Eclipse/PyDev question.

Hi,
this is actually a question to those of us who use Eclipse and Pydev
as their main Python developing environment. As i use Eclipse (3.3
Europa) only for Python and i have nothing to do with Java, is there a
way to disable/uninstall some Java-specific stuff and make the
environment actually more snappy ??

thanks for any help

I've used Eclipse for Java, Python, and Ruby development and can say
that AFAIK "Eclipse" and "snappy" are contradictions. Like "jumbo"
"shrimp" :-/

xexexe...I am sure about that :) I was wondering if we can throw away
some java-stuff and make our life easier (or, snappier)...

I wonder how long before they come out with a python version of
eclipse. I know there is a C/C++ now.

The only problem i see in Eclipse/Pydev solution is that Eclipse is
bulky...I was not designed for specific Python usage and because of
that we have a lot of stuff that does not concern us. I started to
look at Eric4 and i must way i like it a lot. I am not sure if i
switch yet but it seems very nice.

I like pydev and purchased the extensions ... there are bugs of course but
what stopped me from using it is a project were I had some very large files
(my fault).

I stopped using it and went for wing dev (I need Windows and Linux access)
and "there are bugs of course" ... but it is snappier.

I still like pydev and will try it again ... once I can afford a faster PC /
or have the time to re-factor my code.
PS: I just got today news about a "free" version of wing dev .. .worth the
try.

News" (or, news to me :) )

The creator of PyDev, contacted me and told me that latest version of
PyDev need not require the whole SDK but only the Runtime Platfom is
OK. That means that we download only the 40MB file (and not the 120
one) and this does not include all the Java stuff that we see in SDK.
So, combined with PyDev, we have an editor just for Python!

I test it a few hours now and it is really fast!

Ah, and i think that the working set of Eclipse is smaller now...

What do you mean by "very large files" ? Can't PyDev handle such ?
