HOWTO Pylint Integration in IntelliJ 14

Marc Rufer 12 Jun 2015 IntelliJ IDEA JetBrains python Pylint

I was asked, if it’s possible to integrate pylint into JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA 14. After having a quick look at Google I found a blog post about the integration of pylint. The mentioned blog post references an older IntelliJ version and the author runs IntelliJ on Linux. Because I run IntelliJ 14 on Windows I decided to shortly describe the configuration for this combination here.

I presuppose that IntelliJ 14, python and pylint are installed and that the following path are added to the Windows PATH variable (Paths depend on the installation location)

  • C:\python27
  • C:\python27\Scripts

To integrate pylint into IntelliJ IDEA 14 open your IDEA and go to Settings (Ctrl + Alt + s)

  • Navigate to Tools > External Tools

    pylint integration screnshot 1

  • Add a new External Tool by clicking on +

    pylint integration screnshot 2

    In tool settings section you have to add the path to your pylint.exe file to the programm textfield. Referencing pylint.bat won’t work.

  • Add a new Output Filter

    pylint integration screnshot 3

Now as you are done you can execute pylint over the Tools menu pylint integration screnshot 4

The result of the pylint code analysis will then be printed to the run console in IntelliJ.
