Since yesterday i play around with a new python editor (IDE):
So far this gpl3-licensed, Qt-powered, free IDE specifically written for python has made a very good impresson on me:
- There is code completion and tooltips
- There is an overview window to find classes and methods
- There are no useless “compile” or “built” commands like in multi-language IDE’s (Eclipse)
- There seem to be lots of plugins at the project hompeage (git, bazaar, code paste etc.)
- There is a greeting screen with working, in-build irc client. Very cute!
- There is support for ctrl+mousewheel to zoom in and out
- I found the option to switch from python2 to python3 (or any custom python version): Edit -> Preferences -> General -> Execution
- Ninja-IDE does not confuses Spaces with Tabs
The only irritating things that i have found so far are the black, depressing background (there is a color preference menu but i was too lazy to play around with it) and that i have to click on a rectangular “run file” icon instead of the green triangle icon (“run project”).
