If you are talking about writing simple scripts in Python then any text editor will work even 'nano'.If you are talking about writing more complicated programs in Python then you need IDE as you will need debugging functionality.I personally use Eclipse with PyDev plug-in on Windows machine. As Python is cross-platform language you can developyour program on one platform and deploy on another. PyDev also allows remote debugging. For example you can startyour Python program on Raspberry Pi (Linux) and debug it in Eclipse/PyDev on Windows.Good luck.On Sat, Dec 22, 2018 at 1:08 PM tom arnall <kloro2006@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:after using many editors for programming over many years, I finally
