Python in NetBeans IDE 7.4

Let's set up NetBeans IDE 7.4 to use Python.

Go to Tools | Plugins and the Plugin Manager opens. In the Settings tab of the Plugin Manager, add a new update center with this URL:

http://deadlock.netbeans.org/hudson/job/nbms-and-javadoc/lastStableBuild/artifact/nbbuild/nbms/updates.xml.gz

Then go to the "Available Plugins" tab of the Plugin Manager and you'll find Python:

After installing the Python plugin, go to the New Project wizard and create your new Python project or import an existing Python project:

Then have fun with Python:

There's lots of features for Python, including debugging and code coverage.

If you don't expect it to be 100% perfect, you'll be 80% satisfied.
