Eclipse vs SourceTree: What are the differences?
Developers describe Eclipse as "IDE for Java EE Developers". Standard Eclipse package suited for Java and plug-in development plus adding new plugins; already includes Git, Marketplace Client, source code and developer documentation Click here to file a bug against Eclipse Platform.. On the other hand, SourceTree is detailed as "A free Git GUI client for Windows and macOS". Use the full capability of Git and Mercurial in the SourceTree desktop app. Manage all your repositories, hosted or local, through SourceTree's simple interface.
Eclipse belongs to "Integrated Development Environment" category of the tech stack, while SourceTree can be primarily classified under "Source Code Management Desktop Apps".
"Does it all", "Integrates with most of tools" and "Easy to use" are the key factors why developers consider Eclipse; whereas "Visual history and branch view", "Beautiful UI" and "Easy repository browsing" are the primary reasons why SourceTree is favored.
Zillow, PedidosYa, and Coderus are some of the popular companies that use SourceTree, whereas Eclipse is used by PedidosYa, hike, and Webedia. SourceTree has a broader approval, being mentioned in 615 company stacks & 400 developers stacks; compared to Eclipse, which is listed in 248 company stacks and 138 developer stacks.
UPDATE: Thanks for the great response. I am going to start with VSCode based on the open source and free version that will allow me to grow into other languages, but not cost me a license ..yet.
Pycharm is great for python development, but can feel sometimes slow and community version has Somme very annoying restrictions (like they disabled jupyter notebooks plugin and made it premium feature). I personally started looking into VS Code as an alternative, and it has some very good potential. I suggest you take it into account.
The Community version of PyCharm is free and should give you what you need to get started with Python. Both PyCharm and IntelliJ are made by JetBrains. IntelliJ is initially focused on Java but you can get plugins for lots of other things. I subscribe to JetBrains' Toolbox: https://www.jetbrains.com/toolbox-app/ and have access to all of their great tools.
Hi, I will give my opinion based on my experience. I have used PyCharm, both community and Professional version. The community has limited functions, like you can't use a Jupyter notebook whereas it's available in the Professional version. PyCharm is slower compared to Visual Studio Code. Also Visual Studio Code is an editor which supports various languages. I myself have used both Visual Studio Code and PyCharm. I feel Visual Studio Code would be better choice. You may as well decide based upon your requirements.
Visual Studio code is easy to use, has a good UI, and a large community. Python works great with it, but unlike some other editors, it works with most languages either by default or by downloading a plugin. VS Code has built in linting, syntax coloring, autocompletes (IntelliSense), and an api for plugins to do there own tooling.
If you starting with Python then PyCharm is better. For Java I would suggest to go with IntelliJ IDEA but people also prefer eclipse so I would say try both and then decide. For JS/Angular/React I would suggest go with VSCode. I personally use it and prefer as its light weight and have good integration with chrome for frontend development.
PyCharm, IntelliJ IDEA are both products of JetBrains. They have a free (limited feature) and paid edition. Eclipse is free. VSCode is also free.
Pycharm is all you need to get start coding in python or any of its framework. Its an awesome tool you should give it a try :)
I originally chose IntelliJ over Eclipse, as it was close enough to the look and feel of Visual Studio and we do go back and forth between the two. We really begin to love IntelliJ and their suite of IDEs so we are now using AppCode for the IOS development because the workflow is identical with the IntelliJ. IntelliJ is super complex and intimidating at first but it does afford a lot of nice utilities to get us produce clean code.
I explored many Git Desktop tools for the Mac and my final decision was to use Fork. What I love about for that it contains three features, I like about a Git Client tool.
It allows * to handle day to day git operations (least important for me as I am cli junkie) * it helps to investigate the history * most important of all, it has a repo manager which many other tools are missing.

Develop and debug Java code using standard Eclipse distribution. No special plugins; standard Maven and Git integration.
Self taught : acquired knowledge or skill on one's own initiative. Platform: OSX 10.8 or later, Windows 7 & 10' Linux
Used by various PrometheanTV technical staff to interface and interact with the Git Source Control service.
I use as Java IDE for Spring. A packaged eclipse version exists. It was called STS (Spring Tool Suite).
Since being familiar to git CLI, I nearly never open it again except using it as a diff tool.
Used Source Tree to maintain version / commit / pull request , merge of codes for a team.
