Python-mode is a vim plugin that helps you to create python code very quickly by utilizing libraries including pylint, rope, pydoc, pyflakes, pep8, and mccabe for features like static analysis, refactoring, folding, completion, documentation, and more.

The plugin contains all you need to develop python applications in Vim.

There is no need to install pylint, rope or any other Python libraries on your system.

  • Support Python version 2.6+ and 3.2+
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Virtualenv support
  • Run python code (<leader>r)
  • Add/remove breakpoints (<leader>b)
  • Improved Python indentation
  • Python folding
  • Python motions and operators (]], 3[[, ]]M, vaC, viM, daC, ciM, ...)
  • Code checking (pylint, pyflakes, pylama, ...) that can be run simultaneously (:PymodeLint)
  • Autofix PEP8 errors (:PymodeLintAuto)
  • Search in python documentation (K)
  • Code refactoring <rope refactoring library> (rope)
  • Strong code completion (rope)
  • Go to definition (<C-c>g for :RopeGotoDefinition)
  • And more, more ...

See (very old) screencast here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67OZNp9Z0CQ (sorry for quality, this is my first screencast) Another old presentation here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhqsjUUHj6g

To read python-mode documentation in Vim, see :help pymode.txt

Requirements

  • VIM >= 7.3 (mostly features needed +python or +python3 support) (also --with-features=big if you want g:pymode_lint_signs)

How to install

Using pathogen (recommended)

% cd ~/.vim
% mkdir -p bundle && cd bundle
% git clone git://github.com/klen/python-mode.git
  • Enable pathogen in your ~/.vimrc:

    " Pathogen load
    filetype off
    
    call pathogen#infect()
    call pathogen#helptags()
    
    filetype plugin indent on
    syntax on
    

Manually

% git clone git://github.com/klen/python-mode.git
% cd python-mode
% cp -R * ~/.vim

Then rebuild helptags in vim:

:helptags ~/.vim/doc/

Note

filetype-plugin (:help filetype-plugin-on) and filetype-indent (:help filetype-indent-on) must be enabled to use python-mode.

Debian packages

Repository URL: http://klen.github.io/python-mode/deb/ Install with commands:

add-apt-repository http://klen.github.io/python-mode/deb main
apt-get update
apt-get install vim-python-mode

If you are getting the message: "The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available":

apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys B5DF65307000E266

vim-python-mode using vim-addons, so after installation just enable python-mode with command:

vim-addons install python-mode

Troubleshooting

If your python-mode doesn't work:

  1. Load Vim with only python-mode enabled (use debug.vim from pymode):

    vim -u <path_to_pymode>/debug.vim
    

And try to repeat your case. If no error occurs, seems like problem isn't in the plugin.

  1. Type :PymodeTroubleshooting

And fix any warnings or copy the output and send it to me. (For example, by creating a new github issue if one does not already exist for the problem).

Customization

You can override the default key bindings by redefining them in your .vimrc, for example:

" Override go-to.definition key shortcut to Ctrl-]
let g:pymode_rope_goto_definition_bind = "<C-]>"

" Override run current python file key shortcut to Ctrl-Shift-e
let g:pymode_run_bind = "<C-S-e>"

" Override view python doc key shortcut to Ctrl-Shift-d
let g:pymode_doc_bind = "<C-S-d>"

Documentation

Documentation is available in your vim :help pymode
