I'm still working steadily away at a terminal frontend with fancy
stuff like input coloring, auto-help, auto-complete, etc. - I was
calling it 'curses-based' earlier, but now that its urwid-based,
it isn't based on the curses library... but its the same idea. If
you want to look at my progress, please use 'git clone
git://github.com/wackywendell/ipyurwid.git', and follow the
directions in the README.
Anyways, although there is plenty still to do with the widgets,
it's come far enough for me to start worrying about integrating
into ipython. I haven't touched that as I've been waiting for the
dust to settle around pyzmq, but... I think its time.
What I'm looking for ideally is a ipython-frontend class I can use
that lets me send and receive input/output, and also has methods
for running help on an object, source lookup, completion
possibilities for a word, etc. I noticed the old frontend classes
are gone; what are the plans to replace them? I'd be happy to be
involved with that, too, if that would be helpful - but I don't
want to step on anyone's toes, and also there are, I'm sure, a lot
of different things that are wanted out of that... what's the
status on that? How could I be helpful there?
Let me know...
P.S. I sent this yesterday, but I didn't even receive it from the
list, so I'm sending it again. I apologize to anyone who receives
