It's big, it's bloated and gobbles down around 2gb of RAM on a bad day, but I use PyCharm because it's an amazingly powerful tool. You may think that your editor is all you ever need, but nothing beats PyCharm's insight tools, built-in linter, massive library of extensions, and broad support for common frameworks like Django.

I use it every day and after 6+ years, I still love it.
