Prelude Python

Python Mode

Emacs comes with Python programming support through the built-in Python-mode. Whenever you are editing Python code run C-h m to look at the Python mode key bindings. Alternatively look at the menu bar entries under Python. To toggle the menu bar press F12.

Syntax checking

Prelude ships with Flycheck, an on the fly syntax checker. Flycheck has support for two Python syntax checkers, Pylint and Flake8. In order to have Flycheck support on the fly syntax checking for Python you need to have either of these installed and accessible to Emacs. In order to manually choose a checker run C-c ! s.
