DreamPie is a Python shell which is designed to be reliable and fun.
DreamPie can use just about any Python interpreter (Jython, IronPython, PyPy).
Note, this shell hasn’t seen any releases since 2012.
- New concept for an interactive shell: the window is divided into the history box, which lets you view previous commands and their output, and the code box, where you write your code. This allows you to edit any amount of code, just like in your favorite editor, and execute it when it’s ready. You can also copy code from anywhere, edit it and run it instantly.
- The Copy code only command will copy the code you want to keep, so you can save it in a file. The code is already formatted nicely with a four-space indentation.
- Automatic completion of attributes and file names.
- Automatically displays function arguments and documentation.
- Keeps your recent results in the result history, for later use.
- Can automatically fold long outputs, so you can concentrate on what’s important.
- Save the history of the session as an HTML file, for future reference. You can then load the history file into DreamPie, and quickly redo previous commands.
- Automatically adds parentheses and optionally quotes when you press space after functions and methods. For example, type execfile fn and get execfile(“fn”).
- Supports interactive plotting with matplotlib.
- Xupport for Python 2.5, Python 2.6, Python 3.1, Jython 2.5, IronPython 2.6, and PyPy.
- Extremely fast and responsive.
