Well, considering python isn't compiled I use anything. I tend to use IDLE at the start but quickly switch to Sublime Text 2 or something to save time. Saying that, I hardly use python since I just hate the syntax.

Hey Friends and specially my @Bucky 
man , for simple projects , i prefer IDLE 
for more complicated projects ... i'd rather use Eclipse and the Addone for Python named PyDev 
and also 
if it's an important project , even if its complicated , i just use IDLE 'cause it have more debugging features ! 

so for over all IDLE get more scores from me ;)

I use Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Desktop edition. It's free and it allows me to make C#, Python, C++ and SQL. Works pretty good, and can easily be packaged for different platforms.

I've been using Pycharm for a couple of weeks now and I really like it.  It looks good and has handy features (like being able to change variable names in your code in one hit,  rather than having to go through every line to change them individually).
I also find it to be quite stable too.  Previously, I was using Enthought's Canopy, but it would sometimes have issues when running large files, especially if there was a lot of recursion involved.  Since using Pycharm I haven't had any issues at all.

I agree Gary. I tried a few different Python IDE's and PyCharm is hands down my favorite. Super simple to use and has every feature I could ask for.

hello Bucky
I have a problem with pycharm
I downloaded the latest version but it won't work
I install it but whenever I run it a message appears saying " error invoking main method "
I hope you can help me because I'm a beginner with python and I really like to use pycharm as it's the best as you say

If I'm on Windows, I use Notepad++ and command prompt to run. 

Usually, though, on my main computer (Running Fedora 20 XFCE Spin), I use vim. 
Vim is a terminal-based text-editor with Syntax highlighting, etc. 

It's a lot simpler (in my opinion) to be able to write/quit, and then run. 

I use it a lot when making C programs as well. 
Since, I can just hit up on the keyboard, it's really simple to compile/run/edit the file again when needed.

I used pycharm (community edition) and it's good as far as i can say.

You can try sublime Text 2. Or Notepad++ with terminal also works fine.

*nix_server = vim # Because anything else would be uncivilized
Windows = Visual Studio || PyCharm # I like them both equally.
Linux Desktop = PyCharm
Mac = PyCharm

Most of the people that develop python, prefer PyCharm.  That speaks volumes.  Its integration with other syntax's (JSON, HTML, XML, CSS) and Git are extremely valuable.  Plus its debugging features is amazing.
