The warnings should also show when you're using an IDE like PyCharm or 
VS Studio Code. Of course it's difficult to completely cleanup a large 
legacy code base. One strategy is to just cleanup the code you're 
currently working on, following the boy-scout rule - always leaving the 
code behind in a better state than you found it, or to concentrate on 
one issue at a time, like W605 - you can always filter your flake8 or 
pylint output for a special warning. You can also exclude less relevant 
warnings in flake8 or pylint, and concentrate on the more important 
ones, and then gradually add rules to the config. Another strategy to 
avoid the formatting related warnings is to use automatic formatting 
with "black".
