A test repo to compare different Python IDEs.



This is just a test project. You can do anything here, test python and IDE projects.

This branch is of Python 3 code. There's a python2 branch too.

Getting the project

You can get a copy of this project by clicking on the ZIP or TAR buttons near the top right of the GitList web page.

You can clone from the origin with:

git clone ssh://USERNAME@dlma.com/~/git/testpython.git

Supported IDEs

This project has example Visual Studio Code, PyCharm, Atom, and Sublime Text 3 projects.

Visual Studio Code

Download Microsoft's Visual Studio Code from code.visualstudio.com. Code uses the testpython.code-workspace project file. I prefer this to GitHub's Atom. Both are based on GitHub's Electron.


PyCharm uses the .idea directory. JetBrains suggests sharing the .idea directory except for workspace.xml and tasks.xml.

Sublime Text 3

Sublime uses the testpython.sublime-project file.

GitHub's Atom

Download from atom.io. These are useful modules:

If you install project-manager, it looks for a local "project.cson" file, and merges those settings with what is in the .atom projects.cson file.

Current Features

  • Multiple directories for testing build systems and IDEs

Is it any good?
