Currently that's not possible... the only hovers available are over the markers -- so, it has to be done... you can add it as a feature request, or if you do something, please send a patch ;-)

Hi all,

Is there any way to provide custom text hovers for the PyDev editor
in Eclipse? I was thinking something similar to Java editor's
org.eclipse.jdt.ui.javaEditorTextHovers extension point.

Is there anything similar for the PyDev editor?

Thanks in advance,
