Is there a friendly autocomplete for Blender’s Python text editor, similar to Atom? Or is there any way to edit Blender’s scripts from Atom? Blender’s text editor autocomplete sucks
since nobody cared to answer, I figured it out on my own. Here is the linky for those who have the same problem:
For all things Text Editor: How would you show some love for the Blender Text Editor?
There is an add-on which adds intellisense to the Text Editor among the add-ons.
thanks for the linky tin2tin,
PyCharm works for me sofar. The only (slightly) annoying thing is you have to work in two separate application windows.
If you want to do it properly, build Blender as Python module and install it into your PY env then use Liclipse or Eclipse with Python add-on. This method is native and does not require fake module files. Plus you can use the regular Python shells to run Blender commands inside the shell.
I am aware of that option, but it looks like too much work for me since I am not really a coder per se. Just trying to adapt some existing Python scripts for my needs. I also like to use the latest versions of Blender, and they keep updating it pretty often. I am on 2.8.2 now and I like it a lot. The only thing is, it doesn’t render the hair if you change it to Strip from Strand. Hope they fix it.
To be honest, Pycharm is bloated and barely works well with autocompletion. If you want a decent lightweight Python editor that does a better job overall
thanks man, I sure will!
There is a version 4 in the testing as well which looks and feels much better.
Your saying that this editor https://www.spyder-ide.org/ is better - So how would I use this with blender - so this package would make it easy to save and recall groups of code?
