[PyQt] Which IDE is good for developing PyQt application

I've been using pycharm for a couple years and its the best IDE for Python
by far (I've been doing Python for almost 15 years and have used -- not
just tried -- several including NetBeans, Eclipse, SPE, Ninja, PyScripter,
and others). JetBrains has thought of everything, it's just incredible,
including refactoring, debugging and unit testing in a powerful and usable
interface. However, the Community edition is only available free under
certain conditions (open source project with active mailing list for 3
months, etc). If you can afford the 100$ I would go for it, you'll never go

For absolutely free I you also try (in addition to Eric) NetBeans and
PyScripter, although at the time I was using them (2010-2012'ish) I wasn't
using PyQt so I don't know if they integrate in any special way with it.
PyCharm integrates in that you can debug even multhreaded PyQt apps (that
use QThread rather than threading), and you can extend the toolbar to make
it super easy to run Qt Designer or PyUIC on selected .ui file.
