Python not working the same way in Visual Studio Code


#1

Hello guys! :slight_smile:
I just started programming, and i am not doing the “Learn Python Course” - I learn a lot of new stuff, and i love the guide - the problem is just that whenever i learn something, and wanna try it out on my programming app, it dosent work eventho i write the exact same code. I use Visual Studio Code, and it is off course linked up with Python - is it because they use another kind of language that isnt Visual Studio Code? What is the name of that language? - Sorry if i the solution is obvious or im just stupid, as i said before im totally new :stuck_out_tongue:

visual studio code is just an editor, you write the python code in. Executing the python code requires the python interpreter. Maybe there is a difference between the python interpreter between codecademy and your system? Just like with other software, there are different python versions


#3

Do you know how im able to fix it?


#4

yes, but i gave you big clue already (python version), the more steps you take yourself, the better you are learning

Hi, I have same problem,
what’s codecademy Python version?


#6

And why don’t different versions don’t understand same code ?,

I mean if I put 2+2 in one thusand different calculators, all of them will understand simbols, operators and return 4,

Is that difficult to do in code languages?
It’s frustrating


#7
import sys
print sys.version

that should help you find out what version codecademy is running

programming has never been simple, and it never will


#8

You can type the code in vs code
Open the integrated terminal with ctrl + '
And then write python <file name>
use python command to use python 2
Codecademy uses python 2
If you want to use python 3, write python3
