The Interactive editor for Python

Main website:

API docs:


IEP (pronounced as eep) is a cross-platform Python IDE focused on interactivity and introspection, which makes it very suitable for scientific computing. Its practical design is aimed at simplicity and efficiency.

It consists of two main components, the editor and the shell, and uses a set of pluggable tools to help the programmer in various ways. Some example tools are source structure, project manager, interactive help, workspace ...

IEP is written in (pure) Python 3 and uses the Qt GUI toolkit. Binaries are provided for all major operating system. After installing IEP, it can be used to execute code on any Python version available on your system (Python 2.4 - 3.x, including Pypy).


IEP runs on Python3 and needs pyzolib and Pyside or PyQt4. On a modern OS these should be easy to obtain. One can then install IEP with sudo python3 -m pip install iep

We also provide binaries for Windows, Linux and OS X.


IEP is free and open source. BSD licensed.
