PyCharm vs Spyder: a quick comparison of two Python IDEs

In this post, PyCharm vs Spyder will be compared. If you have followed my blog you may have noticed that a lot of focus have been put on how to learn programming (particularly in Python). I have also written about Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). I think that an IDE may, in fact, be very useful when learning how to code. Of course, when it comes to Python IDEs it may be hard to choose the best one (e.g., PyCharm vs Spyder?).

Spyder is one of my long-time favorite IDEs, and I am mainly using Spyder when I have to write code in Windows environments. However, in one of my blog posts PyCharm was suggested in one comment (see the comments on this post: Why Spyder is the Best Python IDE for Science) that I should test PyCharm.

After testing out PyCharm I started to like this IDE. In this post you will find my views on the two IDEs. E.g., I intend to answer the question; which is the best Python IDE; PyCharm or Spyder?

RStudio-like Python IDEs – Rodeo and Spyder

In this post I will discuss two Python Integrated Development Environments (IDE); Rodeo and Spyder. Both Python IDEs might be useful for researchers used to work with R and RStudio (a very good and popular IDE for R) because they offer similar functionalities and graphical interfaces as RStudio. That is, Rodeo and Spyder can both be seen as the RStudio for Python.
