Python in your browser


Without installing: online Python - requires javascript-enabled browser. Please don't abuse this site - if you want to use Python for experimenting, install it.


Install Python


Activestate version - containing some customizations for Windows.



  • ActiveState - more optimized for Windows. I recommend this one. Check their Komodo editor too.
  • from Python.org - but you need to ser up environment variables by hand, and add IDLE


After dowloading the installer, double-click to run downloaded .exe file.



rjseagraves from Ubuntu forums says: "Python is installed on the Mac by default, but usually about a minor version behind the latest stable python release. Instead, download a version of IDLE that includes the latest python release at http://www.python.org/download/mac "

On Linux

Python is installed by default on all distros I know about. If not, follow install guide for your distribution.

Python on Live CD

You can also download and burn UbuntuLiveCD and run python directly from it (and later use it to install Ubuntu).

Python IDE

On Linux, you may want to install IDLE - simple Python IDE. On Windows, it is included in installer. See PythonIDE for more


Check if Python is Installed OK


  • Open terminal window and type 'python', or
  • Find Python IDE (called IDLE) in program menu and run it.
