Hot subject: a good python editor and/or IDE?

Hi folks,

I am currently using Eclipse+PyDev when developping Python projects but
I lack a fast, simple editor for tiny bit of scripts. So here is my
question: what is, for you, the current best ( but still kind of light!
) Python editor/IDE ? A tiny precision, I am on Ubuntu so I am looking
for a linux compatible editor.

Cheers,

Sébastien

vim

BTW, this is an FAQ. Please look through the archives for many
threads with many, many IDEs.

Vim with SnippetsEMU works great with Python. I made a demo of this in
action here:

http://debain.org/?p=198

Installation/configuration example on Ubuntu:

---------------
$ sudo apt-get install vim

$ mkdir -p $HOME/.vim/ftplugin/

$ mkdir -p $HOME/.vim/after/ftplugin/

$ wget http://www.vim.org/scripts/download_...hp?src_id=6951 -O se.vba

$ vim se.vba
:so %
:wq

$ echo "setlocal sw=4
setlocal ts=4
noremap <buffer<LocalLeader>py o/**************<CR><CR>/<Esc>
" >~/.vim/ftplugin/python.vim

$ wget http://code.google.com/p/snippetsemu...n_snippets.vim

$ cp python_snippets.vim $HOME/.vim/after/ftplugin/

$ echo "syntax on
set sw=2
set ts=2
set nu
set nuw=3
set autoindent
set expandtab" >$HOME/.vimrc
---------------

(not tested, but it should work)

I just realized, this should be

$ sudo apt-get install vim-python

or

$ sudo apt-get install vim-full

Yeah, I know this is a FAQ, but, as you mention, there is a whole bunch
of editors, every one of them being updated constantly (+ the new ones
getting out). So I am quite sure that looking through the archives is
THE solution since it will only reflect what people thought when
question was asked. Just type "best Python editor" on Google and you
will see that almost all hits are completely out of date.
Fair enough though! ;)

A hard question to answer. Why not just use the default gnome or kde
editors?

I've invested time in learning vim which has paid off handsomely for
me.

Well, since this question pops up about once a *week* on this list,
chances are the most recent replies are not outdated. Just search this
group instead of the whole web.

Six weeks don't strike me as "completely out of date".

Are you really sure that you know the meaning of the
word "frequently"?

I spoke of this MAILING LIST'S ARCHIVES, not of some web forum
you'll get with google.

JED has a nice python mode for fast, simple editing.
