Which editor is suited for view a python package's source?

Uh oh.  Editor wars.

The most popular choices today are probably PyCharm and VSCode.  I prefer
vim with the syntastic plugin (and a few other plugins including Jedi), but
I've heard good things about the other two.  And emacs almost certainly can
edit/view Python files well, though I haven't heard much about that.
