Needs advice
on
IntelliJ IDEAIntelliJ IDEA
and
PyCharmPyCharm

I'm currently working on a book about file structures. The text is written in LaTeX (with IntelliJ IDEA + TeXiFy) and the sample code is in Python (using PyCharm).

Since I use two IDEs, I have a distinct project for text and code.

I was thinking if I could join the projects in a single IDE, a that's my question:

  • Should I use PyCharm and install the TeXiFy plugin,
  • Should I stick to IDEA and install Python support to it, or
  • Should I keep the two projects separated?

Thanks

PyCharm

Since the code is python, pycharm is lighter on resources, and there is no need to use the full Intellij IDE.

The project management is easier in PyCharm and for a sample project you probably don't need the complex project management in intellij. I definitely wouldn't use two IDEs at the same time, unless you got too much machine capacity and like more complex interactions.
