IDLE Extensions for Python
  1 Screenshot
Python's IDLE was designed in order to provide an environment with an elegant minimalism that allows you to write Python code.

It is accessible to those beginning programming in addition to being useful to advanced programmers.

IdleX provides some additional functionality to IDLE and transforms it into a more useful tool for academic research and development as well as exploratory programming.

Main features:

  • Terminal-like behavior for Shell. Cursor stays in prompt and up/down arrow keys navigate the command history.

  • Interactive GUI development for Tkinter, GTK, Qt, Qt4, PySide, wxPython
  • Tabbed editor windows with drag'n'drop reordering.

  • Persistent history of Shell commands across sessions.
  • Integrated support.
  • Improved code navigation with Code Browser.
