rope, a python refactoring IDE ...


Ropeide is a python refactoring IDE. It uses rope library to provide features like refactoring, code assist, and auto-completion. It is written in python. The IDE uses Tkinter library.

You should install rope library before using this IDE.

New Features

  • Added codeassist_maxfixes config
  • Supporting global_ option in extract refactorings
  • Supporting only_current option for inline refactoring

codeassist_maxfixes can be used to set the maximum number of syntax errors to fix before showing code-assist proposals. This option can be set in the ~/.ropeide file like:

# inside `starting_rope` function
core.set('codeassist_maxfixes', 2)

Getting Started

To change rope IDE preferences like font edit your ~/.ropeide (which is created the first time you start rope). To change your project preferences edit $PROJECT_ROOT/.ropeproject/ where $PROJECT_ROOT is the root folder of your project (this file is created the first time you open a project).

If you don't like rope's default emacs-like keybinding, edit the default ~/.ropeide file and change i_like_emacs variable to False.
