I use any editor. Usually emacs terminal or xed.
To copy my code to the pyboard i have a flash script or i use rshell.
To debug i use serial terminal screen to host a REPL prompt.
I think you can use pyboard.py to "run a program on your laptop" and monitor the output that way

The editor mu has been designed to program microbit but hosts a few different boards has a debug button

MicroPython does not have a debugger. Pure Python code can be debugged on a PC under CPython before running it under MicroPython. Where this is impractical (e.g. you're running on a Pyboard) debug it the old skool way with print statements and/or logging.
