Nice work! I thought I'd write a quick note for anyone slow, like me, who

> 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
> - 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)
> - 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
> library from Jappy. It's a fun way to program the browser and get over the
> 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. 👪
> 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:
> Or clone the repository and try it standalone at:
> Experimental Android and Sugar builds are at:
> Looking forward to reading your impressions, have a nice week!
