PyScripter - Python IDE

  •        0

PyScripter originally started as a lightweight IDE designed to to serve the purpose of providing a strong scripting solution for Delphi applications, complementing the excellent Python for Delphi (P4D) components. However, and with the encouragement of the P4D creator Morgan Martinez and a few early users, it has now evolved into a full-featured stand- alone Python IDE. It is built in Delphi using P4D and the SynEdit component but is extensible using Python scripts. Being built in a compiled language is rather snappier than some of the other IDEs and provides an extensive blend of features that make it a productive Python development environment.
