Is there any Python Ide available from which we can remotely connect to pi (using ssh) and can write python script or debug from windows. I have already done this using eclipse here but this connection also has an issue wherein it do not support the intellisense and thus auto complete do not work.

Is there any alternative to this where we can have the functionality of autocomplete and can also write/debug python scripts from windows to pi. Please help. Thanks

  • Current version of VSCode has a remote function. I have had a look at it, but can't remember if it supports remote debugging.

  • Be interesting to see if the Pi 4 runs VSC well now code.headmelted.com but remote debugging is available and the last walkthrough I used was hanselman.com/blog/… (not done any dev for a few months so it may a bit cleaner now.

You can try using PyCharm. It supports both Windows and Linux.
It has a remote debug feature (not free). You can have a trial license for 30-day.

  • PyCharm community edition is free.
