Hi! I've searching for python IDE's and I've not found anything like NetBeans for java. I downloaded Dr Python but was too simple, I tried to install PyDev on Eclipse but I got some errors. I saw some screenshots about SPE and I said whoa! that seems good, but I couldn't install it because of the SVN stuff(SPE doesn't have a msi or something similar).

So I'm looking for a IDE well-decorated (Eclipse), which can draw GUI's (NetBeans) and easy to install (a setup.exe, msi...). I work on a windows XP.


Please Help!!!, I prefer python than java, but sometimes I have to work in java because of the commodity of the IDE.

Thank you very much!!!

There is Boa Constructor (similar to Delphi) that uses wxPython as the GUI toolkit (you need wxPython isstalled first), free download from:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/boa-constructor/boa-constructor-0.4.4.win32.exe

There is also wxGlade, just frame builder/designer, also using wxPython:
http://wxglade.sourceforge.net/

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

The frame builder wxGlade comes with Stani's Python Editor (SPE). You can still get a free download of SPE 0.8.3c, the Python IDE for Movable Python at:
http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/839343
Downloads as spe-0.8.3c.zip, and should work with Python 2.3 - 2.5. Simply extract the '_spe' directory into your Python 'lib' folder. You can then run 'spe.pyw' from there. Again, you need the wxPython GUI toolkit installed first for SPE to work!

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Hi! I'm trying Boa and I get the "'module' object has not attribute 'NotebookSizer'" error, when I run Boa.pyw, it appears me that message and the initializer stops. Do you know how I could solve it?

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Which version of wxPython do you have installed?
I am having the same problem on my newest computer.

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Yes. wxPython2.8-win32-unicode-2.8.4.0-py25, and python 2.5

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

By the way, I've installed SPE (thanks for the link and the explanation), but I'm wondering if it has the "Ctrl + Space" funtion of Eclipse and Netbeans, which if you do for example:

objectFoo.


it appears to you a list of the methods of that object and a brief description of them. I've tried in spe something like

from Tkinter import *

root = Tk()

root. #waiting here for a list of methods...but nothing appears

Have I to turn on something on SPE to get the marvelous Ctrl + Space funcion?

Thanks!

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

You can type in the SPE Python shell
help('Tkinter')

from Tkinter import *

root = Tk()

root.

Actually an IDE called PyScripter has this feature. The moment you type the dot a dropdown list of possible choices appears.

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Sorry, I have not used Boa Constructor for a while. It seems like they have had major recent upgrade at:
http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?group_id=1909&use_mirror=osdn&filename=boa-constructor-0.6.1.bin.setup.exe&74856058

That one installs well and works with Python25 and wxPython28, even on a Vista machine. I am testing it out now.

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

15 minutes into testing the new Boa Constructor (boa-constructor-0.6.1.bin.setup.exe), very impressed with it.

It does have ctrl/space for code completion choices!

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Thanks Henri,

I just downloaded the latest version too! Looks like a nice improvement! I think I am going to write a short example how to use Boa in the "Starting Python" sticky.

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

I've downloaded it too. It sounds nice.

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Hi! Could someone make a little tutorial for dummies about how to create a GUI with wxGlade in SPE?, because I've been tying to do it like for example Netbeans, but I can't put the widgets where I want, I don't see my application as I'm drawing it...kind of a mess.

Thank you!

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

To get Eclipse and Pydev work on XP you need to install Mylyn too. Eclipse rules :)

You actually check here.

@Vegaseat, thanks for the quick thread...

Re: Looking for a Python IDE like NetBeans 80 80

Well, that link is to the Boa Constructor quick and dirty tutorial. I have played with wxGlade and found it to be a rather strange bird. Maybe I will revisit it.
