Q-idle

Q-idle is a Qt version of the shell part of the Idle IDE for Python. It runs code in a different process and thus allows easier interruption of the shell (and long running code does not freeze the interface).

Features

  • syntax hilighting
  • code completion, dict key & filename completion
  • doc and function signature tooltips
  • reload file on change (just open a file or drag and drop it onto the shell window)
  • pretty printing of objects (extensible via plugins) -- pylab.figure, QtGui.QImage, PIL.Image (images, yay :-))

Planned Features

  • multiple tabs
  • editor
  • session saving, history saving
  • inspection tools
  • debugger
