Black 22.1.0 (via) Black, the uncompromising code formatter for Python, has had its first stable non-beta release after almost four years of releases. I adopted Black a few years ago for all of my projects and I wouldn’t release Python code without it now—the productivity boost I get from not spending even a second thinking about code formatting and indentation is huge. I know Django has been holding off on adopting it until a stable release was announced, so hopefully that will happen soon. # 30th January 2022, 1:23 am
