Debugging, code execution, package installation, standard following, and giving hints for better and more efficient code. All of these are my observations and differences between the two.

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.

I've used IntelliJ with Python extensions in past for working in Python but it's not best suited for that it doesn't give all the flexibility for Python projects like auto-indentation for Python code. Its paid version is a bit cheaper than IntelliJ. PyCharm offers integration of fancy things like Jupyter notebook, Docker, Conda which are really great features.

Pycharm works great for multi-file projects that span across directories thanks to its intuitive UI and easy navigation. It has many integrated features like built-in support for github etc. that let users do multiple related tasks from within the IDE itself. This acts as a huge time saver and results in quick development.

  1. Editors like Sublime and VS Code are light weight and many addons are community developed. They are general purpose unlike PyCharm
  2. IntelliJ is useful for JVM based developed including Scala
  3. Eclipse is popular for Java development

PyCharm is the only Python IDE I've used - all my prior experience was with text editors like Sublime, Notepad++, Atom, etc. The only other IDE I've used is RStudio, which has been fairly limited to small, individual projects. PyCharm's capabilities, stability, integration/packages, and code assistance all make it an excellent decision for Python development. It integrates with most common databases, which in turn makes working with big data sets much easier/straightforward within the development console. Definitely the industry standard as an IDE for Python dev.

Other options we have used are Wing IDE, Pyscriptor, and PyDev. They all are great options but I would recommend them for more advanced users that are not necessarily just trying to learn the language.

Eclipse is one of the commonly used alternative IDEs for Python programming language. It's a matter of preference whether to choose PyCharm or Eclipse. However, there is also an IDE called Spyder which is, for example, distributed along with the Anaconda Environment. It enables users to run code by chunks. Its environment also resembles that of RStudio. So, if one has been working with R most of the time, then using Spyder is pretty much intuitive, which, one the other hand, cannot be said regarding PyCharm.

PyCharm was selected due to it's first class treatment of Python. Visual Studio is more general "Do everything" IDE which contains a lot of features our team didn't need. PyCharm strikes the balance of power and complexity.

I needed a Python dedicated solution Pycharm is the best suited, giving no hassle in setting up and providing an off the shelf solution for python development. Using Eclipse is cumbersome, some additional plugins must be installed and configured

I used to use Enthought Canopy, but I prefer Pycharm. I like the appearance of Pycharm much more, and I personally feel that it is more intuitive than Enthought Canopy. Plus, I have had great experiences with the JetBrains support team. When I had issues with installation, I received a response to my email within a day.

There isn't a ton of great competition for PyCharm, aside from text editors. Atom came closest to functionality but required a lot of plugins to be added, and it's not stable when interacting with massive data frames. A full Python IDE with commercial support was what we needed, and most of the tools out there couldn't offer a good experience, good support, or a well-made tool.

What differentiates PyCharm from other products is that it is built for a particular language (Python) and works great while doing it, without losing efficiency with the rest of languages. It's simple, easy to use, fast and efficient, what else could you need?

Because PyCharm was designed specifically for Python Development, I felt it had the most to offer over the others that I tried. A more experienced Dev might have no problem using NotePad++ or TextWrangler to develop a Python program, but for my needs as somewhat of a beginner, I felt like PyCharm was the best fit, especially for debugging my very buggy code.

  • PyDEv, Spyder and Sublime Text
PyCharm, for me, works best out of all IDEs I have tested. Sublime Text is great but to add debugging, etc., you need additional tools or add-ons. For me, it was a long search and I kept coming back to PyCharm because of its feature set, GUI, and overall usability.

There are many other good editors are there in market but PyCharm has great support for Python and Python frameworks because its designed for Python.
