IDE’s and Dynamic Languages

I have been working with Python a fair amount recently, and really miss a lot of the tool features I use when working with Java. In particular, lacking the ability to automatically apply common refactorings and auto-complete obvious code really “cramps my style”. In most cases I have a pretty clear idea of what I want to do, and how I want to get there, but I find that the process of using Python is just more laborious.

I guess that puts me squarely in Ted Leung’s group of “experienced developers” rather than the “early adopters” who are happy to use more generic tools in order to gain the benefits of a new language and its abilities.
