ANN: SPE 0.7.0.a Python IDE now with uml viewer stani_ at
Tue Dec 21 12:24:51 CET 2004

Spe is a python IDE with auto-indentation, auto completion, call tips,
syntax coloring, uml viewer, syntax highlighting, class explorer,
source index, auto todo list, sticky notes, integrated pycrust shell,
python file browser, recent file browser, drag&drop, context help, ...
Special is its blender support with a blender 3d object browser and its
ability to run interactively inside blender. Spe ships with wxGlade
(gui designer), PyChecker (source code doctor) and Kiki (regular
expression console). Spe is extensible with wxGlade.

SPE offers now a built-in Python UML viewer. An Uml diagram is
hierarchal 2d map of classes. See for a nice screenshot.
Attentive users notice that the uml view also uses the separators of
the class explorer for a better outline. Once you get used to it, you
can't live without.

I see that still a lot of people are unfortunately downloading old
tar.gz versions. This makes absolutely no sense!! Because of problems
with tar.gz archives on the blender website, Linux and Mac users must
download the zip archive. I release them especially for that purpose.
The exe installer is of course for Windows.

A special thanks for everyone who donates. That always pushes me to new
release (hint,hint,...)

:Batteries included:
- Kiki:
Regular Expression (regex) console. For more info:
- PyChecker:
PyChecker is a tool for finding bugs in python source code. It
finds problems that are typically caught by a compiler for
less dynamic languages, like C and C++. It is similar to lint.
For more info:
- wxGlade:
wxGlade is a GUI designer written in Python with the
popular GUI toolkit wxPython, that helps you create
wxWindows/wxPython user interfaces. As you can guess by the
name, its model is Glade, the famous GTK+/GNOME GUI builder,
with which wxGlade shares the philosophy and the look & feel
(but not a line of code). For more info:
