I'm using a combination of Eclipse + PyDev and I like it a lot. Here is
a critique of it from another forum which convinced me to give it a try:
"""I searched around the web quite a bit and found Eclipse+PyDev to
be the most recommended IDE overall. I downloaded just the basic
52MB Eclipse (eclipse-platform-3.7RC4-win32.zip, no installation
needed) since it's smaller and I read online that it runs faster.
Then I added PyDev to it.
It detected my existing installations (For the sake of NLTK and
other libraries, I had bit the bullet and installed Python 2.7 in
parallel with 3.2) and looked capable of handling IronPython as well.
So far, I'm very impressed with its features for debugging, code
completion, code checking, and speeding up repetitive tasks. It also
keeps track of multiple Python engines and "grammars" (one of each
per project). It can do path configuration so one project can
apparently be listed as a resource for another project for easy
importing, but I wasn't able to get this set up properly (yet). And
I don't see a way to have this update my Windows environment
variable (PythonPath), so I still have to tweak that sometimes when
running stuff from the Windows command line.
It doesn't seem to allow launching/debugging of Python files that
are not part of a project in Eclipse, probably because the
interpreter and path would be undefined. It can edit these files,
however (with syntax highlighting but not code completion, I think). """
I also liked an IDE called "Spyder2"
http://packages.python.org/spyder/) which integrates very well with
PyQt4 (it's a requirement), but I had to look for another when I moved
to Python 3.
