Welcome to nbPython!

The nbPython Project develops and maintains Python support for the NetBeans IDE (Python plugins).
Our primary goals are to (1) meet the Quality Criteria for NetBeans plugins, and (2) add new functionality. Our ultimate goal is to make nbPython the best choice for a multipurpose Python IDE.

nbPython is a community-supported, open-source project. Our contributors are engineers and technologists from around the world who donate their efforts in pursuit of "a better Python IDE".

We are NOT actively or directly supported by any company. However, we are aligned with Netbeans.org, in terms of distribution and licensing. Source code and executables are licensed under a dual license consisting of the GNU GPL V2.1 and CDDL v1.0. See NetBeans licensing for details.
