Pylint is a lint-like tool for Python code. It performs almost all the verifications that pychecker does, and additionally can perform some stylistic verification and coding standard enforcements. The checked code is assigned a mark based on the number and the severity of the encountered problems. The previous mark of a given piece of code is cached so that you can see if the code quality has improved since the last check.
