What's the best IDE?

Recently I've had some problems with PythonWin when I switched to
Py2.5, tooka long hiatus, and came back. So now I'm without my god sent
helper, and I'm looking for a cool replacement, or some advocation to
reinstall/setup PyWin. But the Python website's list is irrefutably
long. It would take a month or two to test all of those products. So
I'm looking for experienced advocates.

What's your favorite IDE?
What do you like about it?
It would be fine for a begginer, right?

I don't really have a good answer here, but maybe a data point. I got
tired of waiting for ActiveState to put out a Python 2.5 and installed
the one from python.org instead, which doesn't include PythonWin. I
figured that I should take the opportunity to try out Komodo, which I'd
heard was pretty good. I downloaded the alpha and used it for about
half a month. Komodo's interface is pretty good, and when you're
writing code in a module, the auto-completion is great, but there's no
auto-completion at the interactive prompt. I use the interactive prompt
heavily, so that was pretty much the end of it for me. I downloaded the
pywin32 module and got my PythonWin back. =)

emacs
What do you like about it?
1. It's so complicated and ugly that just using it is enough to makes
you look like a seasonned pro.
2. It gives me a reason to engage in holy wars with vim users.

Certainly not.

But you may want to look for other advices:

I perform python development for cross platform firmware integration
and analysis on a daily basis and the IDE I use and recommend is Komodo
from ActiveState. Our worldwide development group (30) has recently all
purchased the professional version as it integrates with several
version control systems, has a built-in python debugger, a
mutli-language/package GUI builder, and in-line code
lookup/auto-complete functionality. There are a few nice-to-haves which
aren't available such as: C (++, # or otherwise) auto-complete and
alternate py-documentation viewer but the pros far outweighed the cons
for our development team.

Komodo sounds alright. I don't use the interactive promt much anyway, I
usually just copy and past stuff from my real code to see if it works.

Any more advocates?
I forgot to mention that auto-completion is my favorite little helper.
Any IDEs of astronomical proportions in relation to ease of use to
auto-completion?

Also:
Links to what you suggest?

Oct 25 '06 #5
PS: Search engine . . . I knew this had probably come up very often,
but I get it's pretty silly of me that I didn't utilize this.

And while I was posting another mark for Komodo came. Nice, is it.

It seems like the holy wars are pretty. We disciples of Vim and
Emacs are now content merely being holier than all he others.

Actually, I'm not sure there's been a good Emacs VS Vim holy war
in years. So... ya know what's I find to be shamefully hatefully
orthodox? Believing in the 'meta' key, when it's clearly just
Alt. Those same people often hold to the heresy that 'to fill'
means 'to wrap'. They believe that modes exist for different
'languages', and moreover, that there's more than just the
trinity of INSERT, EDIT and COMMAND-LINE.

After researching Komodo, I found it's not free. The only funds I have
are a college fund, and I can't start diping into that until I'm going
to college. Any free AND good IDEs?

I think most of wxPython IDE are good. I prefer UliPad, because I'm
the author of it, you can find the link from my signature. It's cross
platform, and many features. It has not embed debuger in it now, so
you can use winpdb to debug your program. It support auco-complete in
editing and also provide a shell window also support auto-complete.
And the auco-complete in editing is more powerful.

Other good wxPython IDE should be SPE, drPython, PyPE, etc.

There is a list at http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonEditors
Or use Google Groups to search this group for "best IDE" - once a
month someone comes and ask that same question again and again so
you'll find plenty of responses...

Please consider trying Python with a powerful editor, instead of a
just-for-Python environment. Knowing a powerful editor is a far better
investment than a complex tool for a single purpose.

What's your favorite IDE?
Vim
What do you like about it?
If you are a very good typist you can rock with Vim. Vi and variants
are on _every_ Unix system. It's highly configurable, syntax
highlighting, supports scripting with Python.
It would be fine for a begginer, right?
Not really, you'll be frustrated for about a week, you'll be productive
after that, from then on you'll keep on learning new things all the
time.

Amen.

As an alternative to the IDE straight-jacket you might consider going the
unit-testing/'live code' route, which obviates the need for a debugger and
other clutter found in all of the IDEs i've seen. Also, you might think
about writing your own unit-tester. It's not difficult in python and will
give you a setup tailored to your own tastes. But whatever you do, keep
things simple and light.

