GNU Emacs also competes for the title of the best Python editor. It’s often described as an extendable, self-documenting editor with an on-the-go display. First post teach to be happy birthday wishes. Though not entirely new in the industry, Emacs is constantly upgraded to meet developers’ needs. Compatibility: Windows, Linux, Mac OS, IOS, Android, UNIX, AmigaOS, and MorphOS.
On Mac, the most popular text editor is BBEdit (of which TextWrangler is a free version). Every Windows installation comes with Notepad, but some excellent replacements to consider are Notepad2, Notepad, and TextPad. On Linux/Unix, many opt for using GEdit or Kate, although others opt for JOE or another editor. Nano is a basic editor and the default that instructors use in the workshop. See the Git installation video tutorial for an example on how to open nano. It should be pre-installed. Others editors that you can use are Text Wrangler or Sublime Text.
SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character 'xe2' in hello_world.py on line 1, but no encoding declared; see http://python.org/dev/peps/pep-0263/ for details
I am using TextEdit in plain text mode. The document was saved in UTF-8, and I still get the error message. I tried switching to Western ASCII encoding, but once I start typing, I get a message stating that the document can no longer be saved using its original Western (ASCII) encoding.
Any suggestions for a good open source text editor for the Mac out there? For now, I am going to stick with vim.
