DMYPY(1) Mypy DMYPY(1)

NAME

dmypy - mypy daemon mode client

SYNOPSIS

dmypy [OPTIONS...] COMMAND] [COMMAND OPTIONS ...]

DESCRIPTION

Mypy can run as a long-running daemon (server) process allowing to perform type checking much faster, since program state cached from previous runs is kept in memory and doesn’t have to be read from the file system on each run. The server also uses finer-grained dependency tracking to reduce the amount of work that needs to be done.

If you have a large codebase to check, running mypy using the mypy daemon can be 10 or more times faster than the regular command-line mypy tool, especially if your workflow involves running mypy repeatedly after small edits – which is often a good idea, as this way you’ll find errors sooner.

Dmypy is a command-line client to send type-checking requests to the server.

COMMANDS

start [--log-file FILE] [--timeout TIMEOUT] ARGS...

Start a mypy daemon.

Runs a new mypy daemon, passing regular mypy flags to it. If --log-file is used, directs daemon stdout/stderr to FILE. --timeout specifies the server shutdown timeout in seconds.

stop

Stop a mypy daemon.

Politely asks the currently running mypy daemon to go away.

kill

Kill a mypy daemon.

Kills the process of the currently running mypy daemon.

restart [--log-file FILE] [--timeout TIMEOUT] ARGS...

Restart a mypy daemon.

Stops the existing and then runs a new mypy daemon, passing regular mypy flags to it. If --log-file is used, directs daemon stdout/stderr to FILE. --timeout specifies the server shutdown timeout in seconds.

status [-v]

Show a mypy daemon status.

If -v or --verbose is used, prints detailed status.

daemon [--timeout TIMEOUT] ARGS...

Run a mypy daemon in the foreground, passing regular mypy flags to it.

--timeout specifies the server shutdown timeout in seconds.

check [-v] [--junit-xml JUNIT_XML] [--perf-stats-file PERF_STATS_FILE] FILE [FILE ...]

Check some files.

Tell the currently running mypy daemon to check some files. This requires the daemon to already be running.

Print detailed status
Write junit.xml to the given file
Write telemetry information to the given file

recheck [-v] [--junit-xml JUNIT_XML] [--perf-stats-file PERF_STATS_FILE] [--update FILE [FILE ...]] [--remove FILE [FILE ...]]

Re-check the previous list of files, with optional modifications. This requires the daemon to already be running.

Print detailed status
Write junit.xml to the given file
Write telemetry information to the given file

run [-v] [--junit-xml JUNIT_XML] [--perf-stats-file PERF_STATS_FILE] [--timeout TIMEOUT] [--log-file FILE] ARGS...

Check some files, (re)starting the daemon if necessary.

Print detailed status
Write junit.xml to the given file
Write telemetry information to the given file
Server shutdown timeout (in seconds)
Direct daemon stdout/stderr to FILE

hang

Hang for 100 seconds.

OPTIONS

Show a help message and exit.
Status file to retrieve daemon details to.
Show program’s version number and exit.
