PyCharm is good for debugging, but it is heavy when it starts to load. Some times even it can take 3-4 minutes to be loaded. Overall, I think this is a powerful IDE with a wide variety of useful tools.

PyCharm is great for software development in Python, whether it's a Web/Django application or a machine learning model development/deployment. It has many awesome extra features such as auto code completion, data type illustration, git visualization, package management (pip), visualization and version management of code history. It's highly flexible in customization, too. For example, once as I was using NumPy, it recommended me to allow the scientific mode so it is as if PyCharm actually understands your needs and makes great recommendations. It has nice shortcuts, for example, CTRL + Q explains the pointed function. It contains a lot of plugins and themes, integrated web framework Django, interactive console and virtual environment. It's also great for students since PyCharm provides 1 year of student license for them.

  • Perfect Integration development environment tool for python as the language
  • The best tool for robotic framework automation.
  • Bash and markdown support is also available.
  • PyCharm helps a lot with version control. The version control helps in Progressively developing the code while committing it.
  • Supports most of the popular web technologies
  • Scenarios where it is less appropriate:
  • Copy-paste does not work and makes it a problem.
  • More resource and memory usage

Fast development due to a lot of shortcuts. It can make life easy for a programmer. It can have issues with opening multiple PyCharm apps as it takes a lot of your ram memory.

Just as for a new intern, or for the experienced pro, this IDE is well suited for most programmers. With high customization options, or well designed default configurations, PyCharm is a must and a powerful tool if used right.

When I need to change something punctual I prefer to open the file in a text editor since the IDE is very heavy and to execute it would take some time. It is very suitable for correcting multiple files at the same time using the find and replace function on files. And do all version control without having to go to terminals or run external applications.

PyCharm - the best Python IDE out there.

Likelihood to Recommend

Excellent for big data projects because it supports some of the widely used scientific libraries for Python — NumPy, Anaconda and Metplotlib.
PyCharm makes it easier for programmers to write various web applications in Python supporting widely used web technologies like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.
Debugging of Python scripts on PyCharm is a bit cumbersome especially when there are a lot of lines of code.

For ML or data munging prototyping or even application development, PyCharm is my go-to IDE. It would be less appropriate for the development of other languages like TypeScript or node. Some users may prefer a more lightweight IDE.

Best Python IDE

Likelihood to Recommend

For Python developers PyCharm is the best option, it is an IDE that integrates all the needs for projects of various frameworks. You have handy features to send commands to the terminal, access its database (view and make changes), run your code and debug simply. But it is an IDE that requires a lot of RAM, besides for simpler tasks like scripts it is better to use IDLE.

It is very well suited for Python projects with multiple files and folders, and it has a built-in project explorer and the whole environment is project oriented. It is not recommended for single file projects due to the project setup overhead.

Integrated development environment for Python development

Likelihood to Recommend

PyCharm is a great tool that should be used when writing and debugging Python programs. It has great package management capabilities, but when you have to multiple virtual environments, it gets slightly complicated at times. I think this is a great integrated development environment that should serve well for local development and then as a facet to push changes to staging and production environments.

Full service python IDE that makes python coding easier

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User

Likelihood to Recommend

It is well suited for writing Python code and maintaining coding standards by sharing code style settings, which is something that isn't so easy in Sublimetext. The embedded terminal ensures that you don't need to switch windows to run your scripts. Very easy to navigate to different files, search in code throughout the project, find and replace, navigate to function definitions, etc. It does, however, eat up a lot of resources and support for other languages (SQL, Javascript) is limited.

I think it's well suited if you're working for Python modules/projects, Django frameworks, or Python flask frameworks. It might be a bit annoying using PyCharm for HTML/Javascript/R, unless you've been paying for the premium version.

When a project requires OOPs style of coding calling multiple Python files across the project, this tool is well suited. Also, to inspect the changes made while manipulating data, it gives a good environment to see the 2 dimensional data in a nice format. The graphs and the User Interfaces are very informative.

PyCharm - A feature rich IDE for Python and Web Development

Likelihood to Recommend

  • 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

Exemplary IDE for Python Development

Vetted Review
Verified User

Likelihood to Recommend

PyCharm is well suited for any individual or organization looking to use Python for development and deployment. Additionally, PyCharm supports a number of different languages/apps: Javascript, Markup (XML, HTML, CSS), Django. It has an extensively customizable interface to change color schemes, code highlighting, macros, and hot keys. PyCharm's coding assistance - including syntax/error highlighting, code completion, and documentation - make it a standout IDE for developers. Additionally, if you're trying to learn Python, JetBrains has a PyCharm Ed(ucation) edition that offers basic instruction on the use of the IDE and how Python syntax works.

One of the best Python IDEs out there

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User

Likelihood to Recommend

Pycharm is great for experienced programmers who want an IDE with many options. Since the full version of Pycharm is expensive, I personally do not think it would be worth spending my own money on Pycharm. However, if for those who have access to a license, it's one of the best IDEs. It is great for academic and non-academic work environments and could be used for research, software development, and student projects. With built-in version control, it is a great choice for anyone. I would not recommend it to those new to programming or Python, as it can be a little tricky to get used to.

Great for a free, relatively less complex IDE where the main users are newer learners of Python. Less suitable for more complex/performance heavy operations that should be done on the command line or on a VM.

If you have a powerful machine and want to perform a data analysis job in Python, then this piece of software is for you. However, if you are more of a fan of the script nature of Python, then this IDE is not suited for you, because PyCharm cannot run code by chunks of the single file.

PyCharm is the perfect general Python development environment. It's value becomes apparent once your codebase reaches a certain size. It has excellent support for finding and updating references.

In the data analysis space it's probably easier to just use Jupyter Notebook.

Even considering its cons (which aren't much,) you won't find any IDE that works as good as this one with Python. Considering this is a language that is growing faster all the time, investing in this could be a great opportunity to make things easier for your developers, especially when working with Data Analytics.
