Overall Satisfaction with PyCharm

I used PyCharm as IDE for all projects, which were based on Python code.

Typical tasks were:
- UI test automation (Selenium, Appium)
- API test automation (Requests)
- Data scraping, parsing and converting

Also I am using PyCharm Community Edition for my personal needs (like self educational projects in machine learning, statistics etc).
  • Very, very smart and easy code editor
  • Integration with scientific tools (NumPy, Matplotlib, pandas and so on)
  • HTML and JavaScript support
  • No auto updates (at least at MacOS)
  • Heavy weight for simple projects
  • Development process with PyCharm became faster.
Eclipse (PyDev) requires a lot of manual tuning, while PyCharm has all tools what I need right out of the box.
PyCharm is absolutely great for big and complex projects, however it looks rather heavy weight if you need to do something quickly.
