A work-in-progress Sugar for the Espresso text-editor for development with Python.

If you are looking for the source for the Python.sugar project, check out the source repository.

How to Use

Install any dependencies as outlined below. The instructions to install them should be available by following the links.

Once the dependencies are installed, you have a couple of easy options to install this sugar:

Download the source in .zip or .tgz format using the download button or clone this project to your computer using git:

git clone git:// "Python.sugar"

With Espresso versions 1.0.1 and later, you should be able to just double-click the file and it will install to Espresso. If that doesn't work, then:

Move or link it to the Espresso sugars folder (note you may need to create the folder first):

mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Espresso/Sugars/

mv Python.sugar ~/Library/Application\ Support/Espresso/Sugars/
-- or --
ln -s Python.sugar ~/Library/Application\ Support/Espresso/Sugars/


More Information

This sugar uses the naming conventions as outlined by elliottcable in his Espresso Sugar Standard. Due to the fact that this standard is not set in stone and being followed by every sugar developer yet, certain themes/foams haven't been created to work with this naming convention. Therefore they may not highlight the syntax quite as nicely as one would like.

There are a few themes/foams that do work with the Espresso Sugar Standard, however.

Because of the unpredictable nature of Espresso sugars and themes/foams, this sugar may change often, so it is worth watching.
