I have been using ipython + vim for over a year now and I'm quite happy
I usually have both a vim and an ipython session running at the same
time when coding. When I want to test/debug, I close my vim session and
do the test/debug/edit cycle from within ipython. ipython has a special
command called '@edit file' which launches you $EDITOR, let you change
your code and runs the file once you exit the editor.
This plus the @pdb trick which launches pdb when an uncaught exception
is raised fullfill my needs.
Moreover, ipython has command and filename completion, shell like
commands (cd, ls, !), colorized magic help (object.method? pretty prints
Hope this helps
