What is Best Integrated Development Environment (IDEs)?

In this Article you will know about Best Integrated Development Environment (IDEs).

Best Integrated Development Environment – Before moving ahead, let’s know a little bit about Python Basics.

What is IDE?

An IDE is Integrated Development Environment that is a text editor or coding platform that allows writing codes. It is developed by combining such common tools into a single platform by using Python function tkinter GUI toolkit. In other words, IDE is a software application that supports a few lines of code to be executed.

What features does an IDE have?

Integrated Development Environment (IDE) is a software application that is completely created using Python function tkinter Graphical User Interface (GUI). It is available on different platforms such as Windows, Unix, and macOS.

Apart from this, it has some features in its Home Menu Section to work on it like shell window (interactive interpreter) that provides features like coloring code input, output, and error message, another feature is Debug that allows developers to run code under the debugger, means, a breakpoint can be set with each line of code to see the particular output of each line of code also there is another feature that allows developers to change its basics codings formats, such as changing fonts and indentation size, text color themes, startup windows and size, additional help sources, and extensions, etc. and the main last important feature is Help that includes Python Docs in itself as an option that provides Python documentation (means, Beginner’s Level Python course in written format).

Why do developers work with IDEs?

An IDE is a complete lightweight usable platform to write short and a few lines of code that speeds up developers to write code freely without spending hours. An individual is don’t need to use different IDE to learn because it provides various tools where every resource is presented on the same page. This is really the best IDE for those developers who gets less time to complete their short-time work. Also, developers move ahead with IDE because it saves time, like helping with generated codes automated, which saves time for typing full character sequences.     

Popular types of IDEs –

  1. Visual Studio Code – It is made by Microsoft and also known as VS Code. It is one of the most famous IDEs that is available for such popular platforms like Windows, Mac and Linux. Visual Code is a powerful code editor that is pre-loaded with so many developing tools. Its some important features are debugging, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets, code refactoring, and embedded Git.

    Features –
    • Debugging – One of the key features of Visual Code is Debugging that helps developer to go throughout each line of codes by marking a breakpoint. It is very useful to know where exactly error is incurring. By setting up a breakpoint, it gives access to fix your problem line-by-line by reading and understanding output of each line. VS Code has so many popular extensions that supports its Debugging feature, those extensions are Python, C/C++, C# and Java etc.

    • Code Navigation – VS Code is a high-level code editor, which, when combined with programming language, makes the coding power double and speed up an IDEs and text editors. It provides shortcuts to navigate file such as by pressing Ctrl+P (Quick Open), you can enter file name and open it quickly. Apart from this, it has a great explorer to navigate file between files of a project.

      When a developer working on a project, he can easily jump between the same set of files easily by giving command to across files. Hold Ctrl and Press Tab to view list of all files to open in text editor. To open one of these files, press Tab again to navigate file that you want to open, and then release Ctrl

    • Tips and Tricks – VS Code provides “Tips and Tricks” to let know new users how to get started with VS Code. A one can easily head-over to “Tips and Tricks” by going to “Help” section that makes a user familiar with its code intelligence, powerful editing, and source code. In the section “Tips and Tricks”, a user gets whole guide to go throughout each section of menu with introductory videos and keyboard cheatsheet.

    • Command Palette – It lets user to go throughout any option in menu by typing Ctrl+Shift+P. With just a few keywords, less than a minute, it gives access to get you any option of menu by searching without navigate through the menu or remember any key settings.

       
    • Intellisense – It is one of the great and common features of text editors. Its analysis the whole semantics (letters) what a user types and suggests how & what to write next with the help of its some features like completion of code, quick information of parameters and member list. It supports Intellisense with programming languages are JavaScript, TypeScript, JSON, HTML, CSS, SCSS.

      Intellisense of VS Code analysis only word-based codes for any programming language but can also be reached up to the next level of Intellisense by installing a language extension.  


  2. Sublime Text – Sublime Text is a cross-source code editor software with a Python application programming interface. It is available for platforms like Windows, Mac and Linux. It supports some packages that are available by default like Python, C++, and Emmet which helps to write HTML and CSS codes faster by showing abbreviations.

    • GOTO Anything – It allows a user to open any file in just few keywords by pressing Ctrl + P, and instantly jump to symbols, lines or words. Search a file by writing file name, type @ to jump to symbols, # to search within the file, and : to go to a line number.
    • Command Palette – It lets user to go throughout any option in menu by typing Ctrl+Shift+P. With just a few keywords, you can search and reach-out to the any option you want without navigate through the menu or remember any key settings.
    • Instant Project Switch – It is light free to switch between projects in Sublime Text through Goto Anything option. An individual is not necessary to save file while switching between files, because all your changes and modification will be restored next time the project is opened.
    • Cross Platform – Sublime Text is a cross-source code editor software application with availability of all platform like Windows, Mac and Linux. All just an individual needs a license to access Sublime Text on any computer with no barrier of any operating system.

    Features –
    • Intelligent Code Editor – PyCharm is pre-built smart code editor that supports writing high-quality Python code. It offers next level of coding power that enhanced its readability by distinct syntax and error highlighting and color schemes for keywords.

    • Integrated Debugging and Testing – As another IDEs, PyCharm is also available with debugging and testing programs. It is integrated with Python debugging that checks code line-by-line and helps to fix error.

    • Navigation – Its navigation feature makes easy to reach-out to any option from menu in less than a minute, such as class, function and opening a file. It also saves time of developer that required to edit Python code. Apart from this, it has a great explorer to navigate file between files of a project. When a developer working on a project, he can easily jump between the same set of files easily by giving command to across files.  

    • PyCharm Technology Supports – PyCharm is especially used in Python Codes but an individual can use PyCharm for creating Web Applications, as its support web technologies including CoffeeScript, TypeScript, HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
