rope -- the world's most advanced open source Python refactoring library
Rope is the world's most advanced open source Python refactoring library (yes, I totally stole that tagline from Postgres).
Most Python syntax from Python 2.7 up to Python 3.10 is supported. Please file bugs and contribute patches if you encounter gaps.
From version 1.0.0 onwards, rope will no longer support running on Python 2. If you need Python 2 support, then check out the python2 branch or the 0.x.x releases.

Why use Rope?
- Rope aims to provide powerful and safe refactoring
- Rope is light on dependency, Rope only depends on Python itself
- Unlike PyRight or PyLance, Rope does not depend on Node.js
- Unlike PyLance or PyCharm, Rope is open source.
- Unlike PyRight and PyLance, Rope is written in Python itself, so if you experience problems, you would be able to debug and hack it yourself in a language that you are already familiar with
- In comparison to Jedi, Rope is focused on refactoring. While Jedi provides some basic refactoring capabilities, Rope supports many more advanced refactoring operations and options that Jedi does not.
