autoflake

A tool to remove unused imports and variables from Python code. More information: https://github.com/myint/autoflake.

  • Remove unused variables from a single file and display the diff:

autoflake --remove-unused-variables {{file.py}}

  • Remove unused imports from multiple files and display the diffs:

autoflake --remove-all-unused-imports {{file1.py}} {{file2.py}} {{file3.py}}

  • Remove unused variables from a file, overwriting the file:

autoflake --remove-unused-variables --in-place {{file.py}}

  • Remove unused variables recursively from all files in a directory, overwriting each file:

autoflake --remove-unused-variables --in-place --recursive {{path/to/directory}}
