PyCharm is our preferred IDE for python apps, for all its simple awesomeness in writing code, as well as the ease with which you can run a Django shell, a web server, or run tests.

When some regex or hardly scriptable but pattern-type problem occurs, I always go to notepad++. Also nice for file inspection (like image-meta).
