Formats docstrings to follow Python PEP 257 (Python 3)


Docformatter currently automatically formats docstrings to follow a subset of the PEP 257 conventions.

Below are the relevant items quoted from PEP 257:

 * For consistency, always use triple double quotes around docstrings,
 * Triple quotes are used even though the string fits on one line,
 * Multi-line docstrings consist of a summary line just like a one-line
   docstring, followed by a blank line, followed by a more elaborate
 * Unless the entire docstring fits on a line, place the closing quotes on
   a line by themselves.

Docformatter also handles some of the PEP 8 conventions:

  * Don't write string literals that rely on significant trailing whitespace
    Such trailing whitespace is visually indistinguishable and some editors
    (or more recently, will trim them.
