[IPython-user] Pydee <-> Qt frontend for IPython
Mon Apr 20 16:00:05 CDT 2009
Three months ago, I made an announcement (on SciPy and PyQt4 mailing
lists regarding a little open-source project of mine, PyQtShell -- that
is a module providing embeddable console widgets for your PyQt
applications (interactive Python shell, workspace, working directory
browser, editor, ...) as well as "Pydee", a PYthon Development
EnvironmEnt based on these widgets (which could become an interesting
alternative to IDLE for example).
Pydee features have been greatly enhanced these last weeks -- e.g.
matplotlib integration (i.e. matplotlib figures can be docked inside
Pydee which is quite convenient).
Note: As some of you may have noticed, Pydee is intended to be a
mini-MATLAB environment -- that being said, it still at an early stage
Other screenshots and informations:
And last but not least, and that's why I'm posting on this list, the
next major release of PyQtShell (and Pydee) will be based on IPython
(instead of code.Interpreter). Embedding IPython in PyQtShell will take
time... and two steps:
* phase #1: as you probably already know, Gaël Varoquaux wrote a Wx
front end for IPython ("wx_frontend.py"), I'm currently porting it to
PyQt4 and it's almost finished (http://source.pythonxy.com/qt_frontend.png)
* phase #2: merge this code ("qt_frontend.py") to PyQtShell's code
Currently phase #1 is started and related code is expected to be mature
at the end of April. Phase #2 will follow and hopefully PyQtShell 0.4.0
will be released before the end of May.
