In this article I’ll explain how you can set-up your Windows 10 machine for some extreme Python development.
Hey guys, I have recently been playing around with the insider preview of Windows 10. Love it so far, and since everyone will likely upgrade form Windows 8 to Windows 10, I thought I’d write some articles using it.
This article explains how to install Eclipse Luna on Windows 10. Eclipse is unique to most IDE’s in that it doesn’t have an installer.
If you are just starting to learn Python development, you may be wondering what is a good IDE (Interactive Development Environment) you can use to get the code flowing? My personal favorite is Eclipse with the PyDev plugin.
Why is it my favourite? For a few reasons:
- Eclipse is a powerful IDE with many built in features.
- Eclipse has an extensive marketplace for plugins.
- It’s Open Source.
- Easily sync projects to remote servers over SSH.
- Nice Git integration.
So, how do you get going with this awesome IDE?
In this tutorial I will be using Windows 8.1, however it will work equally as well on a Mac or Linux machine.
