Has anyone looked into https://github.com/Microsoft/pyright ? Is it worth having support for in pants?
I've never heard of it! It's a mypy competitor?
seems like, just found out about it myself 🙂
Ah, then I'd probably wait to add Pants support for it until there's some user demand...

if it gains any steam then for sure
but again, this is an OSS project, if someone comes along and wants to add pyright support, we won't say no

we might ask that it be in a separate plugin
as far as i know pyright is mainly used for integration with VS Code
even though they say the below, i mostly heard of it being used in VS Code, in the same way, PyCharm type checker is used in PyCharm. Q: What is the long-term plan for Pyright? A: Pyright is now an officially-supported Microsoft type checker for Python. It will continue to be developed and maintained as an open-source project under its original MIT license terms. The Pyright extension for VSCode is a reference implementation and is not guaranteed to be fully functional or maintained long-term.
