Pippy

Introduction

Pippy is a simple integrated development environment (IDE) for the Python programming language. It provides a menu of sample files, a text editing window, and simple controls for running and stopping the selected code.

More Info: See the Activities/Pippy page in the wiki.

There is a list of Python resources in the Activity Team pages.
