I use scite as my main text editor. It highlights Python syntax nicely, and
has code-completion support. Well not as powerful as Eclipse-PyDev pair but
it works :) And yes PyDev doesn't have IPython integration either.
Eclipse-PyDev is also slow to me, (loading takes lots of time :)) and shell
integration not as easy as in IPy. I am looking forward to pydee developer's
to bring IPython functionality into their development environment.

Besides, PyScripter, there is also Eric4 as a free IDE for Python, but again
no IPython.

So far, IPython-Scite is the fastest that I can build my programs.
Experiment in Ipython and build pieces in Scite. I would like to know what
others use in this respect?
