Python Platform

Learning to code can be easy with the right Python coding platform. Codesters provides interactivity and lets students add sprites and animation so they can make engaging projects right away. Codesters provides students with a unique Drag-to-Text Toolkit™, lowering the barrier to entry so they can get started right away. Students love learning and creating projects in Python with Codesters.

Drag-to-text Toolkit

Codesters' unique Drag-to-Text Toolkit™ allows students to drag snippets of Python code into their programs. Students drag commands out of the toolkit and drop them into their programs, where the commands become text. Then students click RUN to see their program in action. What could be a lower barrier to entry than just dragging in a line of code and clicking run?

Code Editor

In Codesters, students create their programs in Python - a text-based programming language that is widely used in making web applications. Students can drag and drop commands from the toolkit, or they can also type directly into the code editor without using the toolkit. Text in the editor is color coded to help students distinguish between variables, strings, integers, functions, etc. Students learn coding syntax in a natural way because they can use the Drag-to-Text toolkit or can code directly in the code editor.

Action Bar

Codesters makes it easy for students to run their programs - they just click the green RUN button and their project runs on the stage. They can also stop their program while it is running, save their project, or share it on the Explore page.

Interactive Stage

Codesters enables students to quickly and easily create engaging projects that include graphics, animation, and interactivity. When students click RUN the visual elements of their programs take place on the stage (a JavaScript canvas). Students can create games, simulations, animations, and graphical images that appear on the stage.
