Try using pytest to manage our various tests; even though right now
they're only invoking binaries and not really running any python-native

Create tests/, and add test_lint.py which calls out to mypy, flake8,
pylint and isort to enforce the standards in this directory.

Add pytest to the setup.cfg development dependencies; add a pytest
configuration section as well; run it in verbose mode.

Finally, add pytest to the Pipfile environment and lock the new
dependencies. (Note, this also updates an unrelated dependency; but the
only way to avoid this is to pin that dependency at a lower version --
which there is no reason to do at present.)

Provided you have the right development dependencies (mypy, flake8,
isort, pylint, and now pytest) You should be able to run "pytest" from
the python folder to run all of these linters with the correct

Can't you simply use "python_version >= '3.6'" instead?


This file is generated; I don't really actually know what these markers mean
or to whom. I can't edit it because it's checksummed.

If the file is only generated, why do we need that in the repository? ...
that only calls for trouble if other people try to apply changes here...

Because it is generated with respect to a given point in time; this specifies the exact loadout of packages that will be used to run the linter.

If you remove it, every time you run "pipenv lock" again, it will use newer and newer packages each time ... which defeats the purpose of having a lockfile to begin wtih.

The intention is that this lockfile only gets updated as an intentional action; using newer dependencies and so on for the test environment is a conscious action.

You are free to use the latest and greatest packages yourself if you choose; just skip the venv step -- but then you're on your own for making sure that environment works. *this* environment receives my full-throated support. The tests will and must pass on *this* environment.
