Using isort with pre-commit
isort provides official support for pre-commit.
isort pre-commit step
To use isort's official pre-commit integration add the following config:
- repo: https://github.com/pycqa/isort rev: 5.6.3 hooks: - id: isort name: isort (python) - id: isort name: isort (cython) types: [cython] - id: isort name: isort (pyi) types: [pyi]
repos section of your projects
Older versions of isort used a lot of magic to determine import placement, that could easily break when running on CI/CD.
To fix this, a utilitiy called
seed-isort-config was created. Since isort 5 however, the project has drastically improved its placement
logic and ensured a good level of consistency across environments.
If you have a step in your pre-commit config called
seed-isort-config or similar, it is highly recommend that you remove this.
It is guaranteed to slow things down, and can conflict with isort's own module placement logic.
