"Wing - A First Class IDE for Python Development"

What do you like best?

The Wing IDE has all the features you would expect in an development environment but I am particularly impressed by its keyboard personality choices which allow me to use it without having to get to learn yet another unique set of keyboard commands - I can set it to use the Microsoft Visual Studio keyboard personality that I am already very familiar with. Another important factor is the investment that the Wing team make in keeping their IDE up to date. Python itself is regularly updated, adding new features that require IDE updates and I am happy to say that the Wing team always keeps up with the latest Python releases. I am also impressed by the reliability of the IDE over the almost 10 years that I have been using it. The responsiveness of the support team is also a strong plus for those occasions where a bit of help is needed. In overall terms the Wing IDE is a first class product that I can recommend without hesitation.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about the product

"Awesome IDE for Python"

What do you like best?

Wingware IDE 6.0 provides many features which makes it a popular one like, it displays errors in a very feasible manner with auto complete feature which saves much of the developer's time and efforts.

Wing as also one of the most attractive feature that if your trial expires then also it gives a 10 min emergency session which helps the developer to migrate the complete project.

Adding to that it also has source browser which displays all the variables used in the code.

It is also packed with top line editing features like swapping and duplication of lines.

It is also equipped with an additional Exception handling tab which makes it easier for developers to debug the code.

What do you dislike?

The wing UI does not have Dark Theme feature and after 30 day trial its too expensive!!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wing IDE is best, Just go for it!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project dealing with Django and diff and merge integration and some stuff dealing with integration of different API's are solved by me with WING IDE.

"Best IDE for Python"

What do you like best?

Wing IDE 6.0 Pro provides many attractive features like:

1.) Auto Complete feature to complete the para phrases

2) Displays the errors in a feasible manner

3.)It also has Line Editing Features like swap lines and duplicate lines

4.)The best part is under the Refactor panel that is Extract function/method which is the best of all

5.)Enclose with feature also included!!

What do you dislike?

It charges $39 after 30-day trial and the UI does not support Dark theme as in other editors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Some concepts like PEP8 are a bit complex so my suggestion to the beginners is that they should first have a good hands on with at least two or more other python IDE's

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Complex scripts like image processing and scripts that have to connect to cloud are easily executable in WING IDE. Also while testing any code WING provides the best experience.

"Wing Python IDE Review"

What do you like best?

- Wing Python IDE shows where the error occurred in a very visible way.

- It's easy to create breakpoints and to step into, over and out.

- Source Assistant pane shows information about the module, variable, type of the object. Also shows in which parameter you are.

- Easy to navigate classes and functions.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't have a native way to check PEP8, interface can be intimidating at first.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wing Python IDE Pro is a very powerful tool to have if you work with Python. They offer 30 days trial for the PRO version, so this is a good way to see if the tool has everything you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Wing when I need to create a more complex script and need a more robust debugger that let me cycle through the code step by step.

"Great all-around Python debugger and edtior"

What do you like best?

- First-class debugger

- Great, extensible editor

- Cross-compatible with Windows / Linux / Mac

- Responsive email support

- Extensive set of tools

What do you dislike?

- I can't get it to fill out my taxes :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been using Wing IDE as my main development environment for 10 years now.

I'm a big fan of Wing. I've used it for my open-source projects, my client projects when I was working as a freelancer, and now I use it at my work in a corporate environment. I do Python programming almost exclusively, so its Python-centric approach is a good fit for me.

The debugger is first-class. It works on multi-process, multi-thread programs. You have your breakpoints, watches, step commands and everything you can expect from a modern debugger. Remote debugging is supported, which is especially crucial in a corporate environment, where you're debugging code that runs on different machines. They've recently added advanced features like recursive debugging, which helped me do some deep troubleshooting at my job.

The editor is great. It's got VI and eMacs mode and it's extensible with scripts. It has lots of useful tools (like showing documentation, refactoring, diffing, Python shell, etc.) which I spread across 2 big monitors.

The support staff is great. I've made many suggestions and requests for improvement to them over the years and they've implemented many of them. Bugs are fixed quickly.

Overall, I highly recommend Wing IDE!

"Wingware is more than a Python IDE"

What do you like best?

Wing's editor includes auto-completion, documentation, inline error detection, code quality analysis, PEP 8 enforcement, invocation assistance, auto-editing, refactoring, code folding, multi-selection, customizable code snippets. A powerful debugger with conditional breakpoints & has an easy code navigation system. Wing supports development with Django, Flask, web2py, Pyramid, Google App Engine, and other web frameworks, which is why I chose Wing! There are many more features for a professional Python developer, such as dark mode!

Best of all, is that Wingware is very supportive to its customers. They are also generous to non-profits!

What do you dislike?

I suppose the interface might do with some updating, but I prefer the features to beauty!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take Wing Python IDE for a test drive & try all its features. Any problems, contact support to confirm Wing are there to help and assist!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am still very much a learner and use Wing Python IDE for web development.

"Good IDE for Python but User Interface could be better"

What do you like best?

It is very easy and simple to use. That is the best point of WING ide. You can navigate very easily and find what you need. It is good for new users.

What do you dislike?

User interface is not modern and it looks quite old. It could be upgraded better design. And it would be really great to see easy library importing like online automatically it will download and import.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is easy to run python code and find errors easily in IDE. Except than this for sure it is better than coding in some notepad programs. It shows you possible errors. I recommend this program who has beginner or intermediate level. But there are other products for professionals who can get more benefits.
