Still learning the Python thing. From David Mertz’s Charming Python articles, I get this article about Python IDE’s. In summary he says that if you can live with Jython, you can be happy with JEdit. Now if only I can get the debugger to work!
You might want to try eclipse as an IDE. There’s a really good article here about setting up the pyDev plug-in and getting it all going. There’s also an eclipse plugin for Jython.
Sorry, that didn’t quite work. The article is here:
Truthfully, I find that the installation of eclipse is more trouble than it’s worth. There are always esoteric bugs popping up. However, I’ll try it again with the most recent build just to make sure they haven’t become more user friendly. But thanks for the article!
Ok, eclipse doesn’t look too bad. (I tried the sample python project). After doing some baby practices, I might upgrade to that. rj
Eclipse is really great. But I wouldn’t say that PyDev is the best Eclipse plugin for Python. I’d recommend xored’s TruStudio, it is made by high-quality professionals and seems to be the greatest Python IDE for now.
