Re: OCA Coding Standards and recommended IDEs

Without pushing or recommending for a particular IDE, the OCA could have a repository under the Tools Maintainers PSC for each one allowing anyone willing to improve its tools to collaborate with others.

Having an Odoo plugin (like pylint-odoo or Magento module for example) for IDE X in the X platform of sharing plugins could encourage X users to hear about Odoo and join us. We should favor interactions with other communities.

Oleg, Sandy (bwrsandman) made some stuff that we can share.

Following the new organization, this is a decision left to the Tools Maintainers PSC (hence the cc to tools).

My 2 cents,

Agree. The main idea behind of suggestion - is improving quality and quantity of iterations need to review.
Idea with limitations on supported editors just allows to build and maintain base of snippets for them. For example, for Sublime they already exists, so no big job to review them and correct, if needed to OCA needs. 
Maybe already there are for other Editors (somebody created for personal use and willing to share). 

And yes, that is something that will be good to have under maintainer tools.

It could be interesting to provide/share some snipet files in maintainer-tools for example: it would increase the quality of received PR.
I am not in favor of pushing one or another tool

I disagree: I don't think we should support / encourage specific IDEs or other tools. These are very personal choices.

Same here. Please don't do it.

As for tools, I agree that we'd need a simple command line wrapper that lints according to the OCA conventions. Then anyone will be able to tell their editor of choice to use it instead of i.e. "flake8".

Everyone is free to use a text editor that has no flake8 support, so adding those checks you say in travis would be wiser IMHO, as it is now with flake8.
