CLion is best suited for day to day IDE for C and c++ programming projects. It integrates inbuilt support for GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) and works like a breeze on linux and *nix based platforms. While using this CLion IDE for different versions of projects, we faced a little difficulty to compare the differences of two versions of same file. This could be taken care of in next versions.

IDLE is a good option to run small scripts directly on the console, and that's it. It is a good exit when you don't want or need to open a proper IDE like Pycharm.

    Usability

    JetBrains

    CLion does everything I ask it to do. For me, Unreal Engine 4 compatibility was essential and Epic Game and JetBrains delivered a solid alternative to spending a huge amount of money on the "standard" IDE for game development on Windows. The user interface is sharp and modern without all of the silly frills many software suites now employ. It integrates well with source control systems we use and also works well, as expected, with other JetBrains development tools and assistants.

    The IDE Python IDLE is a good place to start as it helps you become familiar with the way Python works and understand its syntax.
    This IDE allows you to configure the environment, font, size, colors, .....
    It also looks like any simple text editor for any operating system, I work with Windows or Linux interchangeably, and you don't have to learn to use the IDE before programming.
    Once the IDE is executed you can start programming directly in it.

    Support Rating

    JetBrains

    I am giving it a 9 out of 10 because I did not even need official support from the CLion team but rather, every time I came across a problem, I have been able to solve it within the community itself. This is so precious that you don't even need the help of the program's development/support team. There's a huge community of users that backs you up.

    Python IDLE support is what the community can give you. As it is free software, it does not have support provided by the manufacturer or by third-parties.
    In any case, for most of the problems that normal users can find, the solution, or alternatives, can be found quickly online.
    As this IDE is made in Python, the support is the same group of Python developers.

    Alternatives Considered

    JetBrains

    CLion is at par when compared with many established IDEs. With lesser cost in owning this IDE to the ease of use of this IDE it can be very well chosen and opted for the main IDE with in your organization. Its plugin add on capabilities will surely help to integrate other compilers of other programming languages.

    Python IDLE is very easy to use compared to PyCharm. So for simple python scripting, Python IDLE is preferable to PyCharm, which has relatively steep learning curve. Compared to Python IDLE, PyCharm is more resource intensive, which may be worth it when comes to large projects, but PyChram does not provide any extra value for simple scripting.
