I'm starting with Python and I prefer IDE's instead of working on commandlines so I was happy to see this new product.
My first observations (I'm still a complete python noob, so apologies if I just did something stupid)
I own a macbook pro (4gb, intel)
- First when starting the IDE, it takes a long time before anything happens.
- I started a new project (this also feels slow)
- I add a new file: test.py which also takes a long time to show, and when I typed on it nothing happens. After 5 seconds, my typing is shown.
- I type something silly:
a = "test";
for x in a:
print "letter:" + x
and then select run from the menu.
I get an 'IDE internal error, contact jet brains'.
This doesn't give me much hope yet. Am I doing fundamentally flawed things or should I wait for a few months until the IDE can be worked with?
Also, why is the IDE slow? Is it because it still is a debug build with loads of logging? Will this be fixed eventually?
