What is PyDev?
PyDev is an open-source Python IDE on top of Eclipse for Python, Jython and
It comes with goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax
analysis, code analysis, refactor, debug, interactive console, etc.

What is LiClipse?
LiClipse is a PyDev standalone with goodies such as support for Multiple
cursors, theming and a number of other languages such as Django Templates,
It's also a commercial counterpart which helps supporting the development
Details on LiClipse: http://brainwy.github.io/liclipse/
* **Important**: PyDev requires Eclipse 3.8 or 4.3 onwards and Java 7! For
older versions, keep using PyDev 2.x (use LiClipse:
http://brainwy.github.io/liclipse for a PyDev standalone with all

* Auto code-completion on all letter chars is enabled by default.
* Merged debugger code with the PyCharm fork.
* Fix the wrong signature of stackless.get_schedule_callback.
* Breakpoints work in Django templates (requires the LiClipse:

* Gevent debugging (must be enabled in the debugger preferences page).
* Faster debugging when dealing with huge dicts/sets/lists/tuples.
* QThreads can be debugged (for remote debugging, 'import pydevd' must

PyDev - Python Development Environment for Eclipse
eGenix PyRun - One file Python Runtime
An easy-to-use single file relocatable Python run-time -
available for Linux, Mac OS X and Unix platforms,
with support for Python 2.6, 2.7 and now
**also for Python 3.4**.
This announcement is also available on our web-site for online reading:
eGenix PyRun is our open source, one file, no installation version of
Python, making the distribution of a Python interpreter to run based
scripts and applications to Unix based systems as simple as copying a
eGenix PyRun's executable only needs 11MB for Python 2 and 13MB for
Python 3, but still supports most Python application and scripts - and
it can be compressed to just 3-4MB using upx, if needed.
Compared to a regular Python installation of typically 100MB on disk,
eGenix PyRun is ideal for applications and scripts that need to be
distributed to several target machines, client installations or
It makes "installing" Python on a Unix based system as simple as
copying a single file.
eGenix has been using the product internally in the mxODBC Connect
Server since 2008 with great success and decided to make it available
as a stand-alone open-source product.
We provide both the source archive to build your own eGenix PyRun, as
well as pre-compiled binaries for Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X, as 32-
and 64-bit versions. The binaries can be downloaded manually, or you
can let our automatic install script install-pyrun take care of the
installation: ./install-pyrun dir and you're done.
Please see the product page for more details:
This is a patch level release of eGenix PyRun 2.0. The major new
feature in 2.0 is the added Python 3.4 support.
* Upgraded eGenix PyRun to work with and use Python 2.7.8 per default.
Enhancements / Changes
* Fixed a bug in the license printer to show the correct license URL.
install-pyrun Quick Install Enhancements
eGenix PyRun includes a shell script called install-pyrun, which
greatly simplifies installation of PyRun. It works much like the
virtualenv shell script used for creating new virtual environments
(except that there's nothing virtual about PyRun environments).
With the script, an eGenix PyRun installation is as simple as running:
This will automatically detect the platform, download and install the
right pyrun version into targetdir.
We have updated this script since the last release:
* Updated install-pyrun to default to eGenix PyRun 2.0.1 and its

Version 1.1 adds support for Python3.3, and also directly intercepting
classes as well
as modules or functions.
CaptureMock is a tool for creating mocks via a "true" capture-replay
style approach. It records interactions to a separate file which can
then be used for replay in future runs. It is thus not another
"EasyMock" clone. Interaction can be recaptured from a real
system at any point, and no mock code needs to be written. It handles
Python calls, command-line programs, and synchronous messaging over
networks. Custom clients can now also be written for any language.

I'm happy to announce that Pylint 1.3.1 and Astroid 1.2.1 were
released. These releases include some bugfixes with the new string
formatting checker and a couple of crash fixes. Please note that
Pylint 1.3.X is the last version of Pylint which supports Python 2.5
1.3.4 fixes an issue with Python 3.4 and initializing a TestSuite
properly, along with a couple of other minor issues.
Also note that nose 1.x is in maintenance mode. We will not be
looking to add any features, and you should seriously consider
looking at nose2 as the way forward.
If you're interested in the future of nose, please take a look at the
nose2 project on github (https://github.com/nose-devs/nose2) or pypi
And lastly if you have the money to spare, please consider donating to
the John Hunter memorial fund (http://numfocus.org/johnhunter/). We
all give up time with our families to work on free software: so now
the free software community that has benefited so much from that
time we took can give something back to his family.
MediaProvider *v0.1.02* has been released. This is a *alpha bugfix release*
intended for testing and development purposes.
- Database connection related exceptions like "... already closed" or related
to objects created in different threads have been resolved.
*About the project*
MediaProvider  is an Open Source project to provide media in your network.
It should be irrelevant on which device they should be played back or where
the data is stored.
Test results can be published on the user community . More detailed
information how to get all relevant details are available in the user guide on
the web site. The source code for all modules being used are on github .
Please visit our development web site  for more information.
As the first step a MediaServer compliant to the UPnP standard is available for
duty. It should be accessible by any DLNA compatible device. But this Python-
based software should not only be a UPnP / DLNA server. A HTML5 interface
intended for SmartTVs and mobile devices should bring a MediaCenter interface
where it belongs to: To the TV screen.
*Indiegogo NAS campaign*
To bring the project one step closer to this goal we need your help. An
Indiegogo  campaign should provide this young project the funds to buy a
Synology DiskStation DS414slim and four hard drives. This development unit is
intended to be placed in a cellar or corridor to stream not only all the media
to the living room but the MediaCenter interface as well.
