I'm new to Jython and Python. I was surprised not to find in
Jython some integrated graphical editor (like IDLE for Python).

If anyone will want to give it a try I will appreciate receiving
comments,bugs and wishes.

I asked this question few weeks ago. Please see the following response from nr

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.

Even in such an early state of development, this is a very cool project
you're working on.
I don't suppose you'd care to contribute a copy to Useless Python, would ya?
