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 the "python2" branch, which will be deprecated.

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 PyCharm, Atom, and Sublime Text 3 projects.


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

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.

Sublime Text 3

Sublime uses the testpython.sublime-project file.

Current Features

  • Multiple directories for testing build systems and IDEs

Is it any good?


To Do

  • Make project.cson work, and be platform independent.
  • Maybe removing the project key "testpython" will make it work?
