    What is your choice for Python?

    I kind like how PyCharm looks but it's ~100euros and I'm just learning Python and I don't wan't to spend money for this. Is there anything similar for free?

    JetBrains products are awesome and will increase your productivity. So, until you can afford them, here are 2 options:

    a) Use the EAP version. This is their bleeding edge version and it's free. Only drawback is that it expires after a period of time and you need to download the newest one.

    b) There are valid keys floating around in the usual places if you want to go that route.

    +1 for Jetbrains

    I use IntelliJ IDEA. There's a free version but the enterprise version was the best $ 200 I ever spent.

    Well now I tryed SublimeText 3 with aditional packages for Python and it seem not bad but I think I will try PyCharm.

    This EAP build is valid until January 12th, 2015.

    So I think we are left with a plan B

    Ive always been a fan of PyScripter. It's only drawback is that it's only officially supported on windows.

    Wing IDE is the best, in my opinion. There's a free version, but the paid is totally worth the price (if you value productivity).

    I don't know why but I really hate all python IDE's , for me it's just a big headache.

    I use Sublime Text 2 (too lazy to switch to 3 right now :p) for just about everything (and nano over ssh but there are addons to auto-sync files over ssh if you need them) + a build system for compiled languages (Makefile that don't provide one by default)
    I used to have a console addon for it and define custom build systems but now I just have a terminal window on the side :)

    i always go with IntelliJ stuff. I even use AppCode instead of xCode because xcode slows me the hell down

    I vouch for IntelliJ as well. I've used it for Java, Python, Ruby, PHP and NodeJS. It's great for all of them

    PyCharm is great! It was really easy to switch from Android Studio to Pycharm for me! :)
