Pyzo - The Interactive editor for scientific Python

Main website:


Pyzo is a cross-platform Python IDE focused on interactivity and introspection, which makes it very suitable for scientific computing. Its practical design is aimed at simplicity and efficiency.

It consists of two main components, the editor and the shell, and uses a set of pluggable tools to help the programmer in various ways. Some example tools are source structure, project manager, interactive help, workspace ...

Pyzo is written in (pure) Python 3 and uses the Qt GUI toolkit. Binaries are provided for all major operating system. After installing Pyzo, it can be used to execute code on any Python version available on your system (Python 2.4 - 3.x, including Pypy).


Pyzo runs on Python3 and needs PySide/PySide2/PyQt4/PyQt5. On a modern OS these should be easy to obtain. One can then install Pyzo with python3 -m pip install pyzo

We also provide binaries for Windows, Linux and OS X.


Pyzo is free and open source. BSD licensed.
