Are there any extensions to add tabs and a file browser to IDLE? I mean this kind of tab, not the "\t" kind of tab. What I want is Notepad++'s "Folder as Workspace" feature and tab feature in IDLE. How can I get that?


The IDLEx extension provides tabbed editor windows with drag'n'drop reordering, and works with both 2.7 and 3.x Python. There are quite a few file managers for Python (and another), depending on your OS and desktop.
