As a signal processing scientist, I used to use MATLAB to prototype my algorithms until I discovered the benefits of using Python. So, I searched for good Python IDEs, but each failed to fulfil my requirements in some way. For example, some were bloated (e.g., PyCharm, Eclipse), some with limited capabilities for plotting and debugging (e.g., Spyder). Then, I decided to look for different tools, which together could work as a highly customised Python IDE. I have not found anything better for my needs for a long time, so I decided to share the guide Matide with the community.
