Welcome to the Python Project. This is an open-source Java project which aims to update Python support for NetBeans to (1) meet the Quality Criteria for NetBeans plugins, and (2) add new functionality going forward.
"This is a community-driven effort. Oracle does not actively participate in or directly support this effort."
Lou Dasaro is the Project Leader. If you are interested in contributing, either as an Engineer, Analyst or Tester, please email him at the address shown on the development plan Alternatively, you can join our free-standing forums.nbPython.org and send your request there. Join us, won't you?
If you are using NetBeans 8.1, by 30-Nov-2015 you should be able to access the Python plugin directly from the IDE 8.1 Tools->Plugin menu. In the meantime, you can download a .zip file containing the plugins from the Plugin Portal at Netbeans.org
This plugin is self-signed and ONLY works with IDE 8.1. For more info, see the Python wiki page .
There are several other pages at NetBeans.org that you may find useful:
- Most people will just need to consult http://wiki.netbeans.org/Python .
