Crash on multi-threading

On macOS, flake8 might raise this error when calling requests.get(url):

objc[93329]: +[__NSPlaceholderDate initialize] may have been in progress in another thread when fork() was called.
objc[93329]: +[__NSPlaceholderDate initialize] may have been in progress in another thread when fork() was called. We cannot safely call it or ignore it in the fork() child process. Crashing instead. Set a breakpoint on objc_initializeAfterForkError to debug.

To solve this issue, add this environment variable to .bashrc (or the initialization file for your favorite shell):

ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘nitpick.plugins.XXX’

When upgrading to new versions, old plugins might be renamed in setuptools entry points.

But they might still be present in the entry_points.txt plugin metadata in your virtualenv.

$ rg nitpick.plugins.setup ~/Library/Caches/pypoetry/

Remove and recreate the virtualenv; this should fix it.

During development, you can run invoke clean --venv install --dry. It will display the commands that would be executed; remove --dry to actually run them.

Read this page on how to install Invoke.

Executable .tox/lint/bin/pylint not found

You might get this error while running make locally.

  1. Run invoke lint (or tox -e lint directly) to create this tox environment.

  2. Run make again.

Missing rev key when using the default pre-commit styles

If you’re using the default pre-commit styles, you might get this error:

An error has occurred: InvalidConfigError:
==> File .pre-commit-config.yaml
==> At Config()
==> At key: repos
==> At Repository(repo='')
=====> Missing required key: rev
Check the log at /Users/your-name/.cache/pre-commit/pre-commit.log

This happens because the default styles don’t have a rev key. Currently, this is not possible because the pre-commit plugin doesn’t support it.

To solve this, you can run pre-commit autoupdate to update the styles to the latest version, as recommended in the official docs.
