I’m looking for an IDE for python, friendly to beginners. Currently working with java in BlueJ in class but should be moving to eclipse by the end of the year.

I’d love to do some self-study in Python, any recommendations would be very welcome.

Budget would be up to £50

  • Please search the site first before asking yet another Python IDE question – user416 Oct 18 '19 at 9:11
  • I did, I found nothing useful. Whilst there are multitudes of ide questions in general, there are none for students or beginners as far as I could see. But if you could please link to where this question was asked before and had answers I would be very appreciative. – Watzit Oct 19 '19 at 9:13
  • Then at least describe what friendly to beginners is.... – user416 Oct 19 '19 at 10:12
  • My apologies, I didn’t realise it was a language barrier issue. Friendly to beginners means it’s easy for a beginner to work with. So in this usage, the difference between GarageBand and Logic X or as I said in my example, BlueJ and eclipse. – Watzit Oct 20 '19 at 9:59
  • Did you try PyCharm? – Mawg says reinstate Monica Mar 19 at 10:43

I have tried many, many, many Python IDEs and nothing comes close to holding a candle to PyCharm.

Modern, intuitive, powerful, a joy to work with - and the community edition is free, even for commercial use.

I use it daily both at work and at home and can't imagine using any other Python IDE (be sure to learn the debugger - it's your best friend ;-).
