Hiya Shaliq! I think you mean IDEs which stands for Integrated Development environment. There are so many IDEs out there to choose from , and not just for Python , you can literally code in any languages in 'em IDEs. The best IDE for Python is PyCharm. Its free and easy to use. I'll link you to the Pycharm community version. Just download it on your machine and start coding offline.

Here is the link:


Scroll down until you see the "comparison" part of the page and there is a download link for PyCharm Community Version which a free one. And there is also paid one called PyCharm Professional version. PyCharm community is light weight and perfect for learning.

Infact, there is a workshop course for PyCharm on Treehouse. You can check out the course in library section of Python, where Kenneth walks ya through how to get familiar with PyCharm.

There are other great IDEs out there as well , lik Atom(by GitHub) , VS Code, Sublime Text etc. I'll link you to these IDEs as well. They all are free and great and easy to use.

Here are the links:



VS Code


Sublime Text 3


thank u

jupyter notebook is also another option.

You can also just download python on your computer

Just remember often times you will have to download the workspace from the workspace client to get the correct code. I've often downloaded project files only to find out they did not reflect the code in the lesson.

Good luck

Among all available pycharm (JetBrains) works like a spark, but if you want an IDE to work with many programming languages along with python then go with Visual studio2017.
