alternative to eclipse [ python ide AND cvs ]

P: n/a
Hi,

Eclipse is just not really working on linux 64 bit
(I tried ubuntu and centos, it is freesing and crashing
and extremly slow)

I use eclipse for python and cvs, what is "the" good alternative ?

thanks

Well, basically any editor that features plugins IMO. Although this
sounds much like a "which editor is the best?" question (what will
enrage us even more than non-ASCII identifiers <wink>), I'd suggest Vim.

It is available at almost all platforms I guess (linux 64 bit should be
*no* problem at all). You can make it match your personal editing
preferences (I recently got in touch with the `:map` command --
wonderful one), extend it (there are lots of plugins as for example
snippetsEmu that allows some Textmate-like autocompletion) and let it
work with CVS (never tried it but a `search for CVS`_ yields dozens of
results).

Ah -- and it works with python very well. Lots of plugins again, good
highlighting, indentation support, built-in python shell (when compiled
with +python).
(If you're going to give it a try, put something like ``autocmd FileType
python map <F5:w<CR>:!python "%"<CR>`` into your .vimrc to get the
IDE-feeling (F5 for write+execute) back in.)

I have had very few problems with eclipse on ubuntu with pydev
installed. Is it still running under the gnu jvm, not the sun one? It
was crashing on me until I changed them around, detials about changing
it around on ubuntu anyway

The IDE which embeds Vim is PIDA: http://www.pida.co.uk/. Looks promising.

Fond of Komodo. Seems to run most of my python programming tasks. Has
breakpoints/debugging, introspection, projects and the professional
version supports CVS. The only issue I have is that they
(ActiveState.com) just raised the price of the personal IDE way too
high. I'll be using my older version (3.1) for a while. If I used it at
work, I'd certainly have my boss splurge the 200 odd dollar price. But,
in their favor, they have a editor version for free. I 'think' it
doesn't have the damn fine debugging or CVS feature though.
