I am new to Atom and have been setting it up to be my perfect Python IDE. Ideally, that will include a great linter, but I’ve been frustrated by my inability to have any of the four I’ve tried to install work. Finally, late last night I figured out that the problem lies with my failing to put the path to the underlying Python linter in my config. cson file.
Since I have absolutely no experience with Coffeescript I come seeking advice. I find the recommended entry in the configuration file is:
'linter-python-pep8': 'pep8DirToExecutable': '/usr/local/bin/' 'ignoreErrorCodes': 'E501, W292'
On the assumption that this pathname is for an OS other than Windows I come up with this:
'linter-python-pep8': 'pep8DirToExecutable': 'c:\users\myusername\...' 'ignoreErrorCodes': 'E501, W292'
Unfortunately, when filling in the entire pathname in place of the ellipsis the line extends beyond 80 characters. The best answer I can find without getting deeper into Coffeescript than I with is this:
'linter-python-pep8': 'pep8DirToExecutable': 'c:\users\myusername\appdata\' + 'local\programs\python\python37\' + 'lib\site-packages' 'ignoreErrorCodes': 'E501, W292'
I have tried this but when that is in the configuration file Atom refuses to open and I’ve had to go in with another editor and remove it.
Please Help! Thanks in Advance
