a python refactoring library...

Project description


Rope is a python refactoring library.

New Features

  • added python_files project config
  • python_path project config should be searched before sys.path
  • added AutoImport.clear_cache()
  • added codeassist.starting_expression()
  • inferring the type of except variables
  • refactorings and code-assists are considerably faster
  • better import insertion location
  • better syntax errors
  • fixed preventing maximum recursion for mutual star imports
  • re-added deprecated NoProject.close() to make ropeide work
  • better handling of parameters that are assigned
  • fixed updating project file cache
  • better global function extraction
  • importing version control modules lazily


The python_files project config can be used to tell rope which files in the project are python modules. By default it is ['*.py']. If you have scripts in your project it can be useful; for instance add:

``prefs['python_files'] = ['*.py', ``*.pyw``, ``scripts/*``]``

to your .ropeproject/
