Best Python IDE other Than Netbeans and Eclipse

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I'm not a fan of both IDEs because they are slow and hangs at times. What other IDE can you suggest I will use to develop Python programs?

Best Python IDE other Than Netbeans and Eclipse


Hello Johan,

With regards to Power capabilities and features of Netbeans and Eclipse, I definitely agree with you. Both of them are based on Java which makes them pretty much dependent and heavy on resources. This often results in slowdowns and freezing at least on some systems.

Considered to be latest contender, Ninja IDE  has been getting serious positive responses and attention from many Python programmers.  The current version of same is 1.1 and version 2.0 is said to be in the beta stages.  It would  be suggested that you give a shot and see if it works well for you.

One more suggestion would be in using  a simple text editor instead of  using an IDE. Considered as a great text editor, Notepad++ has been loaded with lot of syntax highlighting  capabilities and support provided the work is done on Windows. In case the work is done on  Linux, the suggestion would be to make use of Gedit. It is actually pretty powerful and capable with a few tweaks. Please check below link on how to improve  Gedit.

Hope this helps!
