The Python Usage and Setup documentation lists how to use Python in different environments: 
1. command line
2. Unix
3. Windows
4. MacOS

Under "Unix" environment there is a section for Editors and IDE, which actually links to external links like https://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonEditors that has more comprehensive list of editors across various platforms.

It would be great if the Editors & IDE section is not tied to the "Unix environment" section, which might got skipped if the reader is a Windows or Mac user. There are IDEs and Editors for those platforms too!

Should have included the link, but I can't edit issue.
Here's the page which I think could be improved. https://docs.python.org/3/using/index.html

Thanks for the PR! There's conflict to the 2.7 branch, but I'm not motivated enough to fix it there.

just guessing ... in 2.7 unix.rst has '\ No newline at end of file'

it's your enhancement/call, but indeed no need to put energy in 2.7 doc anymore. case closed
