Python Programming Toolbox

At this month's PyGTA meeting, we discussed what's in people's Python programming toolboxes. One surprise was that more than half the group did not use an IDE for development. Another surprise was that almost half the group used vim, making it the most common editor. It was a small group though so I wouldn't read too much into that statistic.

I found that my toolbox was not as full featured as some of the others. For example, I don't use tools to generate documentation from the code, whereas this seemed to be a common practice among the other programmers. It was an interesting discussion and I picked up a few ideas that might be worth exploring to see if they fit with my programing style.
