There currently isn’t a way to ‘get’ at the Scripting API functions for insertion as code-completion in an IDE. It’s one of those things, which would be nice to add at some point, but more important requests always come along!
Sublime Text IDE is my personal weapon of choice as it’s faster than a fully blown VS IDE for Python dev. Sublime provides auto code-completion for everything in the currently open py file, which is handy unless you have a blank file. The Python IDE market is quite fragmented, everyone has an opinion.
