PyFlakes, Wingware, And PEP8

So, as Python developers, we all know about PEP8, right? But how easy is it to follow that standard? If you're like me, having a tool to help you check it is a good thing. Also, if you're like me, you use Wingware.

The tool you've been looking for has arrived, and it's called PyFlakesPanel.

This allows you to add a PyFlakes panel to your tool panels. From there, you can run pyflakes on any open file or package. I like it, quite a bit. It's still in an early form, and there's still room to improve, but it makes for a great start.

Once I manage to get through this deployment that we've been doing all week (and part of next week) at work, I'll see about contributing to it to make it everything I want it to be (assuming the author doesn't beat me to it!).

Check it out. I think you're going to like what you see.
