I’ve downloaded the latest Panda3d and I’ve been browsing through the forums and the manual, and it all looks very exciting indeed. Well done everyone.
I’ve setup Eclipse as my IDE of choice for Python development (and indeed for pretty much everything else too these days… excellent IDE!), but it seems that Panda sets itself apart from the rest of my Python packages, and will not play with Eclipse atall.
Is it possible to use Eclipse to write PandaPython code?
A search of panda3d.org produces nothing but a few dead links. Last week I managed to get past the ‘404 not found’ pages via the google cache, where I found a page entitled ‘Eclipse and Panda3D’ and got a copy of panDE_1.1.0.zip. It doesn’t seem to have made much of a difference to eclipse, and the pages have gone from google and are still not accessable via the original address.
Can the Panda play in eclipse? If so, can anyone point me at a ‘how to’ page. If it’s not possible, what Editor would people recommend for building panda worlds with?
In the past I’ve worked with both DirectX and OpenGL using C++, but a combination of Python (which I’m just picking up) and Panda looks to be Awesome. A decent IDE will just top it all off!
A great product, powerful backers and an excellent community behind it all, what more could a developer want?
