the Python IDE for scientific computing

Project description

Pyzo is a cross-platform Python IDE focused on interactivity and introspection, which makes it very suitable for scientific computing. Its practical design is aimed at simplicity and efficiency.

Pyzo is written in Python 3 and Qt. Binaries are available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. For questions, there is a discussion group.

Two components + tools

Pyzo consists of two main components, the editor and the shell, and uses a set of pluggable tools to help the programmer in various ways. Some example tools are source structure, project manager, interactive help, and workspace.

Some key features

  • Powerful introspection (autocompletion, calltips, interactive help)
  • Allows various ways to run code interactively or to run a file as a script.
  • The shells runs in a subprocess and can therefore be interrupted or killed.
  • Multiple shells can be used at the same time, and can be of different Python versions (from v2.4 to 3.x, including pypy)
  • Support for using several GUI toolkits interactively: PySide, PyQt4, wx, fltk, GTK, Tk.
  • Run IPython shell or native shell.
  • Full Unicode support in both editor and shell.
  • Various handy tools, plus the ability to make your own.
  • Matlab-style cell notation to mark code sections (by starting a line with ‘##’).
