Elpy, the Emacs Lisp Python Environment
Elpy is an Emacs package to bring powerful Python editing to Emacs. It combines and configures a number of other packages, both written in Emacs Lisp as well as Python.
Elpy is fully documented at readthedocs.io:
First, install the required Python packages::
# Either of these pip install rope pip install jedi # flake8 for code checks pip install flake8 # and autopep8 for automatic PEP8 formatting pip install autopep8 # and yapf for code formatting pip install yapf
One-line install: pip install jedi flake8 autopep8
Evaluate this in your
(require 'package) (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa-stable" . "https://stable.melpa.org/packages/"))
M-x package-refresh-contents to load the contents of the
new repository, and
M-x package-install RET elpy RET to install
Users of Debian ≥10 or Ubuntu ≥18.10 can skip the instructions above this line and may simply install Elpy and all of its recommended dependencies with the following command::
sudo apt install elpa-elpy
Elpy can then be activated by running
Finally, to make this automatic, add the following to your
(package-initialize) (elpy-enable) ;; (package-initialize) should already exist at the top of the init ;; file on Debian-derived systems, thus (elpy-enable) should be all ;; that is required.
