I have a directory called "Old stuff" that I want
flake8 to not lint code in this directory.
What is the correct syntax to exclude it?
I looked at the documentation for configuring flake8 but did not find what I wanted.
I tried in my
[flake8] max-line-length = 99 exclude = # Don't check the Old directories # Attempt 1 Old\ stuff # Attempt 2 "Old stuff" # Attempt 3 /Old stuff/ # Attempt 4 ./Old stuff/ # Attempt 5 /Old\ stuff/
None of those syntax works.
Same problem when trying to exclude on the command line:
flake8 --exclude=Old\ stuff
