Automatic Python Code Format with GitHub Actions

This post introduces a method for beautifying Python Code with GitHub Actions. The method utilizes three tools: autopep8, Black, isort. In addition, a Pull Request, which contains formatted codes is created by GitHub Actions.

The YAML file shows the configuration of the automatic code formatter.
