What's The Best Editor for python

Hi,
Can one of you say to me what's the best editor for editing the python
programs ( for linux or windows ), and if you can send it to me to the
adresse Ah*******@gmail.com

Thanks

Emacs runs on both. So do Eclipe and a lot of other... What is best? The
one that solves your problems without getting in your way.

Hmmm...it's been almost a week since this topic came up on
the list. Good to see the topic is undead :) For plenty of
reading, check out the list archives:

Pretty much any text editor will do. If you're developing
on both Linux and Windows, it's an advantage to have an
editor that you can use on both. I happen to use vim/vi
which is available pretty much wherever you go. About the
same sorta thing can be said for emacs, though I'm not a
user, so I can't comment on it. I'll grant that vi/vim has
a learning curve like a brick wall, but once you're over the
initial learning hurdle, it reaps heaps of rewards.

Check out http://www.python.org/moin/PythonEditors

Try 'em out and see what *you* like. In a pinch, there's
always ed:

Or edlin if you're on Dos/Win32 :) Though I think in such
an event on Dos/Win32, I'd almost rather use "copy con" as
my editor...

Why donīt you try the editor wich comes with Pythoncard.
Or Notepad++ Thanks

Food for thought... I admit it would be best if you could use the same
editor for both *nix and Windows -- in that case, I'd say Scite would
be best as it is almost identical in both environments. However, my own
personal favorites are: Crimson Editor for Windows and Kate for Linux.
Yes, I know... strange choices (especially Kate) but they both do what
I need them to do. :-)

I agree, Kate is a great linux editor!

On windows, I'd have to say notepad2- kate for windows

just to bloat this thread some more:

Am I the only one using jEdit?
(really, I never see it mentioned anywhere ...)

Been using PyDev plugin for Eclipse for a week now... works pretty
good, and integrates well with PyLint.

Has some context-sensitive help, but not much. I wonder if writing a
script to convert Python HTML docs to Javadoc format would help?
Hmmmm.... maybe I'll ask.

Mar 24 '06 #9
Was actually going to throw in jEdit for the category of what's good on
both platforms... For someone who despises Java, I actually like it.

Well, Notepad might be a bare-bones. I enjoy using UltraEdit, though
not UEStudio (the IDE version). You can include a "wordfile" to get
Python syntax recognition. Tools are user configurable globally or by
project - my first three global tools are Check (with pychecker), Test
and Run

What may be "best" for me, may not necessarily work for you nor anybody
else. Personally, I like to use Kate, Pico, or Joe on Linux, and
Notepad2 or IDLE editor for Windows.

Just because nobody has mentioned them so far:

- SciTe is a perfect editor for Pyhton on Win and Linx
- PyScripter is a wonderful IDE (but only on Win)
- DrPython is a nice platform independent editor/mini-IDE

There is no one editor that could be called the best one, but there are
many which are far better suited for Python than the simple standard
text editors (Notepad & Co).

Maybe you prefer to have one editor that suits all your programming and
typing needs (not only Python), so you don't have to use different
editors Python, HTML, XML, config files etc. SciTe performs very well
here, and of course also Emacs...

The Zeus for Windows IDE has support for Python:

http://www.zeusedit.com/python.html

It does Python code folding, smart indenting and syntax
highlighting. It also has features like project/workspace
mangement, ftp editing and class browsing etc.

You can even write Zeus macros in Python.

If you want something that won't get in your way, you should really
use /bin/ed. It's probably simpler to use then searching the archives.
/bin/ed will also run in cygwin for windows.

For myself, I use kdevelop, KDE's development environment, it handles a
multitude of languages very well, and python is one of them. It has
solid project management, and a slew of other features. If you are
looking for something solid, I would go with kdevelop.

The best editor is the one you like best.

I'm a vim user with taglist--I'm not fully happy with how ctags does
Python, but it's more than Good Enough.

But editors are religious, and not worth arguing about, generally.
