Simple and clean pip GUI. Select Tools → Manage packages for even easier installation of 3rd party packages. Thonny is an IDE for learning and teaching programming, specially designed with the beginner Pythonista scripting environment. It is developed at The University of Tartu, which you can download for free on the Bitbucket repository for Windows, Linux, and Mac. These downloadable files require little configuration, work on almost all setups, and provide all the commonly used scientific python tools. Anaconda works on Windows, Mac, and Linux, provides over 1,500 Python/R packages, and is used by over 15 million people. Anaconda is best suited to beginning users; it provides a large collection of. Python is a widely-used general-purpose, high-level programming language. This article will serve as a complete tutorial on How to download and install Python latest version on macOS / Mac OS X. Like Linux, macOS also comes with Python pre-installed on the system. It might be Python version 2 or some similar outdated version.

Features

Easy to get started. Thonny comes with Python 3.7 built in, so just one simple installer is needed and you're ready to learn programming. (You can also use a separate Python installation, if necessary.) The initial user interface is stripped of all features that may distract beginners.

No-hassle variables. Once you're done with hello-worlds, select View → Variables and see how your programs and shell commands affect Python variables.

Simple debugger. Just press Ctrl+F5 instead of F5 and you can run your programs step-by-step, no breakpoints needed. Press F6 for a big step and F7 for a small step. Steps follow program structure, not just code lines.

Step through expression evaluation. If you use small steps, then you can even see how Python evaluates your expressions. You can think of this light-blue box as a piece of paper where Python replaces subexpressions with their values, piece-by-piece.

Faithful representation of function calls. Stepping into a function call opens a new window with separate local variables table and code pointer. Good understanding of how function calls work is especially important for understanding recursion.

Highlights syntax errors. Unclosed quotes and parentheses are the most common beginners' syntax errors. Thonny's editor makes these easy to spot.

Explains scopes. Highlighting variable occurrences reminds you that the same name doesn't always mean the same variable and helps spotting typos. Local variables are visually distinguished from globals.

Mode for explaining references. Variables are initially presented according to simplified model (name → value) but you can switch to more realistic model (name → address/id → value).

Code completion. Students can explore APIs with the help of code completion.

Beginner friendly system shell. Select Tools → Open system shell to install extra packages or learn handling Python on command line. PATH and conflicts with other Python interpreters are taken care of by Thonny.

Simple and clean pip GUI. Select Tools → Manage packages for even easier installation of 3rd party packages.

Credits

From 2014 to 2018 the main development of Thonny took place in Institute of Computer Science of University of Tartu, Estonia.


Since September 2018 development of Thonny is partially supported by Cybernetica AS.


Development of several features in Thonny 3.0 and 3.3 was proposed and supported by Raspberry Pi Foundation.

We are also grateful for the help of several contributors from the open-source community around the world.

Using Anaconda in a commercial setting? You may need to purchase a license to stay compliant with our Terms of Service. This can be accomplished through Anaconda Commercial Edition, Anaconda Team Edition, or Anaconda Enterprise. If you have already purchased Commercial Edition, please proceed to the Authenticating Commercial Edition section after completing your installation here.

Haven’t purchased Commercial Edition yet? Visit https://anaconda.cloud/register to get started.

You can install Anaconda using either the graphical installer (“wizard”) or thecommand line (“manual”) instructions below. If you are unsure, choose the graphical install.

macOS graphical install¶

  1. Download the graphical macOS installer for your version of Python.

  2. RECOMMENDED: Verify data integrity with SHA-256.For more information on hashes, see What about cryptographic hash verification?

  3. Double-click the downloaded file and click continue to start the installation.

  4. Answer the prompts on the Introduction, Read Me, and License screens.

  5. Click the Install button to install Anaconda in your ~/opt directory (recommended):

  6. OR, click the Change Install Location button to install in another location (not recommended).

    On the Destination Select screen, select Install for me only.

    Note

    If you get the error message “You cannot install Anaconda in this location,” reselect Install for me only.

  7. Click the continue button.

  8. Optional: To install PyCharm for Anaconda, click on the link to https://www.anaconda.com/pycharm.

    Or to install Anaconda without PyCharm, click the Continue button.

  9. A successful installation displays the following screen:

  10. Verify your installation.

Using the command-line install¶

Use this method if you prefer to use a terminal window.

  1. In your browser, download the command-line version of themacOS installer for your system.

  2. RECOMMENDED: Verify data integrity with SHA-256.For more information on hash verification, see cryptographic hash validation.

    • Open a terminal and run the following:

    Note

    Replace /path/filename with your installation’s path and filename.

  3. Install for Python 3.7 or 2.7:

    • For Python 3.7 enter the following:

    • For Python 2.7, open the Terminal.app or iTerm2 terminal application and then enter the following:

    Note

    Include the bash command regardless of whether or not you are using the Bash shell.

    Note

    Replace ~/Downloads with your actual path and Anaconda3-2020.02-MacOSX-x86_64.sh with actual name of the file you downloaded.

  4. The installer prompts “In order to continue the installation process, please review the license agreement.”Click Enter to view the license terms.

  5. Scroll to the bottom of the license terms and enter yes to agree to them.

  6. The installer prompts you to Press Enter to confirm the location, Press CTRL-C to cancel the installationor specify an alternate installation directory. If you confirm the default location,it will display PREFIX=/home/<user>/anaconda<2or3> and continue the installation.

    Note

    Unlike the graphical install, installing the shell file will place it in ~/anaconda<2 or 3> by default,not ~/opt. This is due to limitations with installing .pkg files on macOS Catalina.

    Installation may take a few minutes to complete.

    Note

    We recommend you accept the default install location. Do not choose the path as /usr for theAnaconda/Miniconda installation.

  7. The installer prompts “Do you wish the installer to initialize Anaconda3by running conda init?” We recommend “yes”.

    Note

    If you enter “no”, then conda will not modify your shell scripts at all.In order to initialize after the installation process is done, first runsource<pathtoconda>/bin/activate and then run condainit.

    Note

    If you are on macOS Catalina, the new default shell is zsh.You will instead need to run source<pathtoconda>/bin/activatefollowed by condainitzsh.

  8. The installer displays “Thank you for installing Anaconda!”

  9. Optional: The installer describes the partnership between Anaconda and JetBrains andprovides a link to install PyCharm for Anaconda athttps://www.anaconda.com/pycharm.

  10. Close and open your terminal window for the Anaconda installation to take effect.

  11. To control whether or not each shell session has the base environmentactivated or not, run condaconfig--setauto_activate_baseFalseorTrue. To run conda from anywhere without having the base environmentactivated by default, use condaconfig--setauto_activate_baseFalse.This only works if you have run condainit first.

    Note

    condainit is available in conda versions 4.6.12 and later.

  12. Verify your installation.
