Eric is a full featured Python and Ruby editor and IDE, written in Python. It is based on the cross platform Qt GUI toolkit, integrating the highly flexible Scintilla editor control. It is designed to be usable as an everyday quick and dirty editor as well as being usable as a professional project management tool, integrating many advanced features that Python offers the professional coder. Eric includes a plug-in system, which allows easy extension of the IDE functionality with plug-ins downloadable from the net. Current stable versions are Eric4 based on Qt4 and Python 2 and Eric5 based on Python 3 and Qt4.
The QtLua library aims to make Qt 4 applications scriptable using the Lua scripting language. It is an alternative to the QtScript module. QtLua does not generate or use generated binding code for Qt. Instead it provides useful C++ wrapper classes to make C++ and Lua objects accessible from both Lua and C++. It takes advantage of the Qt meta object system to expose QObject members to Lua scripts and comes with user manual and examples.
