I decided that the ultimate python IDE would basically be a vim editor
with a hotkey or button that ran the currently edited module as
"__main__", allowing gui (tkinter, wx) windows to spawn etc.
I tried the "runscript.vim" plugin which basically promises this, but it
seems to have some problems:
1. stdout is insert at the cursor
2. This error message is given upon exit:
E172: Only one file name allowed:
silent botright new Output window
3. This error message is given upon trying to write changes:
E382: Cannot write, 'buftype' option is set
Anyway, what would really be cool is idle, with vim, running as split
window with a hotkey or button to run scripts.
Even IDLE complains about subprocesses and binding ports, etc. But IDLE
doesn't use vim, so its not really an option, unless it CAN use vim
somehow--and I can get past the port binding. Not really interested on
getting past this port binding issue unless IDLE can be used with vim,
Any advice from someone who has gotten runscript to work or knows of a
tool like I describe would be greatly appreciated.
