Package iep IEP (pronounced as 'eep') 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. IEP is written in Python 3 and Qt. Binaries are available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. For questions, there is a discussion group. Two components + tools ---------------------- IEP 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, and workspace. Some key features ----------------- * Powerful *introspection* (autocompletion, calltips, interactive help) * Allows various ways to *run code interactively* or to run a file as a script. * The shells runs in a *subprocess* and can therefore be interrupted or killed. * *Multiple shells* can be used at the same time, and can be of different Python versions (from v2.4 to 3.x, including pypy) * Support for using several *GUI toolkits* interactively: PySide, PyQt4, wx, fltk, GTK, Tk. * Run IPython shell or native shell. * *Full Unicode support* in both editor and shell. * Various handy *tools*, plus the ability to make your own. * Matlab-style *cell notation* to mark code sections (by starting a line with '##'). * Highly customizable.
