is the best
. Give it a try, you'll love it
Emacs may be the best, but it has one !@#$%^ of a learning curve, which is why I'm hesitant to use it. Once I get around to switching to Linux, though, that will probably be what I'm going to use.
<sidenote type="rant"> I occasionally use IdleX, but it's butt-ugly, if only because Windows has a terrible
default GUI configuration. (It does work well for hack work, but not much else.) I used to use Eclipse, but it tries to shove everything into a project, which I can't stand, since most of my work is simple hackwork. Ninja has a few problems in it that will bug me into eternity (like reading everything
for suggestions after dots, and suggesting on dots in strings), and PyCharm is way too big. I couldn't figure out how on Earth to install Spyder (or Eric, but that's just because I can't figure out how to uninstall Python 2). I had a bit of trouble configuring Geany, but that's Windows' fault, so I'll chalk it up in my Linux wishlist.
I am in between IDE's. I want one about the power of Eclipse, but without the stupid project system (or at least making it optional). As mentioned before, I will definitely look into Emacs, but for now, it's a bit too large an investment of my time to learn at the moment.
Could somebody help me out on this? Thanks. </sidenote>
