Hmm. K. I’m comparing the current Makefile for StackStorm. They ran pylint on only a selection of files, so I was looking for a way to do the same by default. I want to completely eliminate the Makefile to simplify development and simplify CI, but I guess I can’t simplify it as far as I thought. To use the filter option, I would need some kind of wrapper to run
./pants lint --skip-pylint
and then skip everything else and just run pylint.
