Our recommendation[edit]

On Mac OS, we suggest the Smultron text editor. You'll have to first download it, then install it.

To download Smultron:

To install Smultron:

  • Start Finder
  • On the left side of the Finder, under "Places", click on "Applications".
  • Drag the Smultron icon to any blank space in that window.

To run Smultron:

  • Start Finder
  • On the left side of the Finder, under "Places", click on "Applications".
  • In the middle column, scroll down to to find Smultron.
  • Double-click Smultron to launch the editor.

Success![edit]

Now you have an editor that you can use to open any text file, including Python programs.

If you prefer a different editor for text, check with an instructor before moving on to make sure it will work for the weekend.
