Programming in Python

Hi all,

I'd like to know what you people from Linux world use to program in
Python. I'm new to Python and I don't know if [X]Emacs is the One Editor
for Python (also!) or if there is a nice IDE to program in Python.

Best regards,

There are lots. I personally use gvim [1]. A small Google search revealed
this site which may help you further:

Others have posted links to good editor lists. From those lists, my
personal favorite is Jed, if I am using the console. If I am in a GUI
environment, I like to use Kate (part of KDE).

For Quick&Dirty, I tend to just invoke Idle.

For more complex stuff, gvim invoked from a console lets me use the
console for running while the editor has its own window. The advantage
of the console/gvim pair is that I can fiddle with data/scratch files
directly.

I'd recommend ipython + emacs. Apart from the fact that emacs is simply the
most powerful general purpose editor, the python support is also pretty good
(apart from editing support (such as block shifting commands) there is a good
integration with an interactive ipython session, so not only do you get
ipython's readable tracebacks but you can also easily jump to the actual
files/line where the problem occured etc.). Also try @pdb on.
