Tutorial: Getting Started

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Tutorial »

To get started using this tutorial, you will need to:

Install Python

If you don't already have it on your system, install Python from python.org. Wing also supports Python provided by Anaconda ActivePython, MacPorts, Fink, Homebrew, cygwin, and others. See Supported Python Versions for details.

Install Wing

Then install Wing. For detailed instructions, see Installing Wing.

Start Wing

Wing can be started from a menu, desktop, or tray icon, or by using the command line executable. For detailed instructions, see Running Wing. If you are using Wing Pro and don't have a license, you can obtain a free 30-day trial (divided into three 10-day periods) the first time you start Wing.

Switch to the Integrated Tutorial

Once Wing is running, you should switch to using the Tutorial listed in Wing's Help menu because it contains links directly into the IDE's functionality. This includes the next step below.

Copy the Tutorial Directory

Copy the entire tutorial directory out of your Wing installation to another location on disk.

The easiest way to do this is to launch Wing, bring up the Tutorial from the Help menu, and press the Copy Tutorial Now link that appears on this page when it is viewed inside Wing.

We welcome feedback, which can be submitted with Submit Feedback in Wing's Help menu or by emailing support@wingware.com
