Re: [rocpy] Your text editor of choice?

I mostly work over ssh, and I use vim pretty much exclusively.

That said, if they're new to programming I'd recommend something like Notepad++ (for Windows) or gedit (on unix): vim's learning curve might be steeper than Python's =) Something with syntax highlighting and tabs-insert-spaces is probably fine.

Hi everyone,

I need input from our fellow Pythonistas about how you edit your code. I need to give useful recommendations to a bunch of students for who will be learning Python.

Q: What are your top 3 text editors for your platform of choice?

My answer: On OS X I prefer MacVim, exclusively. Though, I would use Sublime Text and TextMate 2.

Your help is appreciated, thanks!
