R1725 super-with-arguments


'Consider using Python 3 style super() without arguments'


Emitted when calling the super() builtin with the current class and instance. On Python 3 these arguments are the default and they can be omitted.


class A:

class B(A):
    def __init__(self, some_arg):
        super(B, self).__init__()
        self.something = some_arg
6:8: R1725: Consider using Python 3 style super() without arguments

Why bother?

The Python 3 way without arguments is easier to read and requires less work when changing the class name.

Also see PEP 3135: New super.
