Program Python in a web browser

Want to try your hand at a new programming language without the hassle of downloading and installing it? Well, now you can with Python thanks to Sculpt. The project is still in an early phase, but they note that they intend to support as much of the language as possible (and full source code is available, if you’re interested).

If Python isn’t your game, why not try Ruby, Basic or even Logo? These would be a good way to get some practice in when you’re on the road! Does your favorite programming language have an online version?

      Aha, cool site. The part that interested me the most is that this Python interpreter is written in Javascript, so it actually runs in your browser instead of on a remote build machine. I guess it’s not complete enough to be useful yet, however there are interpreters for other languages that are more fully developed.

  2. Jimmy says:

    Very incomplete at this stage. A better example would be the IronPython web console (although it requires Silverlight)

    If you are on a Mac, don’t forget that python (and perl, ruby, and perhaps others) come with the OS. Just fire up and get going!

    One of my favorite languages is JavaScript… of course it’s available in my browser :)
