I hope this question is okay for the forum. I want to ask for your experiance with Python editors.

Currently, I use VS Code to work with Python. However, in R Studio I really appreciate that it holds data frames in the memory and makes it easy to view/inspect dataframes and other items. I'm "closer to the data" in R Studio. Also line-by-line/blockwise execution of code is really helpful.

So my question: Is there anything like R Studio for Python (preferably non-browser based)? Can someone recommend an editor for Python with similar features like R Studio (especially wrt data handling)?

Spyder is quite similar to R-studio.

A less common option would be the IDE called Rodeo. It was designed to mimic RStudio and may provide many of the features you are seeking. There is also something called Reticulated Python that allows you to use Python within Rstudio.

For python development, three IDEs top most of the charts.

  1. PyCharm
  2. Spyder
  3. Eclipse + PyDev

While second and third are open source, you can download the basic version of the first one for free. In all the three, you have option to enable a window too see the data you want to see while debugging.
