PyCharm vs Python Plugin

Hi,
I`m thinking about buying Intellij Idea IDE instead of PyCharm, because I develop in java, php and python. But I`m confused with Python plugin. Is there any differences between Pycharm and Python plugin? Or Pycharm 1.5.2 is functionally equal to Python plugin 2.7.1?

Thank you for your answer

Regards

Martin Svoboda

PS: You have my big respect for your work. Django support is awesome.

Hello Martin,

The Python plugin 2.7.1 in fact is slightly newer code than PyCharm 1.5.2;

it includes a number of fixes that will appear in PyCharm 1.5.3. In terms

of features, they're the same.

Hi Dmitry,

this is good news for me. I was suspecting python plugin as out-of-date, because I couldn`t run django template debugging. Also I couldn`t find any tutorial with this topic. It`s already reported in http://devnet.jetbrains.net/message/5306240# , could you help solve this problem out?

Thank you for your time

I've been using the Python plugin a fair bit . Works well, although I have noticed that it slows opening of my projects a fair bit, even standard Java ones, so I've now uninstalled it and was considering getting pycharm.

Anyone else experienced this? Maybe as the python plugin is newer instead of shelling out more cash, my solution would just be to create a 2nd copy of IDEA just for doing Python work so it doesn't affect my Java work.

Hello Steve,

I've been using the Python plugin a fair bit . Works well, although I

have noticed that it slows opening of my projects a fair bit, even

standard Java ones, so I've now uninstalled it and was considering

getting pycharm.

Anyone else experienced this? Maybe as the python plugin is newer

instead of shelling out more cash, my solution would just be to create

a 2nd copy of IDEA just for doing Python work so it doesn't affect my

Java work.

The plugin used to be newer at the specific point when I wrote that message.

Since that time, PyCharm 1.5.3 has been released, so PyCharm is now newer

again. Unfortunately we're unable to put the release cycles of PyCharm and

the Python plugin in sync, and normally PyCharm gets the latest features

earlier than the plugin.

As for the substance of your question, I don't know why the Python plugin

could slow down opening Java projects without any Python facets. You can

submit a CPU snapshot so that we could investigate why this happens.
