I have a confession. I have always used IDLE because I love it. It's slow, lacks a number of features, and is just all-around outdated.

So today I went and I got rid of it. I tried PyCharm in the past but it was too complicated for Python. I like JetBrain's IDE for Java, but not for Python. Instead, this time, I opted for Spyder. I tend to get quite excited about new IDEs, and I do like this one a fair bit. The editor offers a dark theme but the UI surrounding it does not. This is offensive, but acceptable, for the time being. Here's a screenshot. Any thoughts?

    @calmyourtities No, that's how you pass unlimited parameters to a function. Like '...' in most languages

    @rutvora I like it for web dev, anything else I hate using a electron-based editor.

    @calmyourtities They are just hidden according to some authors who claim C is the mother of all languages

    I must say, as confessions go I'm disappointed. I really expected to like you less after hearing it, but then you went and made a perfectly reasonable argument.

    Not only do I still respect you, but found myself relating to your IDE decisions. Big let down.

    @stisch It's hard to let go of IDLE after making so many games with it on my Raspberry Pi. There's a certain bond that forms.

    Use VSCode for python, it has all the features you might ever want while still being a relatively lightweight editor with a great UI

    I use Spacemacs for Python. You learn it once and use for almost every language.

    Why not use pycharm if you already use intellij?
    Its very nice to work with since the shortcuts are mostly the same.

    I personally love PyCharm! It is my favorite IDE when programing in Python.

    I used Spyder for work and I think I figured out how to fix the UI being white
    Can't remember how though

    @Orni Would appreciate the info if you happen to remember. I would guess changing the gnome theme would work.
