[SciPy-user] wxpython

I'm a bit annoyed at having to give up the 'integrated' environment of
IDLE and use ipython, although I concede that ipython is quite nice. In
particular I now need an editor. Can anyone help? Unlike you I prefer
emacs but haven't yet found an easy win32 binary (any idea where I can
get it? I would rather not mess with cygwin etc). Also, it's a bit
heavyweight. 
 
I will check out crimsoneditor, looks nice.

I am a bit of an editor freak.  I have finally decided on VIM.  It is a
bit painful at first and like VI, it has modes where typing doesn't
produce text.  But the leads to lots of key board short cuts and it has
tab-completion as well.

Another good choice is Crimson Editor.  It is free and does syntax
highlighting for many languages including python.  I have used it for
matlab, LaTeX, html, python, and C++.  http://www.crimsoneditor.com/

Other people may have other suggestions.

	also, what editor do you use with ipython? I quite liked the
idle built in editor

	Ipython can be made to run in color if you follow the Windows
install instructions.  It will also suggest syntax when you hit the tab
key.
