What's New in Wing 7.2

Auto-Reformatting with Black and YAPF (Wing Pro)

Wing 7.2 adds support for Black and YAPF for code reformatting, in addition to the previously available built-in autopep8 reformatting. To use Black or YAPF, they must first be installed into your Python with pip, conda, or other package manager. Reformatting options are available from the Source > Reformatting menu group, and automatic reformatting may be configured in the Editor > Auto-reformatting preferences group.

See Auto-Reformatting for details.

Improved Support for Virtualenv

Wing 7.2 improves support for virtualenv by allowing the command that activates the environment to be entered in the Python Executable in Project Properties, Launch Configurations, and when creating new projects. The New Project dialog now also includes the option to create a new virtualenv along with the new project, optionally specifying packages to install.

See Using Wing with Virtualenv for details.

Support for Anaconda Environments

Similarly, Wing 7.2 adds support for Anaconda environments, so the conda activate command can be entered when configuring the Python Executable and the New Project dialog supports using an existing Anaconda environment or creating a new one along with the project.

See Using Wing with Anaconda for details.
