Dynamically set Python2/3 version in Syntastic

Determining Python 2/3 Version in VIM


I am a big fan of the syntastic package. In python, it is useful for viewing both Pyflakes and Bandit errors. However, this only works if syntastic knows what python interpreter to use. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have upgraded all of their software to python3. For reasons out of my control, I end up spending most of my time writing python2 code. This means that the times when I finally get to write python3, all of my syntax checking is broken. How cool would it be to have VIM determine what version of python to use automatically? So, begins my grand experiment...


For this to work, I will be using a virtualenv for python2 and one for python3. It's not absolutely necessary to use virtualenvs but I definitely recommend it. Setting up virtualenvs is out of the scope of this gist but make sure that each virtualenv

"""Written on iPhone with the Pythonista 3 app
As a joke for the PyBites guys, I don't see why it wouldn't work anywhere else though. They always
start off their newsletter annoucements with:
from @PyBites import newsletter
So I turned it into actual code that pulls their feed and opens their latest newsletter in a browser :)

Preventing saving for various errors in VIM

Preventing saving for various errors in VIM (Buffer Pre-write Hook Part 2)


This is a continuation of my buffer pre-write hook series. Check out the previous gist to follow the progression.

Have you ever tried running a file only to be stopped by "<<<<<<<"?

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to automatically run your code through pyflakes before actually saving it? Maybe even raise an error for showstopping bugs in your code?
