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.
