Hey guys! Any recommendations for a python IDE in a chromebook? I have to get one so I can use my work in two separate places for school. It’s for a major project and I can post it here once I finish it.
Pycharm if you can, VS code works well too.
VSCode is very efficient and works like a charm, but you could also just use PyCharm. (see what I did there). Both can be installed on Linux, which is what Chromebook is based on.
Other options include:
- Notepad++ (only if you want the basics)
- Sublime text
- Atom (discontinued)
Well, most of these are general code editors. If you need specifically an IDE for Python, I recommend PyCharm. If you think something more general but with a wider range of possibilities is better, use VSC. Performance wise, VSC is very good, but I can’t tell for PYC since I don’t use it
By the way, what are you making?
It’s a short text-based adventure game with 20 rooms and you have to get through them all. Mainly for a python project due in about 4 weeks. It’s stressful though because there are some mechanics I haven’t figured out yet.
@UnsignedArduino @Sarge PyCharm didn’t work. Trying VS code right now. If that also doesnt work, probably gonna get myself a windows computer the day before I turn in my project (sarcasm hopefully that doesn’t happen)
I assume it’s played in the console then?
Why didn’t it work? I could link you some tutorials on the installation if you need? Chromebook uses ChromeOS, written specifically for the Chromebook - but it’s just a Linux distribution. Everything can be done through the terminal
Nope. It’s just a bit of code with no screen really. It’s text-based. My teacher uses IDLE as the python ide.
Well, that’s what I meant by console
I was refering to the ‘console’
And not the other ‘console’.
If that’s how you understood it haha
Haha! Yeah I knew what you were talking about. My mom let me borrow her computer and I finished my project! Probably going to share the code from the IDLE python app so y’all can look at it.
Alright yall. So the bad part is that it doesn’t carry over the tabs or the 4 spaces.
