0:00 We're going to need a proper editor
0:01 to write Python code when we're working locally.
0:04 Again, it doesn't make any sense
0:06 or it's not really a feature of Anvil to use a local
0:09 editor against our remote Anvil code.
0:12 That's what anvil.works and the whole Editor Online is there
0:16 and what that's all about, but again
0:18 we're going to work on some local client-side applications
0:21 that talk to our server code through APIs that we're
0:23 going to create during this course.
0:25 For that, we're going to need an editor
0:27 so I recommend that you check out PyCharm
0:28 that's my favorite, that's what I'm going to be using.
0:31 Close second would be VS Code with the Python plugin.
0:35 Those are both really good options.
0:36 We're going to use PyCharm.
0:37 You should be able to use the Community Edition
0:39 the free edition of PyCharm for this course.
