There was a lengthy discussion in the numpy list on this matter :

I think mainly because of the general purpose nature of the Python plus
open-source developments there are so many alternatives for
editor/development environment choice. A popular stackoverflow thread lists
almost all of them at

I have started with IPython + SciTe and later moved on GVIM, once in a while
I use Eclipse+PyDev. In terms of speed of development IPython+GVIM pair is
my favorite and GVIM is a very powerful text editor -even if it doesn't
provide the cell feature :)

Spyder (http://code.google.com/p/spyderlib/) might be the closest it gets
for the MATLAB-wise development environments. It's QT4 based and actively
being developed.

Let us know about your findings.
