Is it possible to run python idle on cloud 9?


Do the python workspaces support idle? I created a python workspace but idle is not available.

Thank you in advance.


Do you mean the REPL >>> ? You should be able to. If you mean Idle with the editor then I am unsure.


I am specifically referring to IDLE.


I think you misunderstand the point of C9 It’s meant to replace an IDE such as IDLE. Typically you create files in the C9 file browser save them as .PY and then run them using a runner, when you save the .PY extention syntax highlighting for Python is generated much like it is in IDLE. Hope this helps!


by REPL i meant the python shell
