E1136 unsubscriptable-object


"Value '%s' is unsubscriptable"


Emitted when a subscripted value doesn’t support subscription (i.e. doesn’t define __getitem__ method or __class_getitem__ for a class).


In the following example, the integer value 1 does not support the subscript access var[0].

def example():
    var = 1
    return var[0]
3:11: E1136: Value 'var' is unsubscriptable

False positives
