PyCharm and Xcode Reviews

PyCharm

If you begin to use a library that you don’t have installed, PyCharm will let you know and makes the installation process really seamless. RStudio could actually probably take a page out of PyCharm’s playbook, there.

Xcode

Simplicity, the way it's preventing errors and mistakes. Coding in Swift is very satisfying thanks to Xcode. You can use the Storyboards to build the front end interface. In this case everything is almost interface only, with drag and drop objects, and visual settings. I like this because it can really give the opportunity to beginners to develop apps so much easily than 100% programmatically. As an ex graphic designer this is very convenient and I am used to such an environment including UI design patterns.

I've tried NotePad++, PyCharm and most recently SublimeText, the latter 2 being IDEs vs a text editor with plugins. Below I compare the trial and free options, not the Pro versions.

Not the program itself but sometimes there are too many Objective C in Swift. Sometimes the errors are appearing way too fast. I don't even have the time to finish the lines of code I was writing that Xcode is already complaining and showing red errors. It can be a bit disturbing at first, but we are used to it.

PyCharm has lots of nice features - file browser, intelligent auto-completion, run in IDE with input & console windows for trial and error development.

The best thing about xcode is that it's created by Apple and the ease of creating ios apps, for both iPhone and iPad, is very large. You can not only create the app, but also manage the UI, prepare the app for testing, upload to production...


The debugging tool is the best I have used, the use of breakpoints, memory and power management is very good and helps the developer a lot.


I love that there is an emulator with all iPhone and iPad devices to test all screen sizes. Also, one of my favorite features (included not long ago) is the ability to launch the app on your iPhone without having to connect it to your Mac.

I don’t use PyCharm Pro, but PyCharm CE is a GREAT tool for developing. Comes with the pip package management tool, which it has integrated seamlessly into its software. Easy interface, project bar. If only I could afford the Pro edition, that’s got to be great! USE IT!
