Elpy 1.9.0 released

I just released version 1.9.0 of Elpy, the Emacs Python Development Environment. This is a feature release.

Elpy is an Emacs package to bring powerful Python editing to Emacs. It combines a number of other packages, both written in Emacs Lisp as well as Python.

Quick Installation

Evaluate this:

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives
             '("elpy" .

Then run M-x package-install RET elpy RET.

Finally, run the following (and add them to your .emacs):


Changes in 1.9.0

  • Elpy now supports the autopep8 library for automatically formatting Python code. All refactoring-related code is now grouped under C-c C-r. Use C-c C-r i to fix up imports using importmagic, C-c C-r p to fix up Python code with autopep8, and C-c C-r r to bring up the old Rope refactoring menu.
  • C-c C-b will now select a region containing surrounding lines of the current indentation or more.
  • C-c C-z in a Python shell will now switch back to the last Python buffer, allowing to use the key to cycle back and forth between the Python buffer and shell.
  • The pattern used for C-c C-s is now customizeable in elpy-rgrep-file-pattern.
  • <C-return> now can be used to send the current statement to the Python shell. Be careful, this can break with nested statements.
  • The Elpy minor mode now also works in modes derived from python-mode, not just in the mode itself.

Thanks to ChillarAnand, raylu and Chedi for their contributions!
