There is no such plug-in currently available, as far as I know. It is 
something that is in our longer-term plans, but not something we would 
manage to add anytime soon, I think.

It may be possible to write one using the scripting API that Wing IDE 
provides. This is documented at http://wingware.com/doc/scripting and 
there are examples in the “scripting” directory in your Wing IDE 
installation. There are also user-contributed scripts in the wiki at 

Since you would need to build some kind of a tool panel, and the API 
does not include support for that, you would probably want the source 
code for Wing IDE, which you can get under an NDA. The file 
scripts/pylintpanel.py was also originally written by a user, and it 
includes the definition of the panel.

You may also want to take a look and see if you can find a standalone 
tool, that you could use in tandem with Wing IDE, rather than going to 
the effort of writing a tool.
