Wing is a Python IDE that can be used to develop and test Python code written for IronPython.

Two versions of Wing are appropriate for use with this document: Wing Pro is the full-featured Python IDE for professional programmers, and Wing Personal is a free alternative with reduced feature set.

If you do not already have Wing installed, download it now.

This document describes how to configure Wing for IronPython. To get started using Wing as your Python IDE, please refer to the tutorial in Wing's Help menu or read the Quickstart Guide.

Project Configuration

For instructions on setting up Wing with IronPython, see IronPython and Wing: Using Wing Python IDE with IronPython. This article provides a script to help with setting up auto-completion for the .NET framework, and some information on how to get Wing to execute your code in IronPython. It was written by Michael Foord, co-author of the book IronPython in Action.

The script the article refers to is now shipped with Wing, in src\wingutils\generate_pi.py inside the Wing install directory, which is listed in Wing's About box.
