Wing IDE Personal Publisher's description
An integrated development environment (IDE) for the Python programming language
Wing IDE Personal is designed for for hobbyists and educational users that are looking for a lower-cost product and don't require the full feature set of Wing IDE Professional.
Wing understands your Python code and puts context appropriate-knowledge at your fingertips, whether you're typing in the editor, working in the source browser, managing your project, or debugging your application.
You can change the overall look and feel of the user interface on the fly by selecting among 28 themes including black background, low contrast, high contrast and large print options.
- Auto-completer: Reduces typing burden and typing mistakes. The completion options are always context-appropriate.
- Error indicators: Flag bad code as you type.
- Goto-definition: Jump directly to point of definition.
- Navigation menus: Layered menus in each editor provide a handy index into your code.
Wing can debug all forms of Python code, whether it is launched from the IDE, externally by a web server, or running as a script in an embedded copy of Python. In addition to basic breakpoint, flow control support, and stack data display, the Wing IDE Professional debugger provides the following power tools to reduce debugging time:
- Exception Detection: Wing distinguishes handled and unhandled exceptions at the moment that they occur, allowing inspection of runtime state at the point of failure, not after the fact.
- Change Debug Data: Debug data values can be changed from the graphical display and from the Debug Probe, as a way to test out alternative runtime environments while debugging.
Wing provides three different ways to search your source files: Quick search from the toolbar, emacs style keyboard driven interactive search, and using one or more instances of the Search Manager. Search capabilities include:
- Multi-file Search: Search through all project files or all open files, optionally constrained by file type.
- Disk Search: Search all files within a directory, or directory tree, optionally constrained by file type.
- Wildcard Search: Use simple wildcards as part of your search string.
- Regular Expression Search: Craft complex searches using regular expressions.
- Multi-file Replace: Replace search matches across multiple files.
Wing's editor is more than basic. In addition to the code intelligence features outlined above, it provides:
- Visual Studio, VI/Vim, Emacs, and Brief Emulation Optional key bindings are available to make Wing act like many of the most commonly used editors.
- Syntax Highlighting: Easy on your eyes, for over 50 different programming languages and file types
- Split Views: Divide editors horizontally, vertically, or any combination thereof. Multiple editable views can be opened into the same file.
- Notebook or Menu Selector: Select among open files within an editor using notebook tabs or a popup menu for easier navigation of larger file sets.
- Brace Matching: Automatic as you type, or select blocks within braces on command.
- Block Indentation: Select and indent, dedent, or indent-to-match whole blocks of code. This speeds refactoring, where code is being moved around.
- Block Commenting: Comment out or back in blocks of code with a single key stroke.
- Intelligent Rewrapping: Rewrap long lines of code, but only within appropriate logical lines as determined by Wing's source analyser.
- Line and Rectangle Selection Select and operate on ranges of text by character, whole lines, or rectangles.
- Visible White Space: Optionally, show spacing and/or line endings as visible characters.
- Unlimited Undo: Undo works as far back as necessary to the point where a file was opened.
- Line Numbering: Show optional line numbers.
- Evaluate File or Selection Select lines or evaluate a whole file quickly in the integrated Python Shell tool.
Wing is designed to look and work the way you want it to. You can alter:
- Windowing Mode: Change between single window and multi-window modes.
- Display Theme: Change the overall look and feel of the user interface on the fly by selecting among 28 themes, including black background, low contrast, high contrast, and large print options. Or, on Windows, let Wing adapt to your native look and feel. Font, size, and color options can also be altered on the editor and other areas.
- Tool Areas: Add or remove splits in the tool areas, add or remove instances of tools such as Stack Data or Search/Replace, or move tools around among areas or out to separate windows.
- Toolbar: Change the icon and text size and configuration.
- Key Bindings: Change between default and emacs key bindings, or alter individual bindings.
