Likelihood to Recommend

Eclipse

Eclipse is recommended for enabling the user community to be self-reliant in scenarios where the mode of operation demands agile, on the fly accurate reporting, such as during month ends for reconciliation purposes. The urgency and sensitivity of such situations result in a lot of stress with quick turnaround times but with the ability of Eclipse and Hana views, the reliance on IT could be minimized. Also, IT could leverage the power of Eclipse to develop Hana views without having to do the traditional route of ABAP developments. It might be less appropriate for situations where the agile and dynamic nature of the operations is not a necessity.

PyCharm

  • When Python is the main language of choice, an IDE like PyCharm is a great choice
  • Web development and server development (services) development is also very well supported
  • React programming needs some additional assistance as JSX is a new file format which mixes HTML as a JS string. That is amazingly integrated as well
  • However, this IDE has heavy memory requirements and needs a good machine

Pros

Eclipse

  • Eclipse is very powerful and has a wide range of plugins that can be used to customize it and add additional functionality. For example, you can write code in a wide variety of languages, debug your code, commit it to your code repository, and manage your database schema and data all without ever leaving Eclipse.
  • As open-source software, it's available for free.
  • It has (or had) a very large user base so if you ever encountered issues, it's likely you're not the only one and you can find help from someone else who's experienced the same issue.
  • It runs on top of Java so it's available on almost any platform.

PyCharm

  • Customizable interface: layout, color scheme, hot keys, etc may all be individually tailored to a user.
  • Platform intelligence: debugging, code analysis, dependency resolution, and auto completion make the PyCharm IDE efficient and a pleasure to use
  • Support / tutorials guide the user through learning the different capabilities (this was a big deal for me when I switched to using Python / PyCharm after coding in a text editor and R Studio)

Cons

Eclipse

  • Eclipse has so many windows that it took me years before I wasn't overwhelmed by them. When I first started using Eclipse in 2006 I couldn't stand it.
  • The learning curve is very steep. There are a hundred little tricks you have to learn.
  • Sometimes Eclipse can get into a bad state and you have to clear the caches and restart or go through elaborate build-clean-build processes to fix it.
  • Eclipse can run very slowly.
  • Eclipse is notoriously bloated with unnecessary features that most of us will never use.

PyCharm

  • Pycharm is expensive if you cannot get a license through work (although you can get a lightweight version for free)
  • When starting up Pycharm, it can take a while to load (up to a minute or more), which is somewhat annoying.
  • The initial setup can take a little while, and I found that customizing the appearance of PyCharm was very cumbersome.

Basic functionality is pretty straight-forward and easy to use. But more advanced features can be tricky to figure out if you're not used to the way Eclipse works. Many times things are hidden behind some obscure setting or within some new panel or view that must be enabled or switched to.

It's ease of use, popularity and great support from the Eclipse community user. It's code assistance and ease of use makes it widely used by all small, medium & large organizations. It works well for deploying applications on various vendors like Oracle Bea Weblogic server, IBM's application server, Tomcat and various other third party application servers.

Pycharm's website has many tutorial videos that walk you through entire setup and makes you comfortabe by showing various scenarios that any developer will encounter. Their forums are active and so is their customer support. There is an active user-base and many features are added as it in constant development and upgradation.

Alternatives Considered

Eclipse

They are very similar but eclipse has greater availability of plugins that allow you to achieve much more satisfactory results, in the products that are developed, the basic configurations are a bit more difficult than in NetBeans but they are much more specific and much more complete, which allows having a little more control over the ide, eclipse is also a little less heavy than NetBeans.For example, in my case I started to work with eclipse, before working with other IDE's and I found it quite comfortable and intuitive, at first it scares the amount of options you have but once you get used to it it is very simple, it has a learning curve very short what if you have already worked with other IDE's is very easy to grasp the trick.

PyCharm

Compared to bare bones editors like Sublime and Notepad++, Pycharm is a full-service IDE with all the bells and whistles that makes python coding easy and convenient. There is no need to use the terminal or Mac finder to navigate to different files or use CMD+F to find where a function is defined. All this can be done from within PyCharm which saves time.

Return on Investment

Eclipse

  • This development environment offers the possibility of improving the productivity time of work teams by supporting the integration of large architectures.
  • It drives constant change and evolution in work teams thanks to its constant versioning.
  • It works well enough to develop continuous server client integrations, based on solid or any other programming principle.

PyCharm

  • Definitely improves developer productivity.
  • Fixing syntax errors is super easy and fast which is normally difficult in languages like Python.
  • It provides the option to read the documentation within IDE itself which is great and saves a lot of time rather than googling things.
  • No negative impacts.
