Crunchy can be used to browse and interact with Python tutorials on the web. In this video, recorded with iShowU, I demonstrate the steps required so that you can use Crunchy to interact with the official Python tutorial.

Hello Mr. Roberge ;

I love your work .

I am a die hard supporter of Open Source.

I love the people who are working for human good.

I am very impressed by Crunchy.

Although I am leaning python now.

I have promised myself that I will pay my knowledge back to world one day.

Will be glad to see more of your work.

This looks promesing

WONDERFUL!! Thanks for your contribution. This really helps me in my quest to learn Python.

Review of The quickest path to learning Python using Crunchy

This is a short and very straight-forward introduction to starting with Cruncy on any platform using Firefox.

I do love seeing how Crunchy adds the Python interpreter in-line into the webpage...this is so powerful.

Nice job André,


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.
