Good IDE for Python

Link to this post 28 Oct 10

Hey I was wandering what a good IDE was for python in Ubuntu, I would like it to run scripts ( .py files i think im just now learning python) directly and not use eric ( I think that is what it´s called). If you know of anything good I would love to have some suggestions.

To begin with you may use the default python IDLE or Eclipse with pydev plugin. Also you may check "SPE IDE".

If you're running KDE (e.g. Kubuntu), Kdevelop is kind of decent, too.

I prefer emacs for all my development and python is no exception. With a little bit of tweaking one can turn emacs into a powerful python IDE complete with syntax highlighting, auto completion, and more. Couple that with a split screen running a python shell and I cant imagine being any more productive. That is, unless you are an avid vim user ;)

Here are a few good tutorials to get you set up and running.
