Good script editor for Python on Mac OS 10.3

P: n/a
Hi,

I have an old Mac with OS X Panther installed. I also have the Python
language download file, but I haven't got a text/script editor to use
for it. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good Python text
editor in OS 10.3?

Thanks,

Scott D.

Try TextWrangler. It's free. I use it's big brother BBEdit and like it.

As a long-time Vim user I still vote for shelling out the Euros for TextMate.

Fabulous editor...
fabulous support...
fabulous community.

I didn't see "free" in your post, so why not try TextMate?

I work with Python on mac os 10.3.9

First of all :

Install a newer version of python for mac, from

http://pythonmac.org/packages/

(python 2.4.4 -http://pythonmac.org/packages/py24-fat/index.html)
(python 2.5 -http://pythonmac.org/packages/py25-fat/index.html)

you have a more "standard" python which allows you to install the
modules n a more conventional way

I use Smultron (free and open source) or textmate
