[link] Python Tools for Visual Studio (PTVS)

Posted 05 July 2013 - 12:59 PM


What? No IronPython and I can just hook up my VS to use CPython? I guess there is less and less of a reason not to look into picking up the basics of Python!


The Misconceptions

  • Microsoft? Python? Oh, it must be all about IronPython, that's dead, right?
    • IronPython is a community-run project and just put an 2.7.4 alpha out last month. PTVS fully supports IronPython, but the most advanced support is for standard CPython!

  • PTVS needs VisualStudio? I don't have any money.
    • PTVS, combined with the Integrated/isolated VS Shell is completely and perpetually free. And with the advent of VS2013, they've combined them into a single installer: https://pytools.codeplex.com/releases .


I already have Visual Studio and just want to install PTVS!

2.0 Beta Release (in progress):
2013: PTVS 2.0 Beta VS 2013.msi (Recommended)
2012: PTVS 2.0 Beta VS 2012.msi
2010: PTVS 2.0 Beta VS 2010.msi

1.5 RTM Release (stable):
2010: https://pytools.code...oads/get/523959
2012: https://pytools.code...oads/get/523956

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 1
