This linter plugin for SublimeLinter provides an interface to pylint. It will be used with files that have the "python" syntax.


SublimeLinter must be installed in order to use this plugin.

Please use Package Control to install the linter plugin.

Before using this plugin, ensure that pylint (1.0 or later) is installed on your system. To install pylint, do the following:

  1. Install Python and pip. If you plan to code in Python 3, you will need to install pip for Python 3 as well.

  2. Install pylint by typing the following in a terminal, replacing ‘x’ with the minor version installed on your system:

    # For python 2.x
    [sudo] pip-2.x install pylint
    # For python 3.x
    [sudo] pip-3.x install pylint
    # On Windows, for python 2.x
    c:\Python2x\Scripts\pip.exe install pylint
    # On Windows, for python 3.x
    c:\Python3x\Scripts\pip.exe install pylint

Please make sure that the path to pylint is available to SublimeLinter. The docs cover troubleshooting PATH configuration.


Pylint can be configured using .pylintrc configuration files and inline comments, more information in the pylint docs.
