For Python, I still prefer IDLE or PythonWin.

For other things like cmd, ini, and other text files, I use either
Notepad++ or UltraEdit.

IDLE for short scripts, PyDev under Eclipse for big Python projects,
and the Python shell for basic one-offs.

I am very noob to this Python game (though it has been around since
1995 me thinks) and currently (I was using ActivePython and then IDLE)
I have been using a combination of Notepad2 <url>http://www.flos-
freeware.ch/notepad2.html</urland the interpreter (Python 2.5) on a
Windblows X[crement]P[roblem] SP2 machine.

I like IDLE but it seems to stop working after the first few times and
I would then re-install it and it would work a few times more.
ActivePython was cool but I could not find a version of it that used
Python 2.5 (as far as I can see, it only uses 2.4)

Notepad2 allows you to launch your script directly from the editor
(just like IDLE) and has configurable code highlighting. And it is
FREE.

ActivePython is the distribution of Python. The distro includes PyWin32
(a bunch o' Windows stuff for Python). Part of that stuff is "Pythonwin"
-- the editor that you are probably referring to.

There is an ActivePython 2.5.1 now:

You should give Komodo Edit a try too:

I also use Vim (well, GVim).

The only thing I find missing is an integrated console for running
code snippets/entire scripts. The runscript plugin is OK, but lacks
interactive use. I have been thinking about some way of interacting
with a Python shell using sockets to send snippets directly to the
shell from Vim, but haven't had time to get very far.

What method of executing code snippets in a Python shell do other Vim
users use? Other than just copy/paste?

I prefer PsPad.

If you like Notepad++, PSPad might be a better choice. More intuitive.
I've used Notepad++ for a while, I really disliked the fact that every
new install my settings XML file would get overwritten, and what does
that guy have with Comic sans MS? Every default style is hard coded
into the app, to that strange oddly looking style for comments etc.

Anyway, I do not want to get too personal. PsPad is very nice, I also
use more python-like editors like SPE and UliPad.

Notepad++ :-)

And still use ConTEXT from time to time when I have big (MB) xml files
to look at.

Not vim, but good old vi so should work in vim

1. Mark the start of the fragment, for exampls ms (to mark
with label s). Labels a through z are available.
2. Move to the end of the fragment.
3. :'s,.w !python to send the fragment to the python
interpreter

Worked for me when I tried it a few minutes ago. I had never
bothered before - just copied/pasted.

Obviously, you can also mark the end, move to the start and
do something like :.,'ew !python or mark both the start and
the end, or use line numbers, or labels plus offsets, or
searches, eg :/def/;+5w !python to search forward to the
next occurrence of "def" and send that line plus the next
five to the interpreter. Whatever works for you. The abbreviate
and map commands can be used to reduce the typing if you are
fanatical.

Yes - that works nicely for code snippets in isolation. My quest for
tighter integration of the Python console/IPython and vim will have to
continue...

If you are looking for editors written in Python (that are generally
multiplatform using wxPython), there are a few listed:
http://wiki.wxpython.org/wxPythonPit_Apps .

If you are looking for editors with Python support, there is a listing
on the Python wiki: http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonEditors

I use PyPE (http://pype.sf.net) for most of my editing needs.
