I haven't used Python and I know nothing about IDLE. Still, I use Jext
(www.jext.org) for jython, and found it very useable.
Jython is embedded as Jext's native script interpreter, so it's very easy to
type in scripts and to run them immediately. Unfortunately, no
step-debugging etc, *and* this version of the editor seems to have a habit
of sometimes silently discarding jython error messages.

Since my last response to this subject I've had enough unfortunate
experiences with the editor I was using to prompt me to cast about for other
I revisited jedit (www.jedit.org) and have found its editing and jython
integration capabilities delightfully better than I imagined on my first
take a month or so ago.
As an editor jedit offers the following:
--fast, responsive display
--lots of configurable keyboard shortcuts
--2-stage file saving (something I now consider *very* desirable)
As a jython editor jedit offers the following:
--indentation-based code folding
Its jython plugin (JythonInterpreter) offers the following:
--acts as a standalone, command-history-aware jython console, and as stdout
for the current script
--allows running script from buffer to buffer (see jedit buffers)
--allows easy editing of pythonpath; you can tell it where to look for your
--allows easy 'repointing' of jython to use; you may use existing jython
--may be docked into jedit main window; then it looks like an intrinsic part
--since it's not part of the core editor, jedit remains responsive even when
the jython plugin is in a long compute loop
The reason my initial jedit experience wasn't very positive was because I
opted to install every jedit plugin available...and that caused a noticeable
load lag. That, and I hadn't explored its jython plugin well enough.
Hope this helps.
