Geany Python Navigation plugin
This is a plugin for Geany to make it easier to navigate a Python codebase.
Currently, its only feature is "jump to Python module". It tries to open the source file corresponding to a given Python module (dotted path).
- Install Geany 1.27+.
- Install GeanyPy.
On Debian/Ubuntu, install
geany-plugin-pyas well as
pynav.pyon your Geany plugin path, e.g. in
- Open Geany's plugin manager (Tools → Plugin Manager) and enable GeanyPy and Python Navigation.
- Click Keybindings to set your preferred key for "Jump to Python module". (This is optional: you can also invoke it from the Tools menu.)
When you press the chosen keybinding (or invoke Tools → Jump to Python module), the plugin first tries to figure out which Python module name (dotted path) you wish to look up:
- if there is some selected text in the current document, then it is used;
- otherwise, if the cursor is on a line beginning with

- otherwise, you are prompted to enter the dotted path manually.
Then the plugin tries to find the file corresponding to that module name.
For example, if the dotted path is
foo.bar, the plugin looks for
foo/bar/__init__.py in a few places around the current
You can also configure the search path on a per-project basis. To do so,
open your Geany project file (the one whose name ends in
and add a section like this:
then restart Geany (reopen the project).
The format is similar to that for
