Install/Configure PyLint For Python 3.6?




I make heavy use of python 3.6 features in my code. As a result, anything not supported by 3.5.3 gets flagged by pylint and marked as an error in the IDE. Can anyone point me in the direction of information on how to either install pylint for 3.6 or configure the existing pylint to use 3.6?

What I have tried so far:

  • sudo pip3 install pylint (this gave me the exception errors described at
  • search the web for answers (someone suggested the python version used by pylint might be hard-wired to whichever one installs pylint; I would find that odd)
  • searching the C9 community forums (nothing clear cut as far as exactly what I should do presented itself)

Thanks in advance.
