๐Ÿ“œ The SQL Linter for humans.

PyPI - Downloads PyPI GitHub GitHub Repo stars

SQLFluff is an open source, dialect-flexible and configurable SQL linter. Designed with ELT applications in mind, SQLFluff also works with Jinja templating and dbt. SQLFluff will auto-fix most linting errors, allowing you to focus your time on what matters.

Lint ๐Ÿงผ

SQLFluff finds issues with your SQL code and reports them back to you (and your team) automatically so that your code reviews can be more about function and less about form.

Fix ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ

SQLFluff saves time by fixing linting issues found in your code to save you time, and make it easy to have consistent and legible SQL.

Parse ๐Ÿ“œ

SQLFluff parses your SQL to catch a range of syntax issues without needing access to the database, so you can catch mistakes earlier in your development process.

Configure โš™๏ธ

SQLFluff is configurable to work with a range of SQL dialects and style choices. It has opinionated defaults, so you can get going easily, but a range of flexible configuration options to fit your local style.
