IDLE-dev -- IDLE development


About IDLE-dev
English (USA)

This mailing list is for development of IDLE, Python's Integrated Development and Learning Environment.

Questions about using IDLE, and especially those about Python, how to use it, and how to install and import 3rd-party modules, should be directed elsewhere, such as: IDLE's docs; general discussion of Python; answers to python questions at Stackoverflow.

IDLE's use in education is the subject of the EDU-SIG.

Instead of subscribing to IDLE-dev (see below), one can point a news reader, included in many email clients, to and add group gmane.comp.python.idle.
