I normally don't use an IDE for Python development. The majority of my day is spent inside my SciTE editor.
However, Sun recently released NetBeans IDE 6.5 for Python, and I figured I would give it a try. So far I really like it. The Python support works well. It has syntax highlighting, code complete, debugger, integrated console, etc. Overall, it is a comprehensive and nicely designed IDE.
NetBeans is a full featured development environment and supports:
The IDE is written in Java so I thought it would be dog slow, but it's pretty snappy to work with.
I've decided I will try it for a week and then decide whether to use it as my main dev environment.
Anyone else using NetBeans for Python development?
