Editra – Add the plugins and it’s a very flexible IDE (with syntax highlighting for Python)

You can find Editra at http://editra.org.

The current version is 7.12 and it requires wxPython 2.8 to run. On my system, Editra is setup with Python 2.6 but I can run any version of Python through it (2.4, 2.6, 3.1, and even Panda 3d-Python 2.6). Where Editra really excels is by adding the optional plug-ins. Once installed, these transform Editra into a serious IDE for Python projects or simple code dissections.

Available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows

The project documentation explains everything from installation and configuration to adding the plugins, and by checking http://editra.org/supported_file_types you will see a list of other languages that Editra can be used to edit.

If your looking for a streamlined, functional, and flexible Python IDE, Editra is definitely worth a look.

      Thanks, Hellhound, are you using python for programming/game code or for Blender scripting?

        Currently learning python for game coding and hoping to move onto scripting for Blender once I have a decent foundation in it.

        Have you had a chance to look at the free ebooks by Al Sweigart at
        the first one covers text based games the second graphics based games?

        or another free ebook to check out is
        “Introduction to Computer Science Using Python and Pygame” by Paul Vincent Craven
        it covers Python, Pygame, and Blender(scripting)

        I actually bought the paperback copy of Al Sweigart’s first book on Amazon a couple months ago. Made me laugh a couple times
        when he was explaining how computers will do whatever you tell them to do. The second book however I’ve never heard of before but I will definitely take a look. Thanks. 🙂
