text.

Why is this bad?#

typing.Text is an alias for str, and only exists for Python 2 compatibility. As of Python 3.11, typing.Text is deprecated. Use str instead.


from typing import Text

foo: Text = "bar"

Use instead:

foo: str = "bar"
