PythonMonk is an online browser-based tool to learn Python, created by C42 Engineering.
Can't try it out right now because I am on my mobile, but will check it later today and update this post with initial impressions.Update: I tried out the first page of lessons on PythonMonk (on a PC) and it worked fine.
A couple of observations:
- It supports the Python use of docstrings in a function as tests. It runs the tests and checks if they succeed or fail.
- The lesson runs include mildly amusing Zennish comments, like from a master to a student :-)
Also check my earlier posts about other tools roughly similar to PythonMonk:
repl.it, an online REPL for many languages
codepad.org, executable multi-language pastebin, in Python
There's a Hacker News thread about Python Monk.
I also tried out this code that one HN reader (on that thread) did:
__import__("os").execv("/usr/bin/uname", ["uname", "-a"])and got about the same result as them:
Linux ip-10-166-37-168 2.6.32-amazon-xen-r3 #1 SMP Mon Jan 16 21:03:16 PST 2012 i686 GNU/Linux, from which it looks like PythonMonk is running on AWS (Amazon Web Services).
