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.
I used pycharm for Machine learning. Then I switched back to sublime and I am going to try atom now.
Free for community projects... Must try for those looking for Python IDEs. Works out of the box.
- great editor
- helpful configurations, though tedious
- online docs (rival stackoverflow)
