Which has just reminded me of this http://idlex.sourceforge.net/ which 
is available from pypi, with the last update dated 2014-06-02.

I'll quote from the sourceforge page "IdleX is a collection of over 
twenty extensions and plugins that provide additional functionality to 
IDLE, a Python IDE provided in the standard library. It transforms IDLE 
into a more useful tool for academic research and development as well as 
exploratory programming.
IdleX runs with Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.x."
