Python Portable 2.5.2 Development Test 1

I have updated my portable version of Python to comply with the latest launcher specs etc.

Application: Python
Category: Development
Description: Python is a dynamic object-oriented programming language that can be used for many kinds of software development. It offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools, comes with extensive standard libraries, and can be learned in a few days.

Download Python Portable 2.5.2 Development Test 1 - currently offline due to server space.
20/03/08 21.08 GMT

Please give it a try and post your feedback.

Regards,
Geoff

Release Notes:
This currently only supports the Python command line. With more time and experimentation I will be looking at incorporating the Python GUI or IDLE as it is better known. The release will mirror Blender Portable requirements and therefore any future release of Blender will determine the release version of Python Portable. Blender is currently built on Python 2.5.

Development Test 1 (2008-03-11):

  • initial release

IDLE

Integrating IDLE or some other editor (SciTe ? Notepad++ ?) would be a real great idea !

How about SPE?

How about SPE IDE - Stani's Python Editor? pythonide.blogspot.com/
Have been using it some lately, seems quite good. It's not portable as is, but it shouldn't take too much effort to make it portable.

I've been looking for a way

I've been looking for a way to make Python and SPE portable for a long time. I'd really appreciate it if someone actually managed to do this. It's a great IDE (the best one for Python IMO), and would make life much easier for developers if it could be made portable.

I used the Metalink Library to automatically create BitTorrent and eDonkey download links for you.

It would be great if you could provide a test version of Python 2.6a1, too, in order to help people test their current code for deprecation.
I, for instance, could not finish the installation on my machine (parallel to 2.5.2).

If you need help with distributing your releases, just let me know.

It is quite easy to use the existing launcher for Python 2.6a1.

Remove the contents of the PythonPortable/App/Python25 folder. If you have Python26a1 installed, copy the Python26 contents (not the folder though) and paste them into the existing Pyton25 folder in the PythonPortable/App section. That should work fine. Let me know otherwise.

I will possibly be dropping further interest with Python Portable and only offer it as a base addon for full use of python plugins etc with Blender.

Although I had been working on scripts to run a bat file and set a file association, I realised that I was putting too much into something that I really would never use myself. Sorry to those that were hoping that I would get the IDLE (Python GUI) working with the Python Portable.

When I get my server space sorted I will put it back up for anyone that wants it or even would like to continue with it if I do drop support.

Good

I didn't find any problems on my end. I think I'm finally going to take some time to learn Python.

Can we get it with Bazaar VCS integrated in the package? That would be great!

pdb.py, base64.py elf executables?

from the command line:

> file C:\PortableApps\Python\App\Python25\Lib\pdb.py
pdb.py; ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, corrupted section header size

... i guess there's something wrong! Sad

However after replacing with the correct files from http://svn.python.org/projects/python/branches/release25-maint/Lib/
it works! Smile

I can't download it

I can't download it because it says "currently offline due to server space." Why don't you upload it on MediaFire or something like that for now?

Yes indeed

I have additional commitments that will keep me away from developing any further for quite some time. It's a shame as I was hoping to contribute to the community more and push to get the main supported apps upto the latest spec etc.

Work and home have taken more than I had expected as of late and I am looking into starting a Graphic Design course in September which will last 3 years. This will add to my existing background of 2D/3D CAD.

If you are interested I recommend working with Perica, as he to has a Python Portable.

good luck with the graphics

good luck with the graphics design course, and Python Portable is now in good hands.
btw, Perica, do you have an email adress of some sort so that we can collaberate on this?
EDIT: nvm, found it. drop me an email if you wish, at taneth111 [AT] gmail{.}com.

as in Python portable or IDLE? i've got it as well, but it IDLE is being a pain & may require a re-write to portablise.

IDLE is looking a little

IDLE is looking a little easier now. it does, however, save settings in Lib\idlelib and %userprofile%\.idlerc .
EDIT: Done, but I'll upload it in the morning.

win32

Has anyone been able to get the win32 module to work portably? Copying from installation isn't enough.
