6.1.3 Exercise

  • Use a linter to run through your code and identify style issues.

  • Edit your code to improve the style compatibility, based on the feedback from your linter. If you work with Python, consider applying autopep8 to automatically fix linting issues.

  • For the R users: a course participant found styler, which may do the same for R!

  • If you find code that is hard to read, or variable names that need adjusting, make a note to work on it. (Again, use #TODO or another consistent label!)
