PyStudio plugin (Python IDE) released

Postby mcarans » Sun May 22, 2011 5:54 pm


Would like to announce the release of a new plugin "PyStudio" for
Editra that is targeted at Python developers.

In its initial release this plugin integrates the following extended
Python development features into Editra.

* Fully integrated Python Debugger - Utilizing same rpdb2 backend as
WinPdb with an all new fully integrated UI.
* Code Analysis - Provides fully integrated code analysis (lint
checking). (Currently supported backend is pylint).
* Python Module locator - search and find python modules on your
system - right click on import statements to open module.
* Syntax error checking on file save
* and more to come

[docs|screenshots] -

This plugin is compatible with Editra 0.6.48 and later.

Existing Python features already in Editra:
* Syntax Highlighting
* Autocompletion and calltips
* Auto-commenting
* launch scripts from within the program (bundled Launch plugin)
* Integrated Python shell (bundled PyShell plugin)

Where to get it:

*) Builtin PluginManager: Tools->PluginManager->Download
*) Manual download:

I really like the PyStudio plugin! Good job so far. Now Editra is getting usable, imho. But there are still some rough edges. I'd really like to see more improvements and hope that someday in the future I can abandon Eclipse with PyDev plugin in favor of Editra (which looks very native on Mac OS X btw, and I like that ;-)).

Improvements I want to see:
* Refactoring support like Eclipse has it: rename all occurances of a variable/class/method name in all project files.
* Adjustable toolbar like Firefox or other programs have it: let me change icon size + text, let me put Run/Debug buttons on the toolbar, or some other useful stuff, like autoformat etc ...
* Add crucial plugins to default install and integrate them better. must-have plugins are: codebrowser, filebrowser, projects and maybe pyshell
* Improve gui layout (at least in mac os): some buttons/comboboxes are not correctly vertically centered. If a panel get's to small, widgets overlay each other, etc ... needs some bug squashing ;-)

So that's enough for the moment ;-)
Keep on guys, I really see a viable alternative to Pydev coming up here ;-)

It is certainly my hope that this plugin can become a viable alternative to PyDev as I really can't stand the Eclipse GUI. This is what prompted me to start this plugin in the first place.

Thanks for your ideas. We welcome them and we also welcome any programmers who want to contribute to the plugin.
