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 organizes imports well and does a good job presenting different programming languages.
  • Eclipse auto formats source code allowing customization and increased readability.
  • Eclipse reports errors automatically to users rather than logging it to the console.
  • Eclipse has coding shortcuts and auto-correction features allowing faster software development.

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

  • While the DB integration is broad (many connectors) it isn't particularly deep. So if you need to do serious DB work on (for example) SQL Server, it is sometimes necessary to go directly to the SQL Server Studio. But for general access and manipulation, it is ok.
  • The syntax formatting is sometimes painful to set up and doesn't always support things well. For example, it doesn't effectively support SCSS.
  • Using it for remote debugging in a VM works pretty well, but it is difficult to set up and there is no documentation I could find to really explain how to do it. When remote debugging, the editor does not necessarily integrate the remote context. So, for example, things like Pylint don't always find the libraries in the VM and display spurious errors.
  • The debugging console is not the default, and my choice is never remembered, so every time I restart my program, it's a dialog and several clicks to get it back. The debugging console has the same contextual problems with remote debugging that the editor does.

PyCharm

  • Copy-paste does not work correctly. The default printing is in the form of Insert. I always need to press the enter button to come out of the insert mode and also have to right-click and select copy or paste instead of default CNTRL c and CNTRL V. It is working good for some others in the team, and I am not able to fix this.
  • Too much of underlining the code considering negligible errors make the code look bad.
  • Auto suggestions sometimes does not work as expected.

I love this product, what makes it one of the best tool out in the market is its ability to function with a wide range of languages.The online community support is superb, so you are never stuck on an issue.The customization is endless, you can keep adding plugins or jars for more functionalities as per your requirements.It's Free !!!

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.

I gave this rating because Eclipse is an open-source free IDE therefore no support system is available as far as I know. I have to go through other sources to solve my problem which is very tough and annoying. So if you are using Eclipse then you are on your own, as a student, it is not a big issue for me but for developers it is a need.

I rate 10/10 because I have never needed a direct customer support from the JetBrains so far. Whenever and for whatever kind of problems I came across, I have been able to resolve it within the internet community, simply by Googling because turns out most of the time, it was me who lacked the proper information to use the IDE or simply make the proper configuration. I have never came across a bug in PyCharm either so it deserves 10/10 for overall support

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

I've used Sublime, VSCode, Wing IDE, Visual Studio, IntelliJ, WebStorm. For Java development, Intellij is best - being built by the same company as PyCharm it provides a helpful familiarity. The same can be said for WebStorm, although more lightweight IDEs are usually preferred, especially if we like having the team on the same IDE. Visual Studio is far too bulky and cumbersome. Sublime and VSCode are great when I project involve multiple languages.

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.
Richard Molina | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
