zc.buildout recipe that creates a rope project config with python_path pointing to some eggs and their dependencies

Project description

Detailed Documentation


Rope is a great tool for python development.

It is a refactoring library with the marvelous side effect of letting you navigate throughout code.

You can use it with either emacs of vim

This recipe

This zc.buildout recipe makes a .ropeproject folder with search paths pointing to the eggs of your choice… and their transitive dependencies!


  1. Make rope both faster and more precise. [1]

    The reason is that search paths are set explicitly, so rope does’t have to guess through directory hierarchies.

  2. A very good complement to the omelette recipe. Actually, code navigation is way easier that grepping. Give it a try.


In your buildout.cfg include the recipe, with the eggs property set to one or more eggs:

parts = ... ropeproject

recipe = collective.recipe.ropeproject
eggs = ${anything_you_want}
