Patches welcome! ✨ 🍰 ✨

Any tool can pipe code through Black using its stdio mode (just use `-` as the file name). The formatted code will be returned on stdout (unless --check was passed). Black will still emit messages on stderr but that shouldn’t affect your use case.

This can be used for example with PyCharm’s or IntelliJ’s File Watchers.
