    Hi,

    I use Rgedit extensively for R programming as it's very straightforward and neat to use. Is there a python equivalent that could do exactly the same based in gedit? At the moment, there are some clunky alternative approaches that i use, but if i could send text from gedit in the same way for Python  that i can do for R it would be far easier than having to learn different editors etc,
    Thanks

    Hi,

    actually, the new version that I'm working on (and hopefully finish during this holiday season :) ) allows users to define other interactive console programs such as octave (and python. but I did not test that yet).

    Best,
    Dan

    Hi Robin,

    did you try 0.8 with a Python profile?

    Hi Dan,

    Apologies for the lengthy delay in replying. I was initially having various issues with my server/ubuntu versions and until these were finalized and stable i was reluctant to try and add in the updates of Rgedit to run Python. Going back to this, i have tried the latest Rgedit version to run with the Python profile and as far as i can tell so far it works exactly as hoped. Many thanks for the comments and the Rgedit package itself, as it really is such a neat way to edit and run code in a simple way,

    Thanks again,
    Robin
