Python Checker

A maintainable Python code checker for Sublime Text 3

Screenshot

Once the plugin is installed, it will highlight common problems in your Python code.

Internally it relies on the wonderful pyflakes and pep8 packages.

Installation

Use Package Control.

Python version

By default Python Checker will use the version of Python that came with Sublime Text 3. This currently means Python 3 and can result in problems like undefined name 'unicode' being reported. If you want to use a different version, set the python_interpreter_path option in your project settings:

# <project name>.sublime-project
{
    "settings": {
        "python_interpreter_path": "/usr/bin/python"
    }
}

This is compatible with other plugins including SublimeJEDI.

PEP8 checks

Use the standard pep8 configuration files to control the behaviour including skipping some checks. An example project configration might look like this:

# setup.cfg or tox.ini
[pep8]
ignore = E501,W191
max-line-length = 120
