verbose-raise (TRY201)#

Derived from the tryceratops linter.

Fix is always available.

What it does#

Checks for needless exception names in raise statements.

Why is this bad?#

It's redundant to specify the exception name in a raise statement if the exception is being re-raised.


def foo():
    except ValueError as exc:
        raise exc

Use instead:

def foo():
    except ValueError:

Fix safety#

This rule's fix is marked as unsafe, as it doesn't properly handle bound exceptions that are shadowed between the except and raise statements.
