Hi James, I also use Atom with some packages installed like linter-flake8, however some devs i know use PyCharm and they all say it's great for Python: https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/

Nice. Thanks -- I'll definitely check those out!

I think Jupyter notebooks is good, though not great, as a text editor. Better as a portfolio display, like in GitHub. Treehouse has a 15-minute workshop on Jupyter!
