Interactive REPL support in Idea 10?

Hi all,

I seem to recall seeing a plan to have better interactive REPL support in Idea 10 - did that make it in? I'd like to create a decent REPL (syntax colouring, history support using normal arrow keys, ideally allowing code formatting) and my understanding was that this was hard to impossible previously. If this did make it in, are there any examples I can look at?

Cheers,
Colin

Hello Colin,

This did make it in - see the LanguageConsoleImpl class in the CE source.
Unfortunately the specific console implementations (Python and Ruby) are
not part of the open-source codebase.
