Switching to Python

Yesterday I looked through a bunch of things related to developing in Python and PostgreSQL. One of the things I was researching was unit testing my code. Unit testing is the testing of individual software components. Many frameworks exist for doing this. These include NUnit, JUnit, MbUnit, and MS Unit Testing. Yesterday I looked at PyUnit, a port of JUnit to Python,  as a potential candidate for testing not only code for future Python programs, but also unit testing functions in PostgreSQL. For now, I think this will be sufficient.

As I’ve started to use Python more, I’ve yearned for a better IDE than Eclipse and PyDev. So far the only commercial IDE’s I have read about are WingIDE and ActiveState’s Komodo. I plan on looking at these sometime soon.
