Instead of passing everything on the command line you may also choose to have a config file. You can configure errors to ignore but also files to exclude.
This is what our
.flake8 file looks like;
[flake8] # W291 - we dont care about trailing whitespace # E302 - one line between functions is fine ignore = W291,E302 exclude = ignore_this.py
ignore_this.py file merely contains an import statement that is not used.
import pandas as pd
This is not a good python file to have lying around but it does demonstrate how flake8 can be configured to ignore certain files.
