In the past, I've been evaluating many Python IDE's and editors available, since I can't live without a decent IDE with syntax highlighting and code completion. For my school projects I implemented mostly Python applications with web front-ends, built with Django or Flask frameworks and this is the area where PyCharm excels. Its debugger helped me to sort out many problems that would otherwise take hours to pinpoint. I recommend PyCharm to everyone who's looking for a Python IDE and I've got used to the PyCharm so much that I'll definitely buy a developer license for my personal/professional use after finishing the school.

PyCharm, with the IdeaVim plugin, offers enough parity with Vim to make me happy despite having a few warts, while the editor’s code navigation, refactoring tools, test runner, debugger and other features I will discuss in this review keep me more focused and joyful than I have ever been writing code.
