Automatically fixing Python build errors

You can use autopep8 to fix the most common Python build errors quickly. This is documented on the wiki.

The steps are simple: install autopep8 and run it on your Python file.

pip install autopep8
autopep8 -iv --max-line-length 99 *.py

It doesn’t fix all errors. But when checking the most common errors in the last 4 months, I find that 50-90% of the errors are auto-fixed.

This apart, the wiki also documents the most common errors this doesn’t fix, and how to fix them.
