[Ironpython-users] IronPython hosting - providing syntax highlighting (and intellisense?!) to customers

Hi All,


We are intending to use IronPython to provide a simple expression engine
to our customers.

This will give them the ability to calculate some of their own results
from data stored in the database.


Being a software project, I say "simple expression" but I can easily see
it migrating towards a "complex expression" when customers get more
familiar with python.


Now, I can just give them a text area to stick some text in, and maybe
some tools to help build this text but... it seems like I should be able
to do better than this, and it seems like something that others would
have solved.


I'd really like the UI that the customer uses to compose an expression
to have python syntax highlighting to help them.

Furthermore, if we make .NET objects/functions available to the python
script, it would be fantastic if the user had some kind of intellisense
available to help them when interacting with the types we would make
available to the scripts to use.


Any advice, or experience with this?
