Geany is a lightweight IDE that supports python.

Some features that I have found particularly useful include:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Automatic indenting - especially useful for python
  • Code folding, allowing you to hide parts of your code
  • Inbuilt syntax checking and execution
  • Symbol browser
  • Embedded terminal
  • Find and replace with regexp support
