just commenting complaints about installation on Windows OS: which I'd like to address here: Actually it was a piece of cake to install it with the following installation steps: 1 --> Python3.4 (still need to check, whether it works with Python3.5 as well) 2 --> Qt package (in my case qt-opensource-windows-x86-mingw492-5.5.1.exe) 3 --> PyQt package (PyQt5-5.5.1-gpl-Py3.4-Qt5.5.1-x32.exe) with QScintilla 4 --> eric6-6.0.11 (important: in a shell with admin rights!) I was close to be lost as well with installing eric on Win OS, which in my view mainly stems from an outdated / imprecise description at the eric homepage. Hope, this does the trick for others as well ...
Great python open-source project: easy to debug other python and django projects!!
quite good and multiplatform
Excellent IDE. Just wish it would install on Mac OS X 10.8.4. QScintilla seems to be my problem. At least as far as an easy install of PyQt so that I can get Eric4 running.
