Python IDE on the Web

Hi all,

What’s the best Python online IDE to use on the Web?
Preferably a free resource.

I found: https://www.online-python.com/ , and it seems to work well.
Any better alternatives out there?

Regards
Lee

I would suggest

Colab - https://colab.research.google.com/notebooks/intro.ipynb

Or

repl.it - https://repl.it/languages/python3

I looked at both links. But neither look as good as https://www.online-python.com/

For me I use colab too because I can use the GPU when training Deep Neural Networks. Loading of datasets is also much simpler (don’t have to keep uploading the data once you clear the runtime). Here are some articles which you may find useful.

  1. Loading csvs
  2. Loading datasets–can be used for image folders too

Hi, I am disgustingly new to this and have a question that I think might embarrass me later. But I can’t find the answer on my own so I hope someone can clarify things for me.
In this beginner tutorial that I am using as a reference, the author mentioned the use of an IDE for python and I don’t seem to understand what exactly that is.

I am using Mu to practice, do I still need to download an IDE as well?

Or am I completely misunderstanding what an IDE is?

I’m a bit confused

Hello, @goring.asiasol !

You don’t actually need an IDE to code in Python, but it can certainly help in many areas (refactoring, autocompletion, organization, overview of your project and many more). Some of the most used IDE’s for Python are Visual Studio (Code), PyCharm or Jupyter Notebooks (for the basic needs, they are more or less the same). The con is mainly that they need some minimal time for configuration, but for me it is worth it.
