Good editor for python

 ????? People rave about Jupyter Notebooks, which reportedly allow you 
to mix narrative with code describing what you are doing and why.

 ????? I primarily program in R, and RMarkdown Documents in RStudio 
allow me to mix narrative with R and Python code.? I explain what I'm 
doing and why, then write "```{python}" ... "```" to encapsulate a 
Python code snippet and "```{r}" ... "```" for an R code snippet. Or I 
just use the Idle editor that comes with Python.

 ????? Someone suggested that Apache Zeppelin? and / or BeakerX might be 
able to do this also, but I've not tried or verified them.
