Python scientific libs are immensily popular for the last decade or so. However googling and "melping" for its emacs minor-modes reveals nothing. Basically I need just syntax highlighting. Do you happen to know any efforts in this direction?

    Uhm, Python Mode? Isn't that enough? None of these libraries add any special syntax that'd need to be highlighted… – lunaryorn Jul 2 '15 at 15:16
  • Numpy, scipy, sympy and matplotlib are written in Python, if I'm not mistaken. Then python-mode would be good enough. – ReneFroger Jul 2 '15 at 15:30
  • @(lunaryorn and ReneFrogertjuh): I'd like to see wither a given function is mine or belongs to the library. – Adobe Jul 2 '15 at 17:41
  • You could always type help(some_function) into Python console. It's easy enough to figure out whether it's your own function or one you imported. Other options would be to use Ropes / Jedi to locate the source of a function. – wvxvw Jul 2 '15 at 17:50
  • @Adobe are your functions not namespaced? Are the numpy functions not namespaced? I can't see where the confusion would come from. In any case, I would highly suggest anaconda-mode, which is a superset of jedi. – PythonNut Jul 2 '15 at 19:26
