unconventional-import-alias (ICN001)#

Derived from the flake8-import-conventions linter.

Fix is sometimes available.

What it does#

Checks for imports that are typically imported using a common convention, like import pandas as pd, and enforces that convention.

Why is this bad?#

Consistency is good. Use a common convention for imports to make your code more readable and idiomatic.

For example, import pandas as pd is a common convention for importing the pandas library, and users typically expect Pandas to be aliased as pd.


import pandas

Use instead:

import pandas as pd
