PCEF is code editing framework for PySide applications.

It provides a flexible code editor ready to use in any PySide applications. Flexibility is achieved through a system of editor extensions (custom panels and modes).

Here are the core features:

  • flexible framework to add custom panels/modes
  • syntax highlighting mode (using pygments)
  • code completion
  • line number Panel
  • code folding Panel
  • markers Panel (to add breakpoints, bookmarks, errors,...)
  • right margin indicator mode
  • active line highlighting mode
  • editor zoom mode
  • find and replace Panel
  • text decorations (squiggle, box)
  • easy styling (built-in white and dark styles + possibility to customize using JSON style schemes)
  • auto indent mode(indentation level is based on the previous line indent)

Here are the python specific features:

  • code completion (using Jedi)
  • calltips
  • syntax and style checking (using pylint, pyflakes and pep8)

  • smart indent
