If I have a Python file open, is it possible to create a shortcut that will save the file and then run the file with IDLE? Currently I have the Python plugin and I have it set to run the open script when I press F5, with the output displayed in the console at the bottom of the N++ window, but since it uses Python 2.7, it doesn't always work as expected.
So I'd either like to be able to update this to 3.0, or create a shortcut to run the open file in IDLE.
You can do this with the NPP_EXEC plugin.
After installing the plugin, press F6 and create a script that looks like this:
<put full path to IDLE here> "$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)"
Once you have this working, save the script. To assign this to a key, restart Notepad++ and go to
Shortcut Mapper > Plugins, locate your script, and then assign a key.
