Wing Python IDE for Mac was designed from the ground up for Python, to bring you a more productive development experience. Wingware’s 20 years of Python IDE experience bring you a more Pythonic development environment. Wing IDE for macOS was designed from the ground up for Python, written in Python, and is extensible with Python. So you can be more productive.
Type less and let Wing for macOS worry about the details. Get immediate feedback by writing your Python code interactively in the live runtime. Easily navigate code and documentation. Avoid common errors and find problems early with assistance from Wing’s deep Python code analysis.
Keep code clean with smart refactoring and code quality inspection. Debug any Python code. Inspect debug data and try out bug fixes interactively without restarting your app. Work locally or on a remote host, VM, or container.
Wing’s focus on interactive development works well for scientific and data analysis with Jupyter, NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, pandas, and other frameworks. The debugger’s data frame and array viewer make it easy to inspect large data sets.
It supports development with Django, Flask, web2py, Pyramid, Google App Engine, and other web frameworks. The debugger can step through Django and web2py templates. It works seamlessly with code running on a remote host, virtual machine, or containers such as Vagrant or WSL.
Since Wing’s debugger can run in embedded instances of Python, it can be used to develop scripts for Blender, Autodesk Maya, NUKE, Source Filmmaker, and another modeling, rendering, and compositing applications that use Python. The app also works with pygame and other Python-based game engines.
Wing IDE for Mac can develop, test, and debug desktop applications with PyQt, wxPython, Tkinter, and other UI development frameworks. Scripting, Raspberry Pi, and other types of development are also supported.
Wing 7 introduces an improved code warnings and code quality inspection system that includes built-in error detection and tight integration with pylint, pep8, and mypy. This release also adds a new data frame and array viewer, a MATLAB keyboard personality, easy inline debug data display with Shift-Space, improved stack data display, support for PEP 3134 chained exceptions, callouts for search and other code navigation features, four new color palettes, improved bookmarking, a high-level configuration menu, magnified presentation mode, a new update manager, stepping over import internals, simplified remote agent installation, and much more.
Features and Highlights
Wing’s editor speeds up interactive Python development with context-appropriate auto-completion and documentation, inline error detection and code quality analysis, PEP 8 enforcement, invocation assistance, auto-editing, refactoring, code folding, multi-selection, customizable code snippets, and much more. It can emulate vi, emacs, Eclipse, Visual Studio, XCode, and MATLAB.
Wing’s debugger makes it easy to fix bugs and write new Python code interactively. Use conditional breakpoints to isolate a problem, then step through code, inspect data, try out bug fixes with the Debug Console’s command line, watch values, and debug recursively. You can debug multi-process and multi-threaded code launched from the IDE, hosted in a web framework, called from an embedded Python instance, or run on a remote host, VM, or container. It also provides an array and data frame viewer for scientific and data analysis tasks.
Easy Code Navigation
It makes it easy to get around code with goto-definition, find uses, find the symbol in the project, editor symbol index, module and class browser, keyboard-driven search, and powerful multi-file search. Visit history is stored automatically, so you can instantly return to a previously visited code. Or define and traverse categorized bookmarks that track automatically as code changes.
Integrated Unit Testing
The app supports test-driven development with the unittest, doctest, nose, pytest, and Django testing frameworks. Failing tests are easy to diagnose and fix with Wing’s powerful debugger, and you can write new code interactively in the live runtime context set up by a unit test.
Wing’s quick-to-configure remote development support delivers all of Wing’s features seamlessly and securely to Python code running on a remote host, VM, or container. Remote development is possible to hosts running macOS and Linux, including Raspberry Pi, WSL, and Vagrant containers.
Customizable and Extensible
Wing IDE for Mac offers hundreds of configuration options affecting editor emulation, display themes, syntax coloring, UI layout, and much more. Easily switch to and from dark mode, magnify the interface for presentations and meetings, and use perspectives to manage task-specific UI configurations. New IDE features can be added by writing Python code that calls down to Wing’s scripting API. You can even develop and debug your extension scripts with Wing.
And Much More
It supports project management and revision control with Git, Mercurial, Perforce, Bazaar, Subversion, and CVS. Other features include support for virtualenv, a difference/merge tool, indentation style conversion, and executing OS command lines. Wing runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux, and also supports remote development to Raspberry Pi and other ARM Linux devices.
