PTK

PTK

PythonToolkit (PTK) is an open source interactive environment for Python. It was designed to provide a Python based environment similiar to Matlab for scientists and engineers. However, this IDE has a wider appeal as it can also be uased as a general purpose interactive Python environment.

PTK is built around a Tool plugin system (with core tools providing a console window and simple python source editor, path management, namespace browser and more).
