Python IDE

P: n/a
Hi,

I have recently moved from Windows XP to Ubuntu Gutsy.

I need a Python IDE and debugger, but have yet to find one as good as
Pyscripter for Windows. Can anyone recommend anything? What are you all
using?

Coming from a Visual Studio background, editing text files and using the
terminal to execute them offends my sensibilities :)

Thanks

I use Eric. Works very well for me.

I use vim on both Windows XP and Debian, but I used to use Komodo for
big projects.

Try the free trial of Komodo

http://www.activestate.com/Products/komodo_ide/

It has what you want, and it comes with licenses for both Windows and
Linux.

Wingware IDE 101, Ubuntu package at http://wingware.com/downloads. I
love it; great for teaching/learning, built-in shell, run programs from
within the environment.

This is a discussion on the Ubuntu forums-something like 51 pages
worth. Even though you are using Gutsy, you want to take a look at
KDevelop. It will install without problems even though it is KDE. A
lot of people use Geany or Eclipse also. Anyway, you can page through
as much of this thread as you like.

SPE is developped on and works well with Ubuntu Gutsy. It includes a
debugger and gui builers. Get it from subversion:

I'm not sure we're all using the same solutions. As far as I'm
concerned, it's emacs, which is just *great* when it comes to Python
programming.
Coming from a Visual Studio background,
Yuck. Sorry...

Probably because you don't quite get yet the difference between a
unix-like command line interface and what one can get with Windows.

eclipse + pydev plugin will be a good choice.

I had problems installing pydev because of mylin/mylar. These forums
had the same issue a few days ago, see
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....394feeada558fd

I was considering eclipse because I believe that eclipse gives good
refactoring support. [And a client wanted it!]
But then I found that eclipse uses pydev for python. And python uses
bicycle repair man -- which is what emacs uses for refactoring! So
might as well stay with emacs.

To substantiate what Bruno says:
The USP of python is that its an interpreter -- you can learn python
by playing around without an elaborate compile-link-test-edit cycle.
The USP of emacs (in this context) is its support for inferior
interpreters along with good editing support.
Hence the combo is quite hard to beat.

Eric4 is and excellent graphical IDE with built-in debugger, profiler,
project management, a RAD Qt4 builder (Qt designer), and all sorts of
other goodies.

http://www.die-offenbachs.de/eric/index.html

IMO, it's the way to go for Python development.
And since I prefer KDE (Kubuntu) over Gnome (Ubuntu) there's an even
greater attraction! Gotta love KDE.
