Pyrepl

http://codespeak.net/pyrepl/
This is pyrepl, a readline-a-like in Python. It requires python 2.2 (or newer) with the curses and termios modules built and features:

  • sane multi-line editing
  • history, with incremental search
  • completion, including displaying of available options
  • a fairly large subset of the readline emacs-mode keybindings (adding more is mostly just a matter of typing)
  • a new python top-level
  • no global variables, so you can run two or more independent readers without having their histories interfering.
  • no hogging of control -- it should be easy to integrate pyrepl into YOUR application's event loop.
  • generally speaking, a much more interactive experience than readline (it's a bit like a cross between readline and emacs's mini-buffer)
  • unicode support (given terminal support)
