- Marilyn, Are you targeting the IDE demos for Ironport June 8 meeting?
>From: Marilyn Davis <marilyn at deliberate.com> + Tony C
>So the IDE show is up to 3->4 solid demos!
plain old emacs -> Marilyn, plain old vi (+ctags) -> JJ & Keith
Wing IDE -> Mike C, PythonWin -> TonyC
- As a sneak peek at the survey so far, to help you identify the popular
IDEs, below are the results based on 37 responses:
- interest in the IDE topic scored broadly enough:
"Very interested" 2.69/4.0 with Basic users, 2.68 with Advanced,
"Interested" 2.40 with Experts.
- ~50% of people use common text editors (emacs, vim etc.)
- 17% are in search of an IDE (me included)
- volunteers needed to deomnstrate IDLE and PyDev, they're popular!
- IDLE, PyDev, SPE are more popular with people rating their Python
proficiency as Basic.
- I guess people's preferences depend on criteria like how important
cross-platform portability is, whether you need other language support,
whether you do GUIs and which one, revision control (... a feature matrix
would be neat).
Q #11. (Optional) What is your preferred IDE?

- Mac OS X TextMate
- Mac OSX: Textmate / Windows: Notepad++
- combination of kedit, kdevelop with ipython
- I switch (often on the fly) between scite and vim. I've used SPE a little
bit but I mostly only use it as a wrapper around winpdb. I think I could
like SPE for editing. I tend to use XRCed for GUI design, I find Boa
Constructor's GUI designer a little primitive (not that XRCed is that much
- I don't use an IDE. It is not a matter of not having found one.
- I tend to use ultra edit but am experimenting with PyDev per a friends
- text editor + terminal
