[IPython-dev] pyreadline refactor progess
Tue Jul 1 15:26:13 CDT 2008
the refactoring of pyreadline is progressing nicely. I have now moved
all stuff that depends on the console out of the emacs mode. The vi mode
still uses some console stuff and should not be used in non-console mode.
There is a very simplistic tk_gui.py example in the examples directory.
The translation of tk key events to the event type used in pyreadline is
not complete. Dead keys, keys using alt gr, as well as many
non-alphanumeric keys are not translated. The example also has a very
simple python prompt.
There also needs to be work on getting the cursor visible.
The code is available, using bzr, from:
If you want to try it out note that an install will install a
readline.py which may interfere with your regular readline.
