Rabbit Hole of Automation

I got carried away with automating my development process when I discovered this pre-commit hook that makes sure your python imports are sorted, like Two Scoops recommends. I noticed a hooks.yaml file that revealed that FalconSocial’s hook is actually a plugin for Yelp’s awesome pre-commit framework.

I almost dove into the hole and started modularizing my hook, and even translating it into python and putting it up on pypi. But it’s not ready yet… and I’ve got a class to teach on how to read and learn from the massive trove of human-generated ASCII text in Gutenberg.
