Type() can hamper productivity
This code insight detects each time type() is used in code
Why you should care
The function isinstance is the best-equipped to handle type checking because it supports inheritance (e.g. an instance of a derived class is an instance of a base class, too). Therefore isinstance should be used whenever type comparison is required
Type() negatively affects productivity bcause it creates improper comparisons
