bpython is a fancy interface to the Python interpreter for Linux, BSD, OS X and Windows (with some work). bpython is released under the MIT License. It has the following (special) features:

  • In-line syntax highlighting
  • Readline-like autocomplete with suggestions displayed as you type.
  • Expected parameter list for any Python function.
  • "Rewind" function to pop the last line of code from memory and re-evaluate.
  • Send the code you've entered off to a pastebin.
  • Save the code you've entered to a file.
  • Auto-indentation.
  • Python 3 support.

A special thanks to the Recurse Center who decided to devote a team of young developers to work on bpython as part of their training programme. They're based in New York City and have a great attitude towards the development of programmers of all genders and backgrounds - take a look.
