    Python interpreter and the standard library is available for several platforms (http://www.python.org/download/) but it's of course missing Series60 specific modules. For Mac OS X there's something called "Series 60 Compatibility Library" but the rest of us are forced to work tightly on the target environment.

    From Tools & SDKs section of Forum Nokia you'll find PythonForSeries60 SDK for developing native C++ based extension modules for Python.

    List of development tools (including IDEs) can be found here http://www.python.org/moin/DevelopmentTools.

    Standard tools

    If you install the standard Python package from www.python.org, you get a nice IDE (IDLE) that you can use for editing code. Fancier tools exist also; my favorite is Boa Constructor.

    If you install Python version 2.2.2 on a PC, you can copy new library modules from the Python library which by default is in C.\Python2.2\Lib\ . Many of these work just fine, but of course your mileage may vary.

    If you need more fancy libraries (e.g., for XML processing), check the links at

    very nice option for IDE is Eclipse
    http://www.eclipse.org/
    with Pydev plugin
    http://pydev.sourceforge.net/

    TruStudio by xored is Eclipse based alternative
    http://www.xored.com/trustudio

    BTW there is Symbian C++ development plugin for Eclipse as well
    http://www.newlc.com/article.php3?id_article=497
    CDT stands for C/C++ Development Tools for Eclipse http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/

    python development tools

    hi all,

    thanyou very much for your support.

    well , now I have got the good options through this post for python development. But is there any Puthon plugin for Borland too because I am using Borland's "C++ BuilderX". And it would be great to have an plugin for this IDE.

    and adding one more silly question. What do I need to know to start development in Python ?

    best regards,
    dotcdotc

    Could you please give a bit more details and how to set it up?

    I've installed Eclipse and PyDev.
    I've also added the folder 'Symbian\8.x\S60_x\epoc32\release\wins\udeb\z\system\Libs' to PYTHON_PATH
    But this isn't very helpful up to that point: when writing code, I can't check what valid methods or variables exist in a class for example (although the libraries are there).
    Alos, how can you get it to work in the emulator when you run it?

    I don't think you can. PyDev is a general Python IDE, not one made specifically for S60 programming. At least I don't think it's possible.

    You should be able to configure eclipse to run python files using the SDK for example. I'm certain somebody out there has already done that.
