What IDE do you use for MEL development?


#268

For Python I found Pyscripter very useful and for Mel Maxya
Pyscripter website


#269

Pyscripter require to install python 32.
But if you work with 64 version and have some additional modules installed , you can’t use shell.

One thing i don’t like about komodo is that it don’t display full docstring from methods.
Maybe it can be enabled somehow?

So i tested wingide recently and i think it is really good.
It is userfriendly , but still it has “all” features like komodo or eclipse.

It have some problems with ui , for example you must run windows aero theme , or you will have “ghosting” windows , but other things are fine , so far.

Komodo is the great IDE. Just one thing. How to set highlighting simmilar objects, I mean if I have one variable, repeated few times and I select/highlight it, others should highlight to, like in Notepad++.


#271

Maxya updated for Maya 2011 and 2012 .
commandPort removed due to unstability.
Mel Command and command parameters updated.
Direct Connection is refunctioning again.
regards.


#272

Is it possible to send python commands from Maxya to Maya?


#273

yes :
Maxya Settings>Python>Python Connection
must be set to “Use Maya”


#274

OK, Thanks!


#275

I use a pimped version of gvim, with ctags, taglist, syntax hightlighting for mel and python, auto complete for mel and python. It’s fast, free, great :slight_smile:

You want mel/python IDE for Maya? Maxya beats ALL!!!

currently using Maxya LE 4.5.0.3. Install, and all you need is to put a plugin into Maya plugins folder, enable the plugin and Maya and it’s good to go!

in case they change the link again, you should just go www.tarzmedia.com

O, and downloading from the main site is a total pain in the ass. Keeps getting interrupted. Here’s a torrent link:

If you are more to python, you should consider eclipse… it’s a lot more heavier but doesn’t cost you a cent except a bit of setup


#277

The best IDE that I have used for MEL is “Cutter” :thumbsup:

you can download it here. http://fundza.com/

give it a try, it has very cool functions


#278

I have to say Maxya is the best. Ive been using it for years now… and has really helped me making mel scripts.


#279

Notepad++
It’s a source code editor.
Probably not the best, but it covers my needs.

#281

#283

#284

for lack of better expression “LOL” what are you referring to…?


#285

I use ultraedit and notepad++


#286

Got a license for WingIDE


#287

I’ve been using Charcoal Editor for the past several weeks now. I still use Eclipse from time-to-time, but I find the working directly in Maya streamlines my workflow.
