Pylint is a source code bug and quality checker for the Python programming language. It follows the style recommended by PEP 8, the Python style guide.[2] It is similar to Pychecker but includes the following features:

  • Checking the length of each line
  • Checking if variable names are well-formed according to the project's coding standard
  • Checking if declared interfaces are truly implemented[3]

It is also equipped with the Pyreverse module that allows UML diagrams to be generated from Python code.
