> Hello Sugar friends!
> As perhaps some of you are aware, I've been working on an Activity for web
> programming in Python.
> I think Python is a wonderful language for learning programming and have
> always found installing Python itself a barrier. Now we can work directly
> in a browser and programs will run in anywhere with very little overhead,
> at very reasonable speeds!
> Currently Jappy Activity has the following features:
>    - Python 3 syntax and comparable performance
>    - Tabbed Code editor with syntax highlighting and Solarized color
>    scheme
>    - Supports multiple files using Python's *import *syntax
>    - Six examples demonstrating language and API features:
>       - Mandala Maker
>       - Memorize Game
>       - Emoji Selector 👽
>       - ... more! by me and soon, *you! 😉*
>       - Yes, it has built in support for ~900 Emojis you can use directly
>    in your code!
>    - Run your creations in full screen!
>    - Runs on Webkit2 / Chrome / Firefox browser engines (IE not tested)
>    - Gives access to HTML5, CSS3 *and* Javascript
>    - Saves session in Sugar or Sugarizer Journal if available
>    - Export to .zip (compiled JS code + source)
>    - Import from .zip or as individual files
>    - Jappy library offers browser friendly *print*, *inputAsync,
>    clearScreen* statements
>    - Jappy itself is written in Python / RapydScript
>    - Experimental standalone Android build and .XO bundle
> Under the hood, Jappy uses the excellently supported RapydScript-NG
> compiler by Kovid Goyal (the author of Calibre e-book manager). This means
> that although the Python semantics are well supported, the "batteries
> included" actually come from Javascript-land. You may use any Javascript
> library from Jappy. It's a fun way to program the browser and get over the
> quirks of Javascript.
> I would sincerely appreciate your feedback and testing for this tool which
> I plan to put to good use in our Artisan Videogame Workshop. Special thanks
> to Laura Vargas, as well as our two children Inti and Mariana, for their
> enthusiastic testing, feedback, design direction, support and patience.
> This edition, version 1, "Mother's Day Edition" is dedicated to all three
> of them. 👪

Thank you my dear Sebastian!!!

It's been a great journey! Jappy has become not only a fun toy for our
children but also a great tool for them to start modifying the code.

Definitely made with love. 💟💟

> With your testing and any fixes that result, I hope to offer a pull
> request for it to be included in Sugarizer.
> You can try Jappy directly at:
>     http://people.sugarlabs.org/~icarito/artisan/Jappy.activity/
> Or clone the repository and try it standalone at:
>     https://github.com/somosazucar/artisan
> Experimental Android and Sugar builds are at:
>     https://github.com/somosazucar/artisan/releases/tag/v1
> Looking forward to reading your impressions, have a nice week!
