Description lhonda 2007-12-08 00:20:42 UTC
This is a feature request to implement Python support in Netbeans. Project management, syntax highlighting, code
completion are welcome features to this request.

Consider adding Jython support as well as Django support please.  Or a combination of both of them:

I would use Netbeans more if it had Python integrated, especially if it also allowed UML to Python, and Python code 
Comment 3 urlwolf 2008-02-13 12:57:11 UTC
I'd love python/Django support.
The market is ripe, there's no good IDE out there :)
Comment 4 Nathan Fiedler 2008-02-13 18:02:17 UTC
Well, Komodo Edit is okay, but not nearly as good as NetBeans. :)

BTW, there's something that is halfway to what we need: Jpydbg ( -- it has somewhat
decent editor support and provides debugging support for both Python and Jython. That would make a fine base for adding
real Python support to NetBeans. Obviously some of the missing bits would need to be added (e.g. toggle-comment), and
the toolbar would need to be cleaned up. The big missing piece is project support (Django in particular). Anything
halfway as good as the NB support for Ruby on Rails would be awesome.

Python support is currently developed at, but I don't think it will be ready for 6.5
Comment 6 jogshy 2008-10-17 01:41:44 UTC
Yes pls, add python support ( syntax highlight, project management, code completetion AND debug, including embedded one
in possible )
Comment 7 Nathan Fiedler 2009-01-07 18:20:01 UTC
Looks like the new Python support in NetBeans 6.5 is working pretty well. Maybe this issue can be closed?
