IEP (pronounced as 'eep') is a cross-platform Python IDE focused on interactivity and introspection, which makes it very suitable for scientific computing. Its practical design is aimed at simplicity and efficiency.

IEP is written in Python 3 and Qt. Binaries are available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. For questions, there is a discussion group.


Some key features
(see Features for a more complete list): More Info »

Powerful introspection (autocompletion, calltips, interactive help): uses information from both the interactive shell and the source code.
Allows various ways to run code interactively or to run a file as a script.
The shells runs in a subprocess and can therefore be interrupted or killed.
Multiple shells can be used at the same time, and can be of different Python versions (from v2.4 to 3.x)
Support for using several GUI toolkits interactively: PySide, PyQt4, wx, fltk, GTK, Tk.
Supports magic commands similar to IPython.
Full Unicode support in both editor and shell.
Various handy tools, plus the ability to make your own.
Matlab-style cell notation to mark code sections (by starting a line with '##').
Highly customizable using the menu. More Info »
