Hi all,

I would like to share with you this little open-source project of mine, 

I've just started it a few days ago and I worked on it only a couple of 
hours at home this week and saturday morning... so do not expect a 
revolution here.
But I thought that some of you might be interested in contributing or 
simply testing it.

Here is an extract from the Google Code website:

PyQtShell is intended to be an extension to PyQt4 (module PyQt4.QtShell) 
providing a console application (see screenshots below) based on 
independent widgets which interact with each other:
    - QShell, a Python shell with useful options (like a '-os' switch 
for importing os and os.path as osp, a '-pylab' switch for importing 
matplotlib in interactive mode, ...) and advanced features like code 
completion (requires QScintilla, i.e. module PyQt4.Qsci)
    - CurrentDirChanger: shows the current directory and allows to change it
Not implemented :
    - GlobalsExplorer: shows globals() list with some properties for 
each global (e.g. value for int or float, min and max values for arrays, 
...) and allows to open an appropriate GUI editor
    - and other widgets: FileExplorer, CodeEditor, ...
