You might want to take a look at Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition.

Python is fully integrated first class citizen to the IDE and development process.

I develop on my PC and then copy the project to IBMi for deployment.

You might find the following session I did last year interesting:

Thanks Jack,

So you're talking about setting up to work with Python on my PC, but over an IFS directory that resides remotely in the IBM i IFS.

I was thinking of getting used to Python on my local PC, and then working with the IFS. I would get more comfortable with doing Python stuff first, but that sounds like it's simple enough to do.

My company would not stop it, they'd likely welcome it, as some of the younger guys were trying to use Python to replace the PHP setup they have for sending email and attachments, which was kind of cumbersome. M$ changing specs and formats for Excel and XML hasn't helped.

Long run, at some point if I got good enough, I'd do a how-to presentation for the group.

Thanks a million to all of you for your information.
