I use Git instead of SVN (Subversion) because it allows us to scale our development team. At any given time, the Zulip open source project has hundreds of open pull requests from tens of contributors, each in various stages of the pipeline. Git's workflow makes it very easy to context switch between different feature branches.
I use Visual Studio Code because at this time is a mature software and I can do practically everything using it.
It's free and open source: The project is hosted on GitHub and it’s free to download, fork, modify and contribute to the project.
Multi-platform: You can download binaries for different platforms, included Windows (x64), MacOS and Linux (
LightWeight: It runs smoothly in different devices. It has an average memory and CPU usage. Starts almost immediately and it’s very stable.
.properties, XML and JSON files.
Integrated tools: Includes an integrated terminal, debugger, problem list and console output inspector. The project navigator sidebar is simple and powerful: you can manage your files and folders with ease. The command palette helps you find commands by text. The search widget has a powerful auto-complete feature to search and find your files.
Extensible and configurable: There are many extensions available for every language supported, including syntax highlighters, IntelliSense and code completion, and debuggers. There are also extension to manage application configuration and architecture like Docker and Jenkins.
Integrated with Git: You can visually manage your project repositories, pull, commit and push your changes, and easy conflict resolution.( there is support for SVN (Subversion) users by plugin)
My current work has taught me so much of SVN. Though it is classic and has own pros and cons, I like it too specially the way it handles and tracks the edits with revision numbers and merge techniques.
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)
