        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.

        • helpful configurations, though tedious
        • online docs (rival stackoverflow)

        처음 파이썬을 배웠을 때 pycharm으로 배웠습니다. 지금은 빔을 사용하기 때문에 사용하진 않습니다.
