Article: Python Resources
If I might suggest an addition to the list, I found this tutorial a good synthetic reference:
Heres another great source from MIT open course ware website to check out a whole semester intro to programming video lectures with python. you may want to post above
I want to throw in a few more code editors, for people who don't want a full blown IDE. The first two I think are great for beginners, and the third (Vim) is for people who love the modal interface in Rhino and want a scriptable command line interface for text editing. I would NOT recommend Vim to a beginner.
- Notepad++ - A simple code editor for Windows
- E TextEditor - Comparable to TextMate, but for Windows
- Vim - A simple, powerful cross-platform text editor with a steep learning curve. I recommend gVim for windows or MacVim for Mac.
Here are two more similar to Notepad++, I'm sure the list can go on and on but I thought they deserved to be listed.
- PS Pad - Have used on many of my standard installs for years.
- Context - Used this for a while also, but stopped using when I found PS Pad.
I recommend you to add an API to the editor. Or do like processing, thus making any exterior editor workable for python in rhino.
