Pydev Extensions is a plug-in that works with PyDev to deliver an enhanced development environment, providing (among other features) code-analysis, code completion with auto-import, an excellent implementation of 'go to definition', remote debugging, 'quick-fixes', etc.

This video passes through some of the 'power-features': its many code-completion flavours, helpers to navigate through source code, code analysis and quick-fixes. More information can be found in the manual.

Thanks. I am looking for an overview on how to develop a professional application. Mainly looking for tools, standards and approach to release a product.

It is cool, thank you!

Good intro to pydev thnx

Again, very interesting. I'm piqued, but it still seems to assume a high degree of prior python knowledge- is there a more comprehensive introduction if even as text?

Thank you, very helpful

cool, please make more fabio

Nice video. I'd been using pydev for a while now and find it very good.

This video was something that pushed me to try it.

Great work. Your presentation shows, you feel the user on the other side.

Thanks for the work

Very informative tutorial! Thank you!

I am new and could like to learn Pydev.

Your video is interesting.

Thank you



Simply perfect. Thanks for making them.

Nice short and to the point videos!

Great video on a great tool!

I've been using PyDev for a while, but this video helped me to remember a few useful features that I had forgotten.

Nice video... very interesting.. especially the way you ask for feedback!!!

Thank you fabio for sharing your knowledge with us. I find your video clips very informative and right to the point.

Very handy. One improvement would be to have a functionality descrioption displayed next to the keystroke text that performs it. Would make it clear what you pres to do what.

Thanks for a good introduction to some editor features.

Good intro.

I would like to see if PyDev helps with aguments to method calls - maybe that is in the next video.

55. Hellmut Gerichhausen Sun, 07 Feb 2010 05:11

Thanks on that items. This helps a lot.

sound is too low but otherwise a good video.

Very nicely done. Great taste of how good Python/Eclipse are together with PyDev.

52. anonymous Tue, 29 Dec 2009 05:37


I think I'll switch to Eclipse Pydev since it seems really powerful.

Thanks to Fabio for all his work, explanations and answers to the users list.

Would have nice if the audio was a lot louder

50. anonymous Sun, 06 Dec 2009 00:19

Good illustrations of functionality. Which version of PyDev was this?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for fabiofz
