📜 The SQL Linter for humans¶
Bored of not having a good SQL linter that works with whichever dialect you’re working with? Fluff is an extensible and modular linter designed to help you write good SQL and catch errors and bad SQL before it hits your database.
SQLFluff is still in an open alpha phase - expect the tool to change significantly over the coming months, and expect potentially non-backward compatible api changes to happen at any point. In particular:
0.1.x involved a major re-write of the parser, completely changing the behaviour of the tool with respect to complex parsing.
0.2.x added templating support and a big restructure of rules and changed how users might interact with SQLFluff on templated code.
0.3.x drops support for python 2.7 and 3.4, and also reworks the handling of indentation linting in a potentially not backward compatible way.
Want to see where and how people are using SQLFluff in their projects? Head over to SQLFluff in the Wild for inspiration.
To get started just install the package, make a sql file and then run SQLFluff and point it at the file. For more details or if you don’t have python or pip already installed see Getting Started.
