Thonny simplified Python IDE for learners
« on: December 23, 2017, 08:04 PM »
A non-coder friend of mine is curious about learning python, and we found this nice looking (free) tool for her:

Looks like a really nice clean distraction-free beginner ide/scratchpad for experimenting with Python.



Easy to get started. Thonny comes with Python 3.6 built in, so just one simple installer is needed and you're ready to learn programming. (You can also use a separate Python installation, if necessary.) The initial user interface is stripped of all features that may distract beginners.
