ScriptWrangler: A light-weight script editor for embedded Python environments

As a UE4 Python tool example, I wrote a pretty bare bones script editor for UE4 and tossed it up on github. While my goal was making a tool to allow me to play around with UE4 Python, this is actually a lightweight script editor for any python environment that is lacking one.

Epic will make some kind of script editor in the future, but until then, feel free to use (and improve!) this one:

This requires PySide, you can pip install that, I gave an example in my previous post, here.

To run the script, you simply enter the path to it, example:

  1. http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html

  2. I actually use SciTE! But you kind of missed the point of this post, this tool is for spitballing and mocking up python inside an app like UE4, much like Maya’s script editor. This is not meant to be an external IDE.
