The Repl.it IDE
In this course, we will use the Repl.it IDE. This web-based IDE requires no installation, which means that you can begin programming in Python immediately. We will use this IDE throughout the course. On the page, you should see two windows arranged side-by-side in columns. In this unit, we will focus on the rightmost window. This window has a command line prompt, which is indicated by the
>. We can type basic Python commands using this command prompt. As we progress through the course,
we will start to use the middle and left windows.
