An educational environment for learning Python, suitable for beginners and children. Inspired by LOGO.
An Appealing Environment to Learn Python
PythonTurtle strives to provide the lowest-threshold way to learn Python. Students command an interactive Python shell (similar to the IDLE development environment) and use Python functions to move a turtle displayed on the screen.
An illustrated help screen introduces the student to the basics of Python programming while demonstrating how to move the turtle. Simplicity and a colorful visual appearance makes the learning environment more appealing to students.
sudo apt-get install -y python3-wxgtk4.0
python3 -m pip install wxpython
On any GNU/Linux distribution: (after installing prerequisites from above)
python3 -m pip install --user PythonTurtle PythonTurtle
If you're into automation:
Ansible tasks for setting up PythonTurtle including a desktop shortcut for GNOME.
ImportError: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Tested with Python version 3.6 and wxPython version 4.0.1. Reported to run on Windows, macOS, Ubuntu Linux, and Fedora.
git clone https://github.com/PythonTurtle/PythonTurtle.git cd PythonTurtle python3 -m pythonturtle
