Our recommendation[edit]

On Mac OS, we suggest the TextMate 2 text editor. You'll have to first download it, then install it.

To download TextMate 2:

To install TextMate 2:

  • Start Finder
  • On the left side of the Finder, under "Places", click on "Applications".
  • Drag the TextMate 2 icon from Desktop to any blank space in that window.

To run TextMate 2:

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

If you run into trouble with TextMate 2[edit]

If you can't run the version of TextMate we recommend, you can try a different editor. Try to let us know if that happens to you.

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 tutorial.
