I'm preparing a new diskimage for a WinXP-based computer lab and
deciding the editor or IDE I'll use to teach Python this year.
I always include my preference, Vim, but typically my students have
used either Textpad or IDLE. Although I like Textpad, I want my lab
to be as free as possible so I'm leaning towards SciTE.
What are your experiences with editors / IDEs and Python? I've used
Eclipse with Java, how is the PyDev plugin? Is there a good editor
with method completion and collapsible codeblocks?
Flexibility is valuable, because they'll also be using this editor for
XHTML / CSS but Python is the most demanding unit.
