New Project are in the way

Replacement for ClassBrowser

A small application to replace the Python ClassBrowser and PathBrowser. The project is waiting for you.

The Gravity Project

This project is a 3D engine to simulate large gravitational system. Based on Direct Python, it will be able to simulate a few million interactions per seconds. The interface should be made with a teaching objective, and must be user oriented. This project need a mathematician for some validation.


For more information about those future project, please contact me throught the Developers forums.

Project Information

About this project:

This is the Python standard Error optimization.project ("pybettererror")

This project was registered on on Dec 28, 2009. This small module goal is to make the debugging tool of python shell even better. By replacing a single method in the module sys, pybettererror insert in the traceback output, a direct link to the file and line number targeted by traceback information. Standard error traceback are more powerful with bettererror. It save you time. We always have to open some file related to the traceback informations, and scroll to the line in question anyway. So this module do it for you.

I used that code for many years. Someone could tell it's hacking into Python core. Yes it is. Python is made to grow with time, to be modified, enhanced, changed and played with. Thats the hole concept of Open Source software.

Want to know more about manipulation Python?

I use to work with Basic for many years, the language was rigid. We needed to create everything. Today with an evolved language like Python. And the philosophy that goes with it. We can change everything, except for the few reserved words and the "builtins", you can make it suit your needs with just a some small manipulation well placed. No other language can do what Python can. I have tried to find better. There is faster, but no other programming language is wiser than Python.
