 rope, a python refactoring library ...


`Rope`_ is a python refactoring library.

.. _`rope`:

New Features

* caching all sub-modules of a module in `rope.contrib.autoimport`
* fix recursion when creating modules
* added basic support for setuptools
* extract method handles conditional variable updates
* added `rope.contrib.codeassist.CompletionProposal.parameters`

The `rope.contrib.autoimport.AutoImport.generate_module_cache()` has
been changed to handle module names that end with ``.*``.  Now one can
use ``rope.*`` to mean `rope` and all of its sub-modules.

Extract method now handles variable updates better.  For instance in::

  def f(a):
      if 0:
          a = 1

When extracting the first two lines of `f()`, `a` should be passed to
`g()`.  Although these lines don't read `a`, if the conditional write
(like in ``if`` or ``while`` blocks) does not happen, it results in an
error.  So the outcome will be::

  def f(a):
      a = g(a)

  def g(a):
      if 0:
          a = 1
      return a
