Python Environment Setup, Download & Install Python Software, Set Python Environment Variable, Download & Install PyCharm IDE, and configure the Development Environment.
Python Programming Environment Setup
Python Environment or Python Programming Environment or Python Development Environment for writing & executing (running) Python programs.
Python Programming Environment for developing Python Software Applications.
The programming environment consists of an Editor for writing programs and a Compiler or Interpreter to compile the Programs.
We have three major steps in Computer Programming,
1. Write Programs
2. Compile the Programs
3. Run/Execute the Programs
Only two major steps in the case of Scripting (Lightweight) Languages like Python.
1. Write Programs
2. Run/Execute the Programs
Note: Programs automatically compile while running.
You just Install Python Software To Learn or Practice it. After Installation, you can get Python IDLE or Shell to write & run Python Programs.
Steps for Python Installation:
> Launch Python Official Website (python.org)
> Download your Operating system compatible Python Software. (Ex: Windows OS)
> Install Python Software on MS Windows 64 bit OS
Set Environment Variable Path whie Installation
Note: After Installation, launch Python IDLE (Shell) from the Windows Start menu, and Write Python Programs using Interactive mode or File mode.
You Install PyCharm IDE or any other Python-supported IDE to To develop Python Software Applications.
Note: Python IDLE (it is built-in with Python Installation) is enough to learn Python programming, but for commercial use Install PyCharm IDE for Python.
Steps for PyCharm IDE Installation:
> First Install Download & Install Python Software from “www.python.org”
> Next, Download PyCharm IDE community version from “https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/download/#section=windows”
> Installation PyCharm IDE, while installation, create a Python Project, add Python Interpreter path to the Python project.
> Customize PyCharm IDE (we can integrate other software with Python in this IDE)
> Start writing Python Programs
PyCharm is an integrated development environment (IDE) used in computer programming, specifically for the Python language. It is developed by the Czech company JetBrains (formerly known as IntelliJ).
PyCharm IDE provides code analysis, a graphical debugger, an integrated unit tester, integration with version control systems (VCSes), and supports web development with Django as well as data science with Anaconda.
PyCharm is cross-platform, with Windows, macOS, and Linux versions. The Community Edition is released under the Apache License, and there is also a Professional Edition with extra features – released under a proprietary license.
