ANN: xturtle.py - a new Tkinter based turtle graphics module
xturtle.py, extended turtle graphics a new turtle graphics module for Python and Tkinter
Version 0.91 of xturtle.py has been released. A zip file containing the module and supplementary material can be found at:
xturtle should work properly on all major platforms (Mac, Linux and Windows) Feedback would be appreciated to take it into account for polishing xturtle to a final version 1.0.
xturtle.py is a module designed to help you learn and/or teach computer programming using Python. Turtle graphics provides a means for the beginning programmers to get immediate visual feedback about the correct working of her programs. It's main goal is to provide easy access to a sufficiently rich graphics toolkit.
It needs only the standard distribution of python (incl. Tkinter) and imho it (or some descendant of it) once (soon?) could (and should?) replace turtle.py which is contained in the current standard distribution.
xturtle.zip contains xturtle.py and three supplementary elements: ( 0. the module xturtle.py ). 1. set of 25+ sample scripts of great variety to show possible uses of xturtle.py 2. A simple demoViewer to run and view those sample scripts 3. documentation in form of *.txt files, which also can be viewed with the demoViewer. Docs are derived from doc strings. thus Python's help utility works fine with the module xturtle.py
