PyFlakes Script for BBEdit 10
#!/usr/bin/env python2.6
A quick script to install into your `Application Support/BBEdit/Scripts` folder.
This runs PyFlakes (requires PyFlakes to be installed at `/usr/local/bin` -
try ``/usr/bin/easy_install-2.6 pyflakes==0.4.0``) and reformats the results
so that they show up in BBEdit's search results / error / warnings window. Then
the errors can be stepped through one at a time.
I've bound this to control-shift-V. You must save your Python file first before
running the check.
from __future__ import print_function
import os
import re
import sys
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE
if os.environ['BB_DOC_LANGUAGE'].lower() != 'python':
# Bail out quietly if language isn't Python
doc_file = os.environ['BB_DOC_PATH']
pyflakes = "/usr/local/bin/pyflakes"
stdout, stderr = Popen([pyflakes, doc_file], stdout=PIPE, stderr=PIPE).communicate()
output = stdout if stdout else stderr
if not output:
line_format = re.compile('(?P<path>[^:]+):(?P<line>\d+):\s(?P<message>.*$)')
for line in output.splitlines():
m = line_format.match(line)
if not m:
groups = m.groupdict()
print(''' File "{path}", line {line}'''.format(**groups), file=sys.stderr)
print(groups['message'], file=sys.stderr)
print('^', file=sys.stderr)

This should also work with the 'flake8' script. Just change the path to 'pyflakes' to point to a 'flake8' script to get PEP 8 and PyFlakes checking in one.

Did you intend to license this in any way? I combined some of this code with another, similar gist (neither does quite what I want out of the box), and made some modifications on top of that, and I can't see any way to legally distribute the result, as it stands.

Updated for python3 / BBedit 12:

I couldn't figure out what the caret line

print('^', file=sys.stderr)

was supposed to do, so I removed it.
