Python + Emacs, contd.

On my neverending voyage towards the ultimate python IDE I stumbled across another nice tool: ropemacs! Ropemacs is an emacs binding to the rope library for refactoring python code. It also uses Pymacs, which aims towards employing Python as an extension language for emacs.

Installing Pymacs, rope, and ropemacs was fairly easy thanks to the excellent installation instructions - Kudos to the developers of rope and Pymacs! Good instructions are not a common thing for emacs extensions, it seems.

I think ropemacs will accompany my journey for the next few thousand lines of code, and we'll see how well we get along... I'll keep you posted! :)
