PyLint is a parser for Python code.

Embedded analysis in Themis

To devolve to Themis the analysis of your Python code to PyLint, you should configure first the embedded linters mode for your source. You may then add a sub-plugin for PyLint.

PyLint is performed by taking into account a configuration file. This default file is this one generated by the order:

pylint --generate-rcfile

You have the possibility to edit at any one time the content of this file.

If a such configuration file is present on your source code repository, you may use it thanks to the combination of 2 following parameters:

  • Use the existing pylintrc file: true/false. Indicate true to take into account a file present on your repository.
  • Way of the pylintrc file: indicate the relative of the configuration file from the root of your source code. Example: src/pylintrc. Without this parameter, the configuration file will not be taken into account.

If you activate the use of your own configuration file, the "Configuration de PyLint" parameter is not taken into account in the analysis. It does not reflect also in no way the content of the configuration file present on your source code repository.
