Emacs as a Python IDE

Thom Obarski

From the New York Emacs Meetup, Drew Werner shows how, with a little effort, Emacs can be a powerful, multi-language IDE with code completion, documentation lookup, and more. Using Python as our language, we will show how to use the the auto-complete, epc, and jedi.el libraries to create a semantically rich editing experience. We’ll discuss how these libraries work together and how to customize them for your own setup.
