Features of the next IDE

  • Insert example "for" blocks into code, like templates. Do for everything. Make code readable like a natural language
  • Offer alternatives to what you are writing e.g. from an open source compendium of written code e.g. from stackoverflow, integrated right into the IDE.
  • Save different versions of the same function and integrate seamlessly with version control system to see history of the code and functions
  • Automatically tell you when functions are getting too long
  • Help you to stick to conventions e.g. pep 8 etc
  • Automatically checks for usings and reduces them to the minimal amounts - suggests them if they aren't already listed
