A small Python 3 editor for learning and competitive programming.
I built expressPython to scratch an itch that I had. I wanted a tool that does following for me.
- Runs easily in windows, portable, doesn't affect system.
- I wanted a tool to test regexes, small scripts.
- Online IDEs cannot access my file system I need to access files If I wanted to.
- Online IDEs are sometimes slow at peak times or for non premium uses.
- You cannot access Online IDEs once you are in the underground train :bullettrain_side: .
- It should start fast and I don't need to create files to test things
- Suitable to simulate HackerRank . (Has an input window and output window, works with stdin)
- I wanted to learn C++/Qt and polish Python knowledge.
- Compiled to 32bit will work on a 64bit machine.
- Type some text in to
inputsection and process it using quick scripts.

This is fairly simple to use.
- Tabs are replaced by 4 spaces.
\t(tab) character is highlighted in red.
- There are basic auto-complete features. Use: ctrl + space
- Content in the input can be read using
- You can write to output using
- This is not a full IDE and is not planning to be.
Standing on the shoulders of the giants.
- Qt 5.9.x (Or newer is used)
- Python 3.7.x
- Jedi (latest) - https://github.com/davidhalter/jedi
- Frankie Simon's Python Syntax Highlight Code (Modified)
- Mateusz Loskot's Embedding Code (Modified)
- Train Icon from https://www.awicons.com
- All Other Icons from Open Icon Library
This project uses
QMake to build.
- Python 3.7.x (32bit)
- Qt 5.9.x (GPL Version, MinGW 32bit)
64Bit versions should also work. But it is not tested yet.
Easiest way to compile is to use QtCreator and to build the binary.
PYTHON37_LOCATION- On windows set this to parent of
python.exeof a 32bit Python 3.7 installation.
PYTHON37_INC_LOCATIONshould be set to lib and include paths.
You can safely ignore this section if you are not interested in customizing/developing.

_express_startup_.pyas you see fit.
One of the reasons for creating this was to teach python. You can checkout my Python 3 tutorial series at http://pandabunnytech.com
