Yes, though Pascal is now a fringe language. I was mostly ranting about best IDEs Python has such as PyCharm, where one has to go back and forth between Qt Designer, some command-line compilation stuff and PyCharm. It feels like some ancient way to waste time doing trivial stuff instead of getting app done quickly.

Ha! I feel your pain. That's what I ended up doing for an application a few years ago, wrote a Python script to compile the Qt Designer generated code to Python code [0]

Going back and forth between Qt Designer and PyDev was (is?) ancient. Unfortunately I couldn't find a way to automate the compilation step (perhaps with a hook from Qt Designer?)