That's surely an idea, but I'm not to that point yet. Right not I'm
struggling to understand a text adventure, and because I wanted to try
it my own at it (before using a tutorial), this has revieled I no
nothing about parsing or classes. Both are required to make an IDE I
believe.

As for UliPad . . . AWSOME! I love it, more than WinPy even . . . and I
can't get WinPy to work at the moment, but I think I just need to
reinstall Python2.5. Although customizing your syntax highlighting is a
little difficult. I think it's really cool, and is so far at the top of
my list, as I have yet to try Vim - maybe I'll try tomarrow.

You'll be frustrated for at least two weeks. But you'll use it forever
for everything from writing to programming, so who cares?

Auto completion is called omni completion in VIM

type ':h new-omni-completion' at the command line after two weeks of
frustration.

You can become proficient enough for basic editing in about 20
minutes with the built-in tutorial.

Getting it to work seemlessly with Python code will take
considerably longer.

Since you mentioned it, I have a question that searching around and
poking around has not solved for me, yet.

Do you have auto-completion working with your setup? It does not seem
to work at all for me. I have read through the configuration help, and
there are no firewalls on my system at all, and everything else works
save for auto-completion, which I have had to disable. If left enabled,
even with low timeouts, I have to kill Eclipse and start it again. :-/

Other than that, I find that it is absolutely wonderful. I have used
Eclipse in the past for PHP based projects, and intend on using it for
Java projects in the future (my school has Java classes in its
curriculum instead of C classes... joy).

Yep. Still does it. And the kicker is, that it does it with things
that it shouldn't have to wonder terribly much about -- classes that I
have custom-built, where it can easily find the available methods and
the like. *shrugs*

As others said, you'll learn new stuff every day. I never knew about
this omni-completion thing until today, and I'm using VIM almost every
day.

Go figure.

Once you generate a tags file, navigation becomes easy. I never managed
to invoke Python inside VIM as a "compiler" tho. The fact that you can
create scripts for VIM in Python is also a plus.

It does just about everything. It can edit just about every kind of

Probably not. I think you have to spend enough time with environments
that don't let you integrate everything into the editor before you can
really understand why people love emacs (and vi) so much.

Actually, I've read similar things before and I don't quite get it. I
guess all of us are Emacs begginers the first time we try emacs.
Actually, I started using Emacs about 1 month after installing Linux;
what hooked me was the possibility of editing code AND submit it to an
inferior process, just like that (this I experienced first with R, but
of course you can do the same with Python) and using the same
environment for all of my editing and programming tasks.

I've used Emacs for a long time, but I think I might be going back to
Vim 7.0 now that they improved the scripting functionality with *real*
arrays and dicts. In some respects, this is now better than in Emacs,
where the hash functionality is...well...cumbersome at best.

Main reason would be that Vim is so much easier to customize and find
things in than Emacs. I long time ago, I actually submitted a bug
report for the perl plugin I hate to appeal to popularity, but Vim's
greater popularity also contributes to higher quality in a number of
cases: consider Ruby support for instance. Light years ahead of what
Emacs has.

vimshell is a (nearly) full-blown terminal emulator facility for Vim

Yes, I've read that, and I see that point. And that you can do
customization using Python. I've actually been tempted by Vim since I

Thanks for this link! It looks really interesting. I'll try to give it
a try ASAP.
One question, though: can you "send" a block of code to a Python shell
running in vimshell? (somehow like you can do in Emacs)?

I've been writing all my extensions in python rather than vimscript for
several releases (occasionally it requires some elbow grease, e.g. I
submitted the fixes to let the python interface call functions
returning vim lists/dicts).

I'd guess emacs is at least a base-10 order of magnitude more popular
than vim for real development (excluding simple "it's already
installed" basic sysadmin stuff); emacs passed vi c. 1990 and hasn't
looked back.

I say that as a hardcore vim user--getting used to modality really
isn't for everyone, though once you do the payoff is high.

Ben, as an Emacs guy tempted by Vim I'd definitely like to know what
you find annoying about python-mode, and how Vim does not annoy you
here. If this answer might risk leading the thread somewhere we don't
want, I'd anyway by very interested in a private email.
