If you are also using a home-level virtualenv ie. in
~/env/ then your vim instance might take crazy long time.
First things first, rope creates a
.ropeproject directory where it thinks the project root is. And it will scan every file in every sub directory. A quick and dirty solution is to create empty
.ropeproject folders lower in the
$HOME filesystem. Rope will automatically use this folder if it finds no other
.ropeproject folder at a lower level.
But, if you want a home-level
.ropeproject, then you should configure
~/.ropeproject/config.py. It is well commented, you might end with something like this:
# Custom source folders: By default rope searches the project # for finding source folders (folders that should be searched # for finding modules). You can add paths to that list. Note # that rope guesses project source folders correctly most of the # time; use this if you have any problems. # The folders should be relative to project root and use '/' for # separating folders regardless of the platform rope is running on. # 'src/my_source_folder' for instance. prefs['source_folders'] = ['env/src'] # You can extend python path for looking up modules prefs['python_path'] = '/home/jpic/env/lib/python2.7/site-packages/'
