pre-commit vs PyCharm: What are the differences?
What is pre-commit? A slightly improved pre-commit hook for git. pre-commit checks your code for errors before you commit it. pre-commit is configurable.
pre-commit belongs to "Git Tools" category of the tech stack, while PyCharm can be primarily classified under "Integrated Development Environment".
Some of the features offered by pre-commit are:
- debugger: make sure you don't commit a debugger statement
- tabs: make sure your code uses leading spaces instead of tabs
- whitespace: make sure you don't commit trailing whitespace
On the other hand, PyCharm provides the following key features:
- Syntax highlighting
- Auto-Indentation and code formatting
- Code completion

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)
