What is the Best Development environment for Python?

I need to engage in many Python projects.
What might be the best dev environment?
No doubt, Eclipse,
but if I choose New in the menu, it only has Java.
How do I add a Python module to Eclipse?
Is this Youtube of it correct? . . . anything imperfect?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

"Best" is a subjective term. You need to tell us what "best" means to you.

I agree with kaufmed. I, for one, prefer to use something simple, like Sublime Text. But I have used wingware previously and was good for debugging.

Best means, I guess, like Eclipse Java, all the auto-correct, warning underlining exists, and the help system is for Python.
and the Project relative components are in one folder in the column.

This is what a former HOD's reply was,

I have used PyDev with Eclipse and I have mixed feelings about the experience. At UNCW, we tend to use Idle in CS1, and PyCharm in CS2. PyCharm is a top notch Python IDE with a liberal community license. I would recommend trying out the community version of PyCharm.

As he said, I have been using Idle up until now, and an IDE would be preferable, now.
Has anybody used PyCharm ?
Walter RitzelSenior Software EngineerCommented:
Pycharm has a ring to it. I suggest that you download and try 2 or 3 and take your decision. With Python, everything tends to be personal experience.
