iPython (http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/) is probably the most sophisticated Python shell available, but has a console interface. The new version is supposedly easily embeddable. One can find wxWindows version on their site.
A shell will be developed based on Qt, QScintilla and the C API using iPython in the coming months.
Source and Windows Binaries for the Qt Based Simple Python Shell with Scintilla has been released.
- Syntax highlighting
- Light weight
- Simple Code completion
- Simple Interface
This version works with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows including Vista.
The project has recently been approved and the files will be provided very soon. This includes a fully working Python Shell using Qt and Scintilla.
