This is a sequel to theĀ emacs and python using Rope post. Here I use the excellent Jedi library instead of rope.

  • You can remove the pymacs and ropemacs references from your .emacs
  • Install the required Python tools.
    • easy_install jedi
    • easy_install epc
  • Use M-x package-list-packages to install Jedi.el
  • Add the following to your .emacs:
    (autoload 'jedi:setup "jedi" nil t)
    (setq jedi:setup-keys t)
    (add-hook 'python-mode-hook
    (lambda ()
  • Have a look here to see what you can do now.
