Re: [nycpython] Selecting an IDE for Django development?

Why don't you just trust your dev and get PyCharm for them?  

Isaul put it best.   EMACS is only useful for someone who knows how to configure it and use it already.   If you have your developer use EMACS based on the suggestion of a different developer (trust or not); you'll probably end up shooting yourself in the foot and cause slowdowns while the new developer learns to use the new tool.  I assume you're the technical manager of the operation and that you like your feet.

As someone who has just started a small Django project, that is with very little code, I'm perfectly happy in TextMate or Sublime Edit but if it is larger I can see a need to request a more full featured IDE.  Go ahead and trust your current dev on this one.

I have asked another dev, whom I trust that does Django development,
and he said to use EMACS.

Clearly, there are a wide variety of opinions, that spans the rich
ecosystem of development tool choices available to Python developers

I tried to do a bit of research, and it seems that the field of Python
IDEs is massive as evidenced by

Any thoughts or recommendations are appreciated.
