What would be an equivalent python setup on a mac
Ok, complete newby wannabe coder here, and I've made something in pythonista I quite enjoy, but I just got a Macbook Pro and would like to find an equivalent setup for it. Where should I invest my time? Xcode, Pycharm, or what? I really love how smooth it is for me to work in pythonista, does anything else come close on a mac?
My goal is to move towards developing for iOS and mac platforms most likely with swift once I understand programming better, so I'm quite happy to continue down the python path until I want to take on the next language.
Scripts from Pythonista should mostly work on any platform running Python 2, provided you have the required external modules installed. Most Python modules/packages can be installed using the pip command line tool, in most cases it should be enough to run
sudo pip2 install <packagename>in a terminal.
Be aware that the custom iOS-specific Python modules like
motion, etc. are not available on other platforms. Someone made a port of the
scenemodule that uses the Pygame library for graphics, but other than that you'd need to use other libraries. Python comes with the Tkinter GUI module, which is essentially an interface to the Tk framework. There are also various other bindings for common UI frameworks, such as PyQt and PySide for Qt and wxPython for wxWidgets.
