Run the JEM editor
The JythonMusic folder contains the JEM editor (JEM stands for Jython Environment for Music). You can use JEM to edit and run your programs.
Double-click on JEM.jar . This will start JEM. If this doesn’t happen, see frequently asked questions.
The editor has buttons (and menus) for common operations, such as
- Run a program
- Stop (a running) program
- Create a New program (in a separate editor tab)
- Open an existing program (in a separate editor tab)
- Save a modified program
- Open an Interactive Console (to try Python commands before committing them into a program)
- Open editor Preferences (such as setting font and tab size)
Other ways to run programs
You may also run JythonMusic programs using other editors. These are intended for more experienced users, as they involve more detailed setup.
