I'm using spyder: https://code.google.com/p/spyderlib/

it is a multiplataform IDE with autocompletition and much more, but
you need to install:

pyflakes v0.5.0+ (real-time code analysis)
rope 0.9.2+ (editor code completion, calltips and go-to-definition)
sphinx 0.6+ (object inspector’s rich text mode)
numpy (N-dimensional arrays)
scipy (signal/image processing)
matplotlib (2D/3D plotting)
psutil 0.3+ (memory/CPU usage in status bar)

Optional modules:

IPython 0.13 (enhanced Python interpreter)
pylint (code analysis)
pep8 (style analysis)
