Homebrew to the rescue--part two
Been having a terrible time lately with Text Wrangler in my Python class. For some reason, Text Wrangler is causing a ton of problems handling whitespace correctly. Of course we already Googled the heck out of the issue, set the expand tabs, etc.... The problem, however, is that TW is simply not that great if you've ever used Geany.
So now I at least have Geany on my MacBook. Testing it for the lab.
Hard to blame students for being frustrated with a ton of "unexpected indent" errors.
I teach Computer Science at a progressive public high school, using mostly open source tools. I improvise a lot and spend most of my time working with students and writing code in Python, Java, Obj-C, LISP....
