Keep in mind that the codespell hook is not a perfect spelling checking mechanism. It will merely look for common mistakes and it needs to be able to deal with code as well.
The config file now looks like this.
# See https://pre-commit.com for more information # See https://pre-commit.com/hooks.html for more hooks repos: - repo: https://github.com/pre-commit/pre-commit-hooks rev: v2.4.0 hooks: - id: trailing-whitespace - id: end-of-file-fixer - id: check-yaml - id: check-added-large-files - id: check-ast - id: check-json - repo: https://gitlab.com/pycqa/flake8 rev: 8f9b4931b9a28896fb43edccb23016a7540f5b82 hooks: - id: flake8 - repo: https://github.com/codespell-project/codespell rev: v1.16.0 hooks: - id: codespell name: codespell description: Checks for common misspellings in text files. entry: codespell --ignore-words ignore-spelling-words.txt readme.md code.py language: python types: [text]
And this will be able to find spelling errors. Even the ones in your code!
