    You do not have to - all Mac's comes with Python preinstalled. You can just user the terminal window and type: "Python" and you are in. And, of course, you can use TextEdit or something else to write longer Python scripts and save as files. Hope this helps...

    This is a script that will invoke idle on my 10.5.8 laptop: #!/bin/bash /usr/bin/python /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/idlelib/idle.py & exit 0

    You are better off using a text editor on mac such as textmate or AptanaStudio3

    You can just type 'idle' from the Terminal command line.
