Product Description

“PythonEditor” is a plug-in for the CODESYS Development System and provides simplified access to important CODESYS functionalities via the integrated Python module “ScriptEngine”.

In addition to functions for auto-completion and syntax highlighting, code structuring and intelligent indentation also serve as tools to increase productivity during the development of automation solutions for CODESYS projects based on Python scripts.

As a result, the “Scripting Engine” not only allows CODESYS to be integrated into automated build server environments, but also to update libraries, generate code, or dynamically create machine configurations.
