Python Linter Comparison 2022

After personally reviewing all of them, I've selected the following as must-haves: Pyflakes, Mypy, and Black. If you'd like additional tools, I also liked: Radon, Pyroma, and docformatter.

You might have different needs and values than I, so in this blog post I give my reasoning and views for each linter.
