What is PyDev?
PyDev is an open-source Python IDE on top of Eclipse for Python, Jython and IronPython development.
It comes with goodies such as code completion, syntax highlighting, syntax analysis, code analysis, refactor, debug, interactive console, etc.
It's also a commercial counterpart which helps supporting the development of PyDev.
