We typically use the PyPI MyPy instead of conda to have the most recent MyPy version:
pip install mypy
It’s often useful to have a per-project MyPy configuration file to avoid excessive command line options. Configure MyPy defaults in pyproject.toml:
[tool.mypy] files = ["src", "Examples"] ignore_missing_imports = true strict_optional = false show_column_numbers = true
Where “files” is set appropriately for the project. Making a per-project files is strongly recommended to ensure files aren’t missed in the type check. One can make a system-wide ~/.mypy.ini, that is overridden by the per-project pyproject.toml.
