We have a
.pylintrc file committed to git in our project root that is used by our team to disable many useful errors. I would like to know if there is a way to use my own
.pylintrc file on my local machine without modifying the team’s
.pylintrc file in git.
Pylint has an option called
--rcfile which can be used to specify custom
.pylintrc file. Is there a way to specify this option in VS Code settings and get more errors?

python.linting.pylintArgs and add the following line to the list of arguments:
/path/to/your/.pylintrc with the actual path to your
After making this change, save the settings and restart VS Code. Pylint should now use your custom
.pylintrc file and show more errors.
