Python IDLE

To run Python program, it’s always a good option to use an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). When you will install Python, it will come bundled with IDLE. It is the Integrated Development Environment for Python. The IDLE gets installed with the Python installation since Python 1.5, and you don’t need to install any other IDE. Isn’t it, great?

IDLE is short for Integrated Development and Learning Environment and here are its features:

  • Has Python Shell
  • Cross-Platform
  • Text Editor with syntax highlighting.
  • Persistent breakpoints
  • Smart indent
