While it’s currently in beta format, the editor can handle Python scripts. More coding languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are planned to be added “in the near future.”

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has launched a free coding tool to help next-generation programmers globally hone their skills.

The Code Editor is accessible on any platform through a Web browser and is designed for children over seven who attend the foundation's Code Clubs or CodeDojos.

The beta-format editor can handle Python scripts, which the foundation said is often preferred because of its English-language resemblance and popularity among professional coders.

Users are able to broaden the editor's use by creating an account to save and revisit work, enabling homework or general experiments outside the classroom.
