How to use PyLint? + some requests for enhancements
Hi Eric developers,
first of all thank you very much for the excellent IDE.
I had mentioned it as most recommended IDE in
Could you answer how to use PyLint plugin? I had asked it in
I had downloaded it (today, with latest Eric 4.2.5) as zip-file, I had
installed it (both operations via Eric GUI), still I have only 2 options
in Project -> Check: syntax and indentations (even afetr Eric restart).
I have Linux KUBUNTU 8.10, and same operation doesn't work with Eric
obtained from aptitude (soft updates channel).
Let me also mention some words about Eric enhancements:
1) first of all, it's very inconvenient to scroll file tabs.
Unfortunately, mouse wheel doesn't work for the operation, it would be
very nice to have this working.
2) when "debug" is invoked, Debug-Viewer shows (by default) 1st tab of
the window (file brawser), while I have to switch to 3rd tab (Local
variables). I had done the operation zillions times!! I hope you'll
change default (1st) tab to "Local variables".
3) I had deal with MATLAB, and I have to confess they have MUCH better
handling of bugs and warnings than Eric IDE. Eric has bug image, that is
binded to a certain line of code, that isn't showed all the time
(sometimes it requires much time for scrolling a big file to locate the
line of code marked with bug). MATLAB has slim horizontal lines that are
placed in 0-100% of showed edit window height, so it doesn't matter
