Python editor/IDE on Linux?

P: n/a
I wonder what everybody uses for Python editor/IDE on Linux?
I use PyScripter on Windows, which is very good. Not sure if
there's something handy like that on Linux. I need to do some
development work on Linux and the distro I am using is Xubuntu.

We should do a weekly poll. :) Seriously - this question is coming up
very frequently and everybody has their preference.

Large list:
http://wiki.python.org/moin/Integrat...ntEnvironments

My (current) favorite:
pida (exists as a ready package on Debian as derivates like Xubuntu)

pida because it embeds the 'vim' editor which I love and adds useful
features without really getting in my way. And it's the only IDE I found
that supports bazaar-ng (bzr) repositories.

Strange as it might be, not everybody's using the same editor.

Oh yes ? Why so ?

pida screenshots look neat. It's not in xubuntu's repository though. Not
even in universe.
I installed from the source. When running it, I get an error "Service not
found. Tried to
access non-existing service filemanager"

I wouldn't recommend PIDA to nobody except real hardcore Vim lovers. If
you don't mint occasional crashes, then PIDA might be for you, but don't
expect increased productivity, as this is an alpha-quality software and
most of expected functionality simply doesn't work as expected.

This is an ongoing project and they (community, testers, developers)
strive to make it better, but this is a completely "spare-time" project
AFAIK. Download it, install it, try to use it, report bugs and
omissions, help them make this software better. We would all profit. :)

I'll let you in on a little secret. We all use Emacs. Those who claim to
use vim are just trying to prevent you from ever becoming a successful
Python programmer, and therefore reduce competition.

I use Emacs, with Vim emulation, running with WordStar keybindings, on
a Dvorak keymapping. It took me seven years to learn how to use it,
but it was worth it. Keeps the pesky workmates from using my computer.

When the Linux distros wanted an editor, they did not choose Emacs or
emaacs vi mode.
They chose vim.

Because idle means no progress. Better use VI[M].

Yep. Emacs comes with a lot of those funny phrases. It is so good that
it even helps people using other editors to have some fun. ;-)

I use spe - it is in universe.

Has some rough edges, but in general I like it enough to recommend it.

In Linux I just use Gedit. In windows I settle for Notepad2. With
python having help built into the interpreter, anything more than line
numbering, simple syntax highlighting, and auto-indent when you hit
enter just doesn't seem necessary. Vim has b and c, but not a.

Using Kate for Python would probably be very similar to using Gedit
(from my limited experience with Kate).

I'm using Kate/KWrite quite often. Syntax highlighting and an auto
indention for Python are standard features. The only "extra" I'm using is
the word completion plug-in to spare myself too much typing and limit
typing errors in long names.

Along with the editor there's always a terminal with IPython running to
test and explore my own code and libraries.

I'm not sure of what you are numbering, but vim does have:
* Line numbering.
* Syntax highlighting.
* Auto-indenting.

In gvim you can use a mouse-1-drag to select text then mouse-2 at the
position you want to copy the text to.

I'm using WingWare's WingIDE. Visual debugger, python-scriptable,
projects, code-completion that is second-to-none (I LOVE it.). And a very
responsive support team. Yes, it's commercial, but it's cheaper than
Komodo, and works a lot better for Python.

Plus, it's written in Python, so the developers eat their own dog food.
During the development cycle for 3.0 (it's at Alpha 1 right now*), all they
used to development was the active code base.

*I'm using 3.0a1 right now for my development work, and have not had a
single crash or glitch. It's good stuff.
