Comparing Python IDEs



A number of useful development environments are available for Python in Linux. We’ll show you around some popular Python IDEs that are more than just text editors.

What can you do with an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that you can’t do with a text editor? Vi, Emacs, Gedit, and Kate all offer features such as syntax highlighting and code folding for all major programming languages. A good IDE, on the other hand, adds features such as debugging and project management.
