Pydev 1.4.6 released / Google App Engine on Pydev video

Pydev 1.4.6 has just been released.

The major highlights in this release are:

The project and interpreter configuration was improved:
  • The pydev package explorer will now show problems in the project configuration (until now, those misconfigurations wouldn't be properly shown and some subtle problems could arise because of those misconfigurations);
  • The project pythonpath can use variables;
  • The interpreter can be referred from a user-given identification.

There is an easier way to create and manage a Google App Engine project in Pydev. The video below shows how to properly config/upload/manage it from Pydev:

Well I'am sorry that I'am writing here but can you tell if there is any chance that PyDev will support Cython syntax and pyx files in some near future?

Thank you

There are no plans for supporting .pyx files right now.

p.s. This is more suited for the users forum: http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=293649

Hi great wrok, i want to know when will be compatible with eclipse galileo.

regards,

Fabio Zadrozny said...

I believe 1.4.6 should be already compatible with Eclipse 3.5, but official support will be available only on the next release (1.4.7).

Hi there. Thanks for the video. I have PyDev on Mac OS X v 10.5.7 running eclipse 3.4.2. I installed PyDev version 1.4.6 together with PyDev Extensions (licensed). I could follow your demo regarding creating applications for Google App Engine up to the point where you click on the src folder and select "Run As Google App Engine". That option does not show up on my machine. Is there some configuration parameter I need to set or a known workaround?

Fabio Zadrozny said...

Please add that as a bug report... I've to check it on a Mac to see what could be happening.

Very sleek :)

We woud love Cython syntax support for .pyx files. A lot of serious Python work involves some kind of Cython optimization.

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for the video, it helped a lot! I do however want to point out one minor problem I had, and I think that this will be strictly for Mac users:

If you are having trouble finding the Google App Engine Directory on a Mac (In the video this is around 3:10), you can find by going through the following folders: GoogleAppEngineLauncher.app/Contents/Resources/GoogleAppEngine-default.bundle/Contents/Resources/google_appengine

I hope this helps anyone who is having trouble at that step in the video!
