Insanely Great Science



I must admit I’m a big fan of BBEdit for all my text editing, Markdown and python programming but I still keep an eye out for interesting alternatives. I was recently sent a link to PyCharm a Python IDE. PyCharm's code editor provides support for Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, CSS, and a number of other languages. What caught my eye was the recently added support for iPython notebooks, with PyCharm 4 you can perform all the usual IPython Notebook actions with *.ipynb files. Everything you're used to doing with the ordinary IPython Notebook is now supported inside PyCharm.


Another very useful features for scientific programming is the NumPy array viewer to easily get a graphical view of a NumPy array and support for matplotlib.

There is a really comprehensive support section that includes demos and screencasts .
