Hi cody, thanks for the (quick!) response.
1) I followed recommendation on http://editra.org/setup_python_ide
If your a Python developer, I highly suggest installing Editra from source using the supplied setup.py script as opposed to installing the binary distributions.
Unless I'm mistaken, I think installing from binaries would not allow me to get as much from Editra when it comes to the third-party modules (autocomplete features and so on).
Yes, that means "do not" build and exe as that will end up with the same thing as you download from this site. When you build a py2exe executable it creates a self contained python environment that Editra will run in and the autocomp will only have access to provide completions for the libraries that are inside that executable not any other 3rd party libs you may have on your system.
I think there is a few hoops you need to jump through to create a desktop link to start a source installed version of Editra on windows right now (which I hope to resolve sometime soon), but I don't use windows very often so I am not a 100% sure at the moment of that. Editra is included with wxPython and there are some conflicts with the launcher script it installs and the one that my setup.py install, so if you do a
- Code: Select all
python setup.py install
I think you will need to go to the C:\\PythonXX\Scripts directory and modify the editra.bat file to point at the new installation you just did and no the wxpython installed one. You may also need to remove the 'Editra.py[w]' scripts from that directory as well. Then you should be able to create a link to the bat file and launch it just like an executable.
3) C:\Documents and Settings\me\Downloads\Editra-0.4.88\src\syntax\._issuelist.py (It does exist, unless WinZip created it!)
I will check the tarballs later but that file should not exist, so it may be either a temp file made by winzip or by python distools when I bundled the tarball.
