you could try installing it.

pip install Pylint

but if it doesn't work, then it's probably not available in repl.it

Repl.it posted on a new feature (https://blog.replit.com/pylint) showing lint hints but i don't know how to activate this. Does anyone know ?

I've contacted the customer support about this issue. Unfortunately, they told me that this feature is outdated and it does not exist anymore. It got replaced by pyflakes.

I disagree with the given answer on this question.

See following sample code (created within repl)

While clicking on autoformat does add the missing empty lines, i can't see any pylint messages as advertised.

Is it a paidplan feature?

EDIT: for clarification: This is NOT about the usage of pylint from the commandline. I am explicitly talking about features of the pylint ingetragion within the replit IDE GUI as shown in the corresponding blog post.

If you go to the shell, and try to install pylint there, it says pylint is already installed
