PyEdit — Edit Text. Run Code. Have Fun.


Welcome to the products page for PyEdit. PyEdit is a text-editor and code-launcher GUI written in Python/Tk, that can be used as both standalone program and library component. It can serve as your go-to text editor, as well as a lightweight IDE that runs Python code and other content. For quick screenshots plus a brief overview of PyEdit's features, see its User Guide's Introducing PyEdit.
