The aim of this module is to provide a common base representation of python source code. It is currently the library powering pylint's capabilities.
It provides a compatible representation which comes from the
module. It rebuilds the tree generated by the builtin _ast module by
recursively walking down the AST and building an extended ast. The new
node classes have additional methods and attributes for different
usages. They include some support for static inference and local name
scopes. Furthermore, astroid can also build partial trees by inspecting living
Extract the tarball, jump into the created directory and run::

astroid 2.0 is currently available for Python 3 only. If you want Python 2 support, use an older version of astroid (though note that these versions are no longer supported).
Tests are in the 'test' subdirectory. To launch the whole tests suite, you can use
tox pytest astroid
