Pylint analyzes Python source code

Pylint is a python tool that checks if a module satisfy a coding standard. It can be seen as another PyChecker, since nearly all tests you can do with PyChecker can also be done with Pylint, but Pylint offers some more features, like checking line-code's length, checking if variable names are well-formed according to your coding standard, or checking if declared interfaces are truly implemented.
